Arlequin supplements with more audio-visual content in preparation for the simultaneous release of the singles “Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae” and “Siren” on August 25. After having seen the music video for Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae, this time around we have the music video for the blustery and murky Siren!

What makes the Siren music video stand out is the band’s casual attire and smudged black makeup, while wrecking their respective instruments with a rock ‘n’ roll spirit to the cathartic, high-tension song.

Then there are the forlorn-looking members going all out as they aggressively jump around with what’s left of their destroyed instruments. It even gets to a point where the guitarists are strumming the air with just the guitar neck in hand.

Vocalist Aki’s digitally altered singing is met with a speedy delivery that matches the high-pitched guitar playing and even key changes. If you listen carefully, there are also underlying harsher vocals that follow the chorus. The piano also makes a return from Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae, but as an accompaniment that adds doom and gloom to the verses.

When you compare all these elements together against Sekai no Owari to Yoake Mae, it is most definitely the antithesis. This may make sense why they’re considered as two singles rather than a double A-side single. And that a “complete edition” exists, which includes both singles into one package, reinforces this idea.

Additionally, if you’re interested in Arlequin’s casual attire that appears in the music video, it’s actually a part of their new merchandise line-up and you can grab your own Cinematic Circus #004 hoodie right here.

The hoodie Arlequin used in the music video “Siren”: Cinematic Circus #004 hoodie.
