mihimaru GT’s 20th single, entitled Switch, was released on 06.17.09. The B-side is a cover of the JUDY AND MARY song of the same name. Switch will be used as the official theme for the World Table Tennis Tournament. It was also used as an AEON CM song.

mihimaru GT brings a upbeat free atmosphere on Switch. The song starts off with a happy and summery instrumental with some awesome vocals from Hiroko to support it. It was surprising to hear her deliver a rap section but the cute energy to it really shines and reflects the freeing feeling of the song. Miyake’s rap section features the expected coolness that will make the listener really get into it. Switch is the best song that the two have released and definitely fits the season well.

Over Drive is a nice pop track but the problem with it is that the instrumentation sounds a little empty so the listener’s interest sort of drifts from the song. It’s not bad but not the most capturing of songs.

In order to promote the single, a PV for Switch was made. It features the duo in front of a blue background just singing or rapping while there are other figures in colorful outfits interacting with a flying gold ball. It’s pretty nice visually and really shows the energy of the song.

Single Ranking: A –

mihimaru GT really shined with this single. Switch is their best song yet and definitely one that fits this summer with an energy unlike any other. It’s a really strong song and definitely one to dance along with.
