J-Pop Duo FEMM Team Up With LIZ on Sparkling ‘Do It Again': Watch the Video
Much like a video game, you can't always win at love—but there's always hope for a rematch.
On "Do It Again," Tokyo's electro-rap mannequin duo FEMM team up with Los Angeles pop princess LIZ for a sparkling, bittersweet ode to romantic do-overs with a playful nod to the princesses and damsels of retro '80s console games. Over a twinkling soundscape of sugary melodies, glitching beats and bright electronica, the three girls harmonize about broken hearts and second chances:
"I never meant to doubt you / But I've been so numb / I'm not myself without you / And I keep listening to that sad song / I don't feel a thing... / You played me right, from start to end / But I'd let you do it again / You loved me hard, you broke my heart / But I'd let you do it again..."
While it's a universal sentiment, the quirky video for the track is not nearly as down to earth as its subject matter. A colorful concoction of pastels, giant bows, turtles, and "fake 3D" effects, the clip is pure Tokyo eye candy—and it's the sweetest thing.
"Do It Again" featuring LIZ is available internationally on May 3.
