We have a short radio preview of the new Momoiro Clover Z song, Bionic Cherry! For those who don’t remember/know, Bionic Cherry, along with Contradiction from their album Battle and Romance, is going to be one of the Momoclo songs tied in to a new movie coming out called Salvage Mice. However, unlike Contradiction, Bionic Cherry is a new song made for the movie.
You can check out the amazing preview on Youtube here!
I had no idea what to expect from this song, but I was surprised! This song is Momoclo crazy + rock. All their charm and energy in this genre of music is a real treat, and even though this is just a short preview, I’m in love with the song already. If I have one complaint, it’s that the refrain doesn’t tie in to the verses quite perfectly, but that is actually fairly typical of Momoclo and I’m sure I’ll be used to it within a few more listens. I remember feeling similarly towards Mirai Bowl when that came out and I love that song very much.
Bionic Cherry is set to release on Momoiro Clover Z’s new single, but it’s not the A-side… Or the B-side… It’s actually a C-side on only one of the editions of the single (regular edition only, not limited A or B) . That diminished my very high hopes for it, when I heard, but any thoughts of possible inferiority have been vanquished thanks to the fabulous preview.
Speaking of the single Bionic Cherry will be on, the single has been named – it will be called 労働讃歌 (“Roudou Sanka”, – “Labor Force Anthem”). Pictures of the outfits for the single are up all over the official site… They certainly match the theme of the title – Momoclo look like a bunch of drunken salarymen, complete with ties on their heads and suits. I don’t think it’s the most flattering look for them, but after those awful Coco*Natsu outfits I can’t complain too much.
We also have a B-side title, “Santa-san”. Judging from the title I expect a Christmas-theme song. Roudou Sanka and Santa-san will be on all editions, but Bionic Cherry will be only on the regular edition. It looks like there will be a PV for Roudou Sanka, but not for the other songs. The single is set to release on 11/23/11, which means it is going to be a very long month and a half for us Momoclo fans. In the meantime, I’ll be listening to the preview of Bionic Cherry obsessively. *_*
