miscast – ミッドナイト・スルー・ザ・ナイト (Midnight Through The Night)

Electronicore-inspired idol group miscast released a new MV for “ミッドナイト・スルー・ザ・ナイト” (Midnight Through The Night), a fun song mixing EDM and metal elements.
Combining the danceable beats of EDM and the aggressiveness of metal has always been a pretty risky mash-up, but when done right it usually results in some fun stuff. miscast are an electronicore idol group and their latest MV for “ミッドナイト・スルー・ザ・ナイト” (Midnight Through The Night) shows how to mix these two apparently distant worlds.

Fun is totally the keyword here. The danceable 4/4 beat and the auto-tuned vocals make you feel like you’re listening to an EDM song, while the idol-ish synths and the infectious chorus bring pop-oriented elements; but there are also some rock guitars and that’s why you know that this is not your average electro-pop song. You start hearing some demonic vocals in the background, but you’re not that much surprised: you know that this is an electronicore idol unit.

And then it happens: a huge breakdown with some monster growling in the distance hits you with all its might. Again, you’re not surprised: actually, you love it. That’s what miscast is supposed to do, and they do it very well.

The MV also uses some interesting elements, like synthwave-inspired visuals and weird stuff from fake 80s TV shows. Ok, this one may throw you off a bit, but you’ll still enjoy it.

Since the idol scene started to expand its musical boundaries, we all knew that an electronicore unit was bound to happen someday. miscast filled that empty spot and since we’re talking about a group featuring former members of XTEEN and KING∞RAGE you know that some high quality stuff will come from them.
