BUMP OF CHICKEN reveal their Lyric Video for “Spica”

Last week pop-rock band BUMP OF CHICKEN released their 25th single “Hanashi ga Shitai yo / Sirius / Spica.”  In the wake of this release, the group have finally chosen to publish a lyric video for its third A-side “Spica” to their YouTube channel.

This video sets the song’s lyrics against the background of outer space, showcasing imagery such as asteroid belts and planetary rings. The exact order of the images is meant to match the track’s progression from a sparse, synth-driven composition to a powerful mid-tempo ballad supported by a gospel-like choir.

You’ll find the lyric video for “Spica” right after the cut.
