UNiTE. has released their double A-side single Citrus / Eyes_Tea_Bitter_Brown that’s out today on July 10. In the run-up to it, the band prepared us with details of the single and artist photos but they also released the sweet, sad, and summery music video for Citrus.

It’s here we see his younger self and a boy playing together after school, indicated by their randoseru or Ransel backpacks. The two children end up stopping by a set of stairs where they fold and throw their first lot of paper planes from, only for them to not glide. This, however, does not discourage them and they make two more that successfully glide.

Soon after setting off again, the boys are seen fighting, with one of them eventually running away and calling back to our main character soon after. The same boy pulls a face but this time at the main characters older self over a railroad crossing, only to disappear once the train passes.

Throughout this whole music video, the older self is catching up, following or experiencing a similar field of view to his younger counterpart, making for a rather emotional experience. It’s a sad ending but nevertheless so full of character and I even had something in my throat at one point with eyes readying the waterworks.

Citrus as a song illustrates UNiTE’s poppier side with its light and crisp instrumentation that, when paired with the music video and their look, really does give off a strong summer vibe.
