After School have been on insanely long hiatus that could even rival Ola’s 2 year+ wait periods between single releases, but they are finally back in Japan with a new single entitled Heaven.
The song is a sultry disco tune with a strong sensual vibe. The girls basically sing about dancing while heavy bass plays in the background. It has a sleazy 70’s feel to it, but in a really good way. I guess 3 years after T-ara’s game changing Roly Poly, disco is still ruling the pop scene!
The video features extremely solid dance moves, fantastic lighting and tons of hair flips. Girls work the pole and the sequined booty shorts simultaneously. There are those annoying wide shots that last too long as in all Japanese videos, but the editing is better than average, especially when not in the dance scenes. This comeback really comes hard.
