Zombie-Chang is the moniker of Tokyo-based singer and songwriter Meirin. “Petit Petit Petit” is written and produced by her, and performed with help from the rhythm section of another act based in the Japanese capital, Never Young Beach.

“Petit Petit Petit” opens with a clarion call to the “London squad” with the strident new wave of “Lemonade“, a more vivid re-imagining of one of Meirin’s early songs, which bleeds into “Ijiwaru Bakari Shinaide” (AKA “Don’t Be So Mean”), which was selected by The Weekend for his Memento Mori Vol. 2 playlist in 2018.

 

The “Never Young Beach” rhythm section breathes new life into earlier single “I Can’t Get To Sleep“, ahead of the change-of-pace contemplation of “Sometimes, I Don’t Know” and the irresistible Japanese radio hit “Mona Lisa” (with has an equally fun gym and moon-based (!)  music video).

Meirin’s desire to make a “3 chord band-like” song is perfectly manifested on 2nd side opener “The Reason Is Love“, which is followed by the first international single “We Should Kiss“. The short and spiky punk blast of “Nanka Mukatsuku” (“I Hate You”) adds another flavour ahead of the art-pop “Onion Slice“. The album closes out with the definitive version of a Zombie-Chang classic, “Goodbye My Love And Turn Around“.
