vistlip has at last shared its first music video from the upcoming full album “M.E.T.A.”! The music video in talks is the album’s featured track ‘BGM “METAFICTION”‘. The new album is available on March 30 in three editions: Lipper, Vister, and the Master edition.
BGM “METAFICTION” is a catchy head-bobbing song that exemplifies a neat and creative mixture between rock and hints of jazz. This sensational piece is composed by drummer Tohya, who is also the songwriting powerhouse and genius behind the band. The piece also showcases bassist Rui’s funky bass riffs and guitarist Yuh’s silky-smooth guitar solo.
The music video opens with dense flowing smoke paired with soft neon lights to match the song’s jazzy vibe—a combo that is typical of neo-noir films. Also worthy of mention is the band’s new vibrant and fashionable look, which is credited partly to guitarist and leader Umi at the end of the video. The video for BGM “METAFICTION” truly offers both visual and acoustic stimulation!
As per the band’s comment in the description of the video, M.E.T.A. will feature both familiar and new musical elements. This gives both longtime fans and newcomers something to nostalgically reminisce and mouthwateringly anticipate. M.E.T.A. marks the band’s newest full album in three years and four months, and is also a “fresh starting point” for the band’s creative direction:
A “breakthrough album” featuring songs that look back to the band’s origins and suggest hints of a new direction. “M.E.T.A.”, vistlip’s first full-length album in three years and four months, will be released on March 30, marking the epoch of the 15th anniversary of the band’s formation! The album is a “fresh starting point” for the next stage of creativity as artists, showcasing their own creative vision, musical composition, and visual work.
Regarding the album editions which there will be three of; Lipper is a CD-only edition with eight tracks plus one bonus track Sunday. Both the Vister and the Master edition come with a CD and a DVD. Other than the music video, the contents in the DVD differ between the two editions. Notably, Vister‘s DVD contains an additional off-shoot gallery, whilst the Master edition contains an additional animated lyric video for the track Muon (無音).
