Japanese dance/vocal/rap group LIL LEAGUE have released their new single “Lollipop”, the lead track from their upcoming first full-length album “TRICKSTER”, along with a music video.
The song title hints at something sweet, but the theme of the lyrics is the contrast between “the surface and what lies beneath”, or the light side and the dark. We all yearn for a world that is sweet and glamourous, but beneath the surface lie bitter and painful experiences. Artists who live public lives in the bright spotlight may be plunged into darkness for saying or doing the wrong thing.
LIL LEAGUE “‘Lollipop” music video:
The video was filmed on location in Taiwan at Lihpao Resort as well as at Shitou Park, an abandoned theme park that is now used as a filming location. Look out for the group’s high-speed performance in front of the brightly lit Ferris wheel and giant candy statue in this otherwise desolate, eerie amusement park. It’s a video that perfectly intercuts footage from one resort that is lively and thriving, and one that is deserted.
LIL LEAGUE made their debut in January last year and won the Best New Artist Award at the 65th Japan Record Awards, while their debut single ‘Hunter’ ranked No.1 on the Oricon Chart and No.2 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 chart.
‘TRICKSTER’ First album released on February 28, 2024!
An AnimeTV x LIL LEAGUE interview will be published in the week following the album release date! Please stay tuned!
