The band not only posed with torii gates but now they’ve taken it to the next level by performing within them in the music video for upcoming single Tamaki no Hashi ga Gotoshi, out on July 10.
The hard-hitting song also sees them perform beside the gates, on temple ground but this time in the day instead of night, and cool moving graphics that mirror traditional Japanese art with its use of backgrounds.
What Kiryu is excellent at composing is a disconcerting and foreboding feel in their music and they’ve accomplished that yet again! This goes from Mahiro’s off-kilter vocals, the blazing guitar and bass riffs, Junji’s insane drumming, to the use of flutes and koto (“Japanese harp”). Despite all this, the band manages to put in an upbeat section to change things up just a little bit, enough to keep your interest peaked.
