Holy smokes, Checkmate is really going through a change, and for the better if you were to ask me. Anyone that follows them knows what I am talking about. The casual listener will know them from their first release, 「DESTROY THE FUTURE」. An excellent song, super catchy. As of late a newer style has been emerging…… and it is a step in a harsher direction.
Checkmate is a favorite around these parts, and really polished for a new alt idol unit to be sure. I always make sure to have Destroy The Future on my YouTube rotation when it is time to do housework (yes, I do housework). Well, they have given us a couple of live videos and I will have to add them to the ever growing viewing list.
I just don’t know how you could not love this group. I can’t wait until they give us a release, because these girls rock pretty good.
