      Great aesthetic, terrible sound

    • Rob Whetzel

      I agree that her aesthetic is great but her songs aren’t that good sound wise. She’s trying too hard to sound young when she’s in her 30s, the same with her previous album. You can see on her twitter she surrounds herself with young artists with this same almost eurobeat candy pop music. I wish she would make more mature electro music, I miss her old stuff. But she seems to be enjoying herself so at least there’s that 😊Hope she does well and I’m looking forward to more later.

      didn’t like this at first but it really grew on me after a few more listens. i love the instrumental break

    • hhhh

      MIRI is from Rhymeberry, not Lime Berry. Good song, can’t say I enjoyed the video though.

      I like it! It reminds me of Saori@destiny (or Saoriiiii)’s stuff from her WOW WAR TECHNO album.
