Deadly Drive is GRANRODEO's 28th single & it was released last month on 21st Feb .
This's the duo's 1st single release of 2018 & the A-side was used as the opening theme song to promote the Bungo Stray Dogs DEAD APPLE movie which opened in Japan cinemas yesterday .
Vocalist KISHOW has a voice role credit in the Bungo Stray Dogs DEAD APPLE movie .
Deadly Drive is quite an aggressive rock song which KISHOW surprisingly displayed his falsetto vocals after the 1st verse of the song . I thought I would heard more of it but that didn't happened .
Magical ・ Story serves as the B-side in Deadly Drive & this contrasts the A-side very well with it being a very fun upbeat track .
When I 1st heard Magical ・ Story , I immediately thought of Lovers High & TRASH CANDY as both songs also utilised a considerable amount of synthesisers in the tracks melodies but Magical ・ Story didn't went overboard with the synthesisers usage .
GRANRODEO kicks starts 2018 with Deadly Drive which's something I enjoyed very much and as mentioned before , I'm still surprised that the quality of their B-sides is on par if not sometimes better than the A-side themselves .
I do hope that GRANRODEO can release a new album but judging from their last 2 albums which each has 4 singles , I wouldn't be surprised if they will release 1 more single before doing so .
Either way , I'm waiting in anticipation to see what's their next music release move .
