Mixed nuts ( ミックスナッツ) -Official Hige Dandism ( Official髭男dism)

a bit of the lyrics:

"Life, and I know I'm full

of anxiety with my true feelings caught in my teeth, even if I chew it Tego

It 's like a ghostly peeled peanut that's instantly repelled by the world ."

Personal Japan billboard Review:

I must say, the Anime trailer and the music video seem to be a bit crazy and confused. However, I believe that’s the reason of mixed nuts, they are all nuts! ( Joking)

I find this creative Chaos very exciting! If everything was predictable, What would be the fun in that?

What I find more appealing in this band, Its they don’t need any labels . Because its clear from all they work they can make a future in Music industry for every generation. And that’s the real magic of an artist to reach the heart of every generation!
