But first, to their new video! Presumably, the track is named after Tokyo’s Korea-town, where K-Pop rules supreme. That’s what we gather from this odd mash-up of images, from the face paint to the superimposition. And from the geishas skateboarding around. You know the way Photobooth screws up when you’re just trying to make it look like you’re hanging out on a rollercoaster? That’s the aesthetic of this video. Sometimes you might think you’re seeing four of the same thing, sometimes you’d be correct.
But back to the nostalgic frame! We’re here to tell you all a well-known secret. A few of these lads were once in a band called The Wahas who used to make your humble author laugh. Sure it was back in high school, sure she was only watching at underage gigs, sure, whatever- they supported The Vines. They mattered, okay? Friends sobbed bitterly when they disbanded. There would be no more of the below ‘What Would You Do If’ videos. Alas. Luckily, they’re all still on YouTube and this one still makes me laugh, but is probably not PC. Enjoy.
Check the boys out when they headline this week’s CANT SAY.
There new EP, Moon Eater, is out new month.
