Electro powered Japanese idols Perfume are set to release their new single “Magic of Love” later this month, and to whet our appetites, they have released a short version of the dazzling promo video. And while I normally hate "short versions", we seem to getting at least half the song here, along with lots of stellar op-art visuals that answer the question, “what if your outfit matched the wallpaper?"
Sonically, I think the tune is a cut above Perfume’s recent output. I like how, for a change, you can pick out their individual voices minus the usual auto-tune style processing. Are we ready for a fully human Perfume? I guess we’ll find out.
