Did you know that yesterday June 28th was Electro World’s 6th anniversary? Considering how much progresses our girls have made to the top, it seems like it’s way more time!
Anyway, isn’it the best moment to talk about one of the best and most favorite Perfume songs ever?
Near Futuristic Technopop Unit
Electro World is the third Major and 8th overall single of Perfume’s Discography, and it’s been released on June 28th 2006. This single is the last piece of the “Near Futuristic trilogy” created by their producer Yasutaka Nakata and composed by the singles Linear Motor Girl, Computer City and Electro World.
This song is considered as one of the best Perfume songs ever for it’s futuristic vibe and upbeat rythm, and today it’s still one of the most played songs in all of their live shows as one of the songs that represents better the near futuristic technopop unit concept that raised Perfume in their early days.
The super energetic beat, the great singing of the girls perfectly synchronized with the various structure of the song, and the fast bridge that explodes into to the fresh chorus makes this song one of the best pieces of music produced by Nakata for the girls: If you’re watching a Perfume live show and you suddenly see all of the audience jumping like crazy and singing, you can be sure that the song playing is Electro World.
The coupling song for this single is Wonder 2, another well known song by the Perfume fans, also known as the “ballad” of Complete Best. Based on a very easy listening melody, this is one of the most touching Perfume songs, and it was usually used as ending track of their early concerts, and it’s still played today as one of the most quiet songs leading to the end of the show.
In a old Perfume interview, A-chan revealed that they started to see their popularity grow around the release of Electro World: Even though they weren’t still known nationwide, with the release of this single the girls got the chance to perform a show in the well known district of Akihabara in Tokyo; the girls managed to promote the show by themselves distributing flyers in the streets of Akihabara to the people passing by, a famous scene that can be found in many of the Perfume videos reminiscing their history as sign of their neverending strength of will.
Their sacrifices weren’t in vain…
