Rhymester Complete Song for Third Album

Over the last couple of months or so, Rhymester's Utamaru (who has worked with Halcali before as a guest singer on the FPM produced Wakakusa Dance) has been mentioning working on a new song, but had been keeping it a secret as to what it was. After seeing this post in particular, I thought it might have been a new song with our girls, but decided that those hands looked a bit too, well, old to be Halcali.

Turns out I was wrong though! The song (featuring Utamaru, and produced by Arikikku) is called, believe it or not, Driver's Licence. In the song it seems to be the girl who takes the wheel, leaving the "stupid boy with no driver's licence" to fend for himself in the passenger seat on their late night date in the car. I'm sure their mothers wouldn't approve of that.

Anyway, as to the song itself, anyone (like me, to be honest) who was expecting another party choon like Wakakusa Dance might not want to get their hopes up- the song is a "180 degree turn away" from that, which means;

A languid, dreamy song, carrying all the cute mysteriousness of a picture book for adults.
I know that doesn't make too much sense, and in fact sounds like it might rest ominously in the Tip Taps Tip half of Halcali's back catalogue, but Utamaru mentions that they'll be rapping though, which is good news.

Like the new FPM single, I'm not entirely sure about this, but like that new single, I'm waiting with a quiet expectation that it'll be great.

The rap on Wakakusa was damn good, and I am hopeful this song will be fun too, even if it's a bit slowish.

^agreed all over.

although, from the beginning of the song concept description, i was thinking of something completely ridiculous and fun.
like a super horny girl trying to force herself on this pour innocent boy or something slightly backwards like that. :P

Hmm, I'm having a hard time deciding whether I should apply for the recording of their upcoming appearance on Re:MTV.

I'd like to see the girls up close once, but then again I'm not much of a MTV fan and I have no clue what the show is like. Anyone knows if it's only talk or do artists perform too?

Seems like it's only talk, no live performance. The show is mainly just playing videos requests, though on Friday they have a guest artist.

I think I'll spare myself having to watch a bunch of J-pop videos. :)

Shame they won't be singing, I was thinking about trying to get tickets myself.
It's free though isn't it? It might be worth the trip just to see them and maybe get a few photos or something.

Yes it's free! So it's still a good deal if you just want to see them up close. :)
I doubt they'd allow photos during the show though.
