Pink Fantasy tend to re-emerge right when you need them. In this case, they’ve returned during the week leading up to Halloween. Their spooky sound and image are perfectly suited to the season. And unless I missed something, this is the group’s first release without the creepy bunny-mask girl. Has she finally been revealed? Or, is she just taking a break?
Whatever the case, Bizarre Story: Get Out is another successful play at the group’s niche sound. It’s not nearly as rock-inspired as some past tracks, but still embraces Pink Fantasy’s atmospheric energy. The instrumental is awash with eerie synths and keys, giving parts of the song an appeal that verges on classical. This melds with lurching, dubstep-adjacent electronics. Get Out has plenty of texture, made more compelling by the girls themselves. Their vocals float on top with a light, wispy sound that compliments the song’s haunted house allure.
As a whole, Get Out is a bit scattershot for me. I can leave or take its verses. I just don’t find them very memorable or even intentional in their structure. But, the song’s chorus is a winner. Its melody isn’t spectacular, but Pink Fantasy’s delivery adds an evocative touch that keeps interest high. We move from creepy, doll-like vocal layering to jazzier flourishes that showcase the members’ skill. It’s satisfying to hear a girl group experiment with these different tones instead of relying the chant-shout delivery that’s become so common over the past few years. Get Out feels more like a statement than a standout song, but it’ll definitely be earning some plays before October has finished.
