(available with English subtitles)
In the anime-rock style song written by UNISON SQUARE GARDEN’s Tabuchi Tomoya, Wasuta sings about chasing after desires without holding back.
It’s not exactly what you would call greed
It’s more like a craving
The thing that you want in the moment
To try as much as you can!
With exciting new choreography by Acchan and costumes by Kimura U, the members reveal a more confident aspect of their “cat-like” personas, teasing their long (but “gentle”) claws and delivering top-level vocal harmonies and synchronized dance moves.
Wasuta leader Nanase Hirokawa said, “I’m so excited we can share this new song with our fans! We’ve packed each song on this new mini-album with such care, and I think it really shows who we’ve become after 5 years together. There are even more exciting things coming from Wasuta, so please look forward to it!”
What’s “standard”!? will contain 5 new tracks and will be available worldwide on November 25.
