The PV for S/mileage’s 4th single titled Short Cut has been released.
There are two scenes in the PV, one in a hair saloon called Salon dream and the other on the moon with a view of the Earth. The dance routine seems quite simple, and I didn’t notice any hard-to-do moves, which might be explained by their unusual flower outfit which is kind of hard to dance in.
The title art is also really eye-catching since it is first written in a futuristic font probably for the version on the moon, below it it’s written on a saloon’s banner representing 4 heads with the 4 colors of the members in short hair (for the saloon) and lastly their usual name.
In the salon scene, the eye-catching action must be Yuuka and Ayaka actually having their hair cut, which is quite nice to see since we see them going from long to short, and the cute part must be where the hairstylist asks the girls “Minna no Yume wa Nani?” (What does everyone dream about) and S/mileage respong in speak bubbles that contain drwaings of each one of the girls (although Saki responds in a dream bubble), and each bubble is colored in the member’s color.
In the second scene, S/mileage act really cutely while wanting to take pictures, plant their flag that represents their famous logo on the moon and playing with rocks that seem gravity-free, and their outfits really make them stand out in this unusual place. The funny thing is that in all the preview, I noticed that Saki doesn’t appear not even once in the close-up vers. for the casual outfits but her high note at the end makes up for the loss.
Overall, the PV really boosted the song and made it more attractive, and both the outfits and the songreally impressed me in this video.
The release date is set for 2/9.
