Single Status Update
Do you ever just cling on to an old band way, way too tightly? And I don't mean actually listening to their stuff. I mean just saying you love them when you're actually kinda over them and much prefer someone else. So, for me, that band is DELUHI. Yes, they disbanded before I even knew what visual kei was. Yes, I do still like them. But I keep telling myself they're still my favourite band even though I'm pretty damn sure it's DIAURA.
The two I'm thinking of are v[NEU] and DIV.
I followed DIV from start-to-end, but they kinda left on a mellow note for me. I always kept an eye on them and was super enthusiastic about each single/mini-/album, but none of their material (imo) got to where NEXX did. Even though I used to wait for their midnight releases on iTunes, I haven't listened to DIV in over a year. Since ACME has dug the knife even deeper, I've just been listening to NEXX.
v[NEU] was fantastic, but I haven't been inclined to listen to them as of recent. While I also felt pretty involved w/ them, my preferences have shifted to Jun-era NEU and HeaRt.
Probably Dir en grey, tbh. I used to be super into them to the point where, as a teenager, I had saved thousands* of pictures of them (both individual members and as a band), as well as taking up way too much space on my pc with their pvs, music, and lives.
I still listen to their music when they release something new, and sometimes I go back to their old music I used to love so much. Overall, tho, I think I've moved on. I probably wouldn't admit that otherwise, and I'll more than likely deny ever saying any of this. 😂
* I'm probably exaggerating, it was probably more like hundreds but whatever.
