POLKADOT STINGRAY will release its third album Nanimono on December 16 and have revealed the amazingly animated music video for Keshin. The action-packed bonanza was made in collaboration with animation company Kamikaze Douga who also worked on anime Pop Team Epic.

Here it shows an animated and alternate version of vocalist and guitarist Shizuku fighting off hordes of enemies in a destroyed Tokyo she’s transported to. This all ends in a big showdown with the final boss revealing that there’s more to this than meets the eye.

Keshin captures why POLKADOT STINGRAY is ridiculously catchy with their wonderfully fast and hectic rhythms in all aspects of the band. The keyboard is a fundamental driving force as not only is it a nice touch, it also complements guitarist Ejima Harushi’s high-pitched guitar work. Of course, we have Shizuku’s clear and poppy vocals unifying everything.

You can stream or purchase Keshin on digital storefronts now, and get the album Nanimono on December 16, where you’ll find Keshin included.

Album Nanimono will release in regular edition with 13 songs in total and eight previously released songs such as FREE and JET. The limited-edition adds a DVD with a Nanimono version of their online performance on October 15, and an off-shot of Bakutan Zenryoku.

If you were lucky to nab the now sold-out store-specific editions from either UNIVERSAL MUSIC STORE, Amazon, TSUTAYA, and TOWER RECORDS, you also get a 14th song consisting of a demo. However, this differs depending on where you purchased the album from. The band wasn’t joking when they called it Shizuku’s Pachinko Demo CD. Pachinko is a mechanical game in Japan that is often associated with gambling and it’s definitely the case here.

Their statement all-white outfits accentuate the stylings of the song as they’re shown rocking out in their artist photo.
