It’s tough to be new in town, right?
I must confess that I haven’t been totally open-minded when it comes to VANIRU.
It’s a quite new band, formed in May this year.
I’ve watched some videos and rejected them since I’ve been thinking “the music is too much the 80s” or “the singer knows too well how pretty he is, how annoying“.
But I take that back, ’cause this video caught my interest.
Yes, I still think their music has this “80s-sound”, but that doesn’t make it bad. Hey, I like a lot of music from the 80s… or modern music inspired of it.
The song is pretty and gives me a nice feeling. The singing is dark and intriguing. His movements dreamy.
Something here reminds me of… Buck-tick and Atsushi Sakurai…? I’m not sure why.
This is actually good stuff. I promise to be more aware next time VANIRU brings something to the table! ^^
