FLOWER FLOWER - Mannequin
Live at SHIBUYA CLUB QUATTRO 2013.10.07
2) Subarashii Sekai
3) Bye Bye
Mannequin is FLOWER FLOWER's 2nd single & it was released on 2nd Aug .
The group's last single release was last Sept's Takaramono . The A-side was written & composed by vocalist yui .
Drama serves as the B-side in the single while the 2 CDs version of Mannequin also include 3 live tracks that were recorded 4 years ago at Tokyo's SHIBUYA CLUB QUATTRO .
FLOWER FLOWER returned last year with Takaramono but did not carry out much promotion or activities . This Summer , the yui fronted band is back in force with 1 man lives & music festival appearances .
It's good to have FLOWER FLOWER back & Mannequin presents a more harder edgier sound which's quite different from Takaramono . Despite Mannequin being quite lengthy , I actually do not mind this time round .
Likewise , Drama plays a different contrast against the A-side as the B-side is more laidback & relaxed .
I still wish yui would go back to her old YUI solo days but she seems to be doing just fine in FLOWER FLOWER . Hopefully someday or another that will change in the near future .
