I drag the city late at night.
It's in my mouth, it's in my hair.
The people fill the city because
The city fills the people, oh yeah.
I cross the street, avoid the freeze -
A city's warmer by a couple degrees.
The smell of food. The smell of rain.
I'm not immune - I love this tune.

I wanna love more.
There's a river in my head.
I just wanna love more.
There's a river in my head.

I wanna love more.
There's a river in my head.
I just wanna love more.

I wanna love more.
I just wanna love more.
I wanna love more.
I just wanna love more.

Song Production Information


Maybe many people in Japan still don't know EverythingButTheGirl, but they're a super famous artist worldwide.
This track uses a basic loop style with few sound materials, and creates strange plugging and unplugging sound effects, which are used as a house-styled technique, and is said to be a cool and stylish track.
This video features games from the BEMANI series, and while it seems like a mismatch at first glance, perhaps that's a cool point as well.

Video Production Information


Was this music video created as a tie-up with IIDX!? The more I think about it, D.D.R. and beatmania, who everyone knows as similar games to IIDX, show their gameplay and game screens.
Perhaps you're a bit attracted to this video from its high impact, but if you try to relax and devote yourself to this song, you should be able to feel an indescribable calming and comfortable sensation.
Both dj TAKA and GOLI stated these feelings, but you'll understand after listening to it several times, right~?
By the way, what do you all think about somewhat glimpsing into a British amusement center?
