Hanabie. have unleashed a new single and video, Girl’s Talk.

Ahead of their Download Festival slot next month, the quartet are clearly aiming to level-up at the moment, with vocalist Yukina proudly stating that, “We’ve created another song that only we can produce! From the moment I received the initial demo from Matsuri that included the glass sound in the intro, I knew I wanted to create a luxurious and ambient song.

“I’ve been looking forward to releasing this for a while. Isn’t it a very precious time for people of any age to meet with friends after a long time and reminisce about their past? It’s nice to have someone to share stories with and I would be happy if Hanabie. can be included in everyone’s ‘talks’.”

Drummer Chika adds that Girl’s Talk is “not only a cute song, but also shows a new aspect of Hanabie.! Yukina’s rap and Matsuri’s melody are very impressive and catchy! The drum phrases in this song were designed to be cool and mature, but I also kept in mind a sense of speed and a slow and fast patterns. In particular, I thought of a difficult drum phrase for the first melody of the second verse, so I hope that those who have drum experience will try to copy it. In the music video, I tried to give a mature look and there was a new challenge for me, so please check it out!”
