New Group2: “Milk”

Ever so often, a wonky and downright goofy band will change things up to try to get more major-label attention, usually when the Japanese music industry is enjoying a band boom. Sometimes, it works and other times it results in an interesting group turning into Spitz Jr. Thankfully, Group2 remain just as odd on new single “Milk” as they did on their last release. What starts as upright synth-rock soon settles in to a more dizzy guitar-centered groove, with vocals stumbling off of the music. The whole thing sounds like it’s one uneven step from tumbling out — and when the dialogue sample creeps in midway through, it nearly does go over — but Group2 manage to hold it all together to create a nice bit of haze. Listen above.
