Chika Radar #7: Anthurium
In a few months, アンスリューム (Anthurium) are going to celebrate their first anniversary; they have released two live MVs to show us what kind of idols they are.
Every now and then you come across some stuff that does seem interesting, but not that much. Then, after a couple days you get back at it and say «wait, this is actually cool». And then you can’t stop listening to it. Yeah, this is what happened to me with アンスリューム (Anthurium), colorful idols named after this flower.

In my defense, I have a good explanation for my unforgivable mistake. It was raining that day, I just got back from work and I was tired and… Yeah, nice excuses. Truth is that I had listened only to “アンスデーム” (Ansudēmu), which didn’t really pique my interest. Maybe I was seriously too tired, because it actually sounds pretty nice: awesome bass lines, upbeat rhythms, 8-bit stuff, catchy and cheerful vocals… This is even more than just nice!

But to be honest, the moment I changed my mind about them was when I watched their live MV for “だだだっ” (Da-Da-Da), released some days before the other one. This is what made me really fall for them: a more rock-oriented tune full of energy with a chorus that got stuck in my head. I can’t stop singing it in my mind. Seriously, send help.

Anthurium are going to hold their first anniversary live next year in March, so they’re quite young as a unit; despite that, I already want to listen to some more songs from them. Yes, I need more Anthurium in my life, so I’m going to plant some in my garden until they release a new song.
