「踊ってない夜が気に入らない!」

“Oddloop” by Frederic | YouTube sidebar adventure time! I stumbled upon this song while working on our ongoing How to Collect Japanese Pop Music series, and, well, it’s bouncy as hell. Frederic is a band off Kobe, Japan. This song is from their major label debut, also called Oddloop, released back in 2014. Sure, the music video is enigmatic (look at how she stares!) but then, their music videos come off that same template (same director, apparently). The lyrics, though, when translated properly, suggest this weird ennui about having fun, about how it all happens over and over again without resolution. (The YouTube translations, while clunky, just make it more trippy.) And then you go back to that music video. All good, this. [NB]
