DiVA 3rd Single [Lost the way] PV Preview
DiVA has released a short preview of the PV for their upcoming 3rd single [Lost the way] on Avex's YouTube channel. Check it out below.
The PV has quite a lot of similarity with that their previous single Cry, both of which are shot inside a white room. The style and costumes are also quite dull like those of Cry.
Lost the way is DiVA's first single to include their new 6 members. There was some worry from the fans that the new members will take screentime from the 4 AKB48 members in DiVA, but rest assured they are just backdancers and most of the shots still feature the main girls.
Ultraman also makes an appearance in the PV, near the end of the short preview. Lost the way will be used as the theme song for the Ultraman Saga movie, which DiVA will also play in as part of Team U. The movie roadshow will be on March 24th, 2012.
Lost the way will release on March 21st, 2012.
There's quite a lot of similarity to Cry. I guess when you go "dance and vocal" there's not much you can variate on. All 3 DiVA singles have the same kind of sound. The choreography is superb, but the grey costumes are a major turn off for me. In fact I prefer the costumes worn by the backdancers. :/
