VIDEO: Momoiro Clover Z Gets Hairy and Scary in “My Little Nightmare” Theme PV

"Saraba, Itoshiki Kanashimi-tachi Yo" is the group's 9th single

BEWARE! Idol group sensation Momoiro Clover Z has a new single (their 9th) and a new video on the loose! The track -- produced by legendary rocker Hotei Tomoyasu -- is called "Saraba, Itoshiki Kanashimi-tachi Yo" and hey, what do you know, it’s also the opening theme song for the My Little Nightmare J-drama now streaming on Crunchyroll!

 

For the clip, Momoiro Clover Z have tossed away their usual shiny brightly colored Power Ranger style uniforms for orante black and white clothes and bizarre bee-hive hairdos (someone please form a cosplay group based on this NOW). Much singing and dancing ensues....

 

 

What's with the sudden interest in monochromatics? As Tokyo Hive explains, “The lyrics are about advancing forward and to love despite being engulfed in darkness and becoming conflicted with yourself. It’s basically about the co-existence of good and evil. The girls also wear black and white outfits to depict this contrast.”

 

And here you were just thinking it was just another idol video!
