I can't wait to hear the new song!

I don't think Fuzzy will be released as a physical single (that's weird to release the lyrics and then the MV but no information about anything else) , I think they will announce the release date of a full album soon...

I like the new song, it sounds a little bit like Polkadot Stingray's songs but with the Honey sounds. Mami is awesome, her guitar cut perfectly through the mix. Haruna's voice is so great at the end. Tomomi & Rina always perfect.

The song is pretty good. I was surprised by Haruna voice at the last chorus. I hoped to see Tomomi more on the video

Wow, for a song called Fuzzy, you would expected to be a little more upbeat and happy. 

But I really like this song, Rock on from the very beginning with the screeching guitars, to Haru's scream and the guitar feedback at the end. The instrumentation is really cool, the bass and guitars stand out here to me. And like with the last single, it gives me Honey vibes, it kinda reminds me of Platform Syndrome with some emo-ness from OVER. I think Scandal is establishing their signature sound now after the departure from SONY

The music video is cool, it started off with a 90's vibe, with the colors, clothes, and the props, but then the smartphone came up and the vibe was over lol. It is a bit more of a dark and emo style, especially that ending, and with the girls wearing black, punk goth like clothing. Which I realized they shot this when they did the 2nd promotional shoot a while back.

This is technically a summer single right? they hadn't had one since 2016, and this kinda gives me summer love vibes. I can't wait to get my hands on the single tomorrow! They must be planning something big if they gave this song out as quick as they did, maybe a new album Happy

I really like the song, it has the catchy sound that always makes Scandal stand out.
Mami's guitar and Haruna's vocal jump right off the screen.
Scandal's music and arrangement are, once again, astounding.


Spoiler:

The ending to the video surprised me, it is a lot darker than I expected, especially after having read the lyrics. (Thanks so much for the translation. Jade, you are so poetic.) I have always enjoyed the sad love songs that Scandal has done since they always had that ray of hope in them, and I read the lyrics that way in Fuzzy too, but I didn't see that in the video.

I personally connect Scandal's songs with the Beatles, both musically and lyrically. Maybe Rina was writing her version of Yesterday, a sad song that ends sadly, but I didn't get that feeling until I saw the video.
Or perhaps that is just the interpretation of the「video director

I guess the ending can be interpreted as... well... "fuzzy". We don't know if she reemerged or not, if she will be able to move on, which I think is what the song is about.

Interesting song, I like the melody, I think the song match perfectly with Masterpiece on an album. I have the feeling Mabataki will be not included.

Not really grabbing me at the moment, either the song or the video. There's nothing specific I think is wrong with it; it just seems a bit generic.

Well, I've said it before but not *every* song is going to be my favorite, and that's ok. I did really like both Masterpiece and Mabataki and look forward to the album, assuming that's what this is leading up to (hope so).

Honestly agree. Which is why now I actually prefer when they deviate from their usual sound like with Mabataki or Mado wo Aketara on Honey.

Will probably need to listen to it a bit more before I start really liking this song.

I think they got to a well defined style in Honey and this fits right into that. And I really like what they've been doing (Honey is my favorite album now) but in comparison, Fuzzy is not as good as the stuff there. A few years ago I think it would have sounded amazing but now it's just "ok".

... I hope this makes sense.

Not doing it for me. Need to move on from the Platform/Over/Masterpiece mindset.

Track 9 on their next album maybe, but not a single. 

Still love the band.

Loooove

I agree, but the scene at the end of the video doesn't seem to match up with the feeling I get from the song.
And I guess I'm just used to believing in the romantic hope I get from many Scandal songs.

It would be a better match for me if, after the label credit, she reemerged from the water and "shook it off."
(Uhh, sorry, no intention of any relation to any pop song. This is, after all, real rock'n'roll!)
Nice One

Well you can't please everyone lol Scandal finally sticking to a certain rock sound begged by fans for years and now no one cares about it. Well if this is the kind of sound Scandal is going through right now then so be it, Onion Whip but we all know they will do a few songs where they catch us all guard. But as much as I like the song,  I do agree that Fuzzy isn't a stand out song and it's just Scandal playing it safe.  
Their album tracks always seem to sound better than their singles, so I'm looking forward to whatever comes next.


@izzy
Honestly I think it's a good idea to just release as a one off digital single, they way they poured out alot of stuff about the song, shows us that they were not gonna treat this like a normal single, like with Koisuru Universe. If they were, we would have to wait for two months later to get the record.  But it's kinda obvious they're next release is gonna be an album, I have no doubt about that, but we don't really know for sure really.

I liked the song on first listen (and the second and third)  It's not as strong as "Masterpiece," but for me it's so much better than "Mabataki," which I didn't care for.


@izzy
I agree with you this reminded me a little of Polkadot Stingray.  That was my first impression upon hearing the opening instrumentation.  The ending of the video reminds me a bit of Polkadot's video for "Rhythmy."

Another masterpiece from SCANDAL. I suppose it was written by MAMI/RINA who where described as a modern days Lennon/McCartney in Japanese Rolling Stone (or did I dream this)?

Anyway, MAMI seem to be underrated as a guitarist even among her own fans. She is often compared to guitarists that play a number of notes per second. But MAMI, like no other, puts emotions into her playing. That is why she is such a great musician.
