Up Up Girls (Kari) are Turning Up the Heat with Their New Disco-Flavored Single

Up Up Girls (Kari) are back with a new single! But this time, with more members as it’s the second generation members’ singing debut. The single is a double A-side single and is titled “Upper Disco / FOREVER YOUNG“. It will be released on May 9th.

The single’s two a-sides have contrasting sounds. “Upper Disco” features a fast-paced disco sound that suits the group pretty well. The tune reminiscences of an early Morning Musume. disco tune and/or maybe akin to Dan Hartman’s “Relight My Fire”. However, “Upper Disco” is pretty modern as it features some EDM instrumentation. It is composed by PandaBoY who has worked with the group countless times before.

“FOREVER YOUNG” seems like a typical idol piece with a mid-tempo and a “happy-go-lucky” composition. The song is created by michitomo who has worked with other idol groups like Momoiro Clover Z (“Hashire!”), LinQ, Kikkawa You, Bitter & Sweet,  Prizmmy☆,  and others.

In true Up Front Works fashion, the second generation (named “Up Up Girls (2)”) is only featured primarily in the chorus of both songs. However, they did record their own version of “FOREVER YOUNG” that will be featured on the Regular Edition C version of the single.

Check out the songs and PVs below.  The PV for “Upper Disco” features the girls dancing and bathing in a pink-tinted onsen as a young boy is looking onwards through a hole in a fence. Meanwhile, “FOREVER YOUNG” has the girls running five kilometers through a scenic country town.

      This group was cool on its own. Why add extra (ugly) members?

      • aisasami

        Prolly because some of the members are almost past prime age in idol terms and will “graduate” soon.

      • Mr. z

        i don’t know what the problem you said “add extra (ugly) members”. They are new members and we still look them for the first time & not used with their appearance. Maybe they are not make up for some reason. Anyway, good artist/idol must look at their talent, not the look/appearance. it’s no point good look but bad/terrible vocal. We don’t know if they become cute & beautiful later…

        • wrong

          no, the two at the back right are ugly af. no business being idols.
