Johnny’s subgroup Tegomass, of Tegoshi Yuya and Masuda Takahisa from NEWS, will be releasing their third single “AiAiGasa” on June 18. The title song is being used as the ending song for the Neo Angelique Abyss anime.

Tegomass have lovely, pleasant voices – they are currently the two best singers in NEWS and I personally consider Tegoshi one of the best singers in all of Johnny’s. Together, their voices match and harmonize pleasantly – some of their best songs are their ballads.

“AiAiGasa” is one of these amazing ballads. The song, literally translated as “Love Umbrella”, is about finding love on a rainy day, as well as incorporating the Japanese idea of the love umbrella bringing couples together (like the picture on the regular edition single cover). The song, like many of their other songs, has synth backings, but somehow avoids sounding like a 90’s throwback because the focus is on the vocals here. It’s soft, easygoing, and another great release by Tegomass.

In the video, Tegoshi and Massu are rain angels who sit upon ladders wearing frills, using showerheads to rain upon little kindergarteners to get them to love each other. Then they alternate singing among glittery crystal bead curtains and playfully hosing each other down. Sounds cheesy? It is. But it is definitely higher budget than their previous video, so I think they actually pull it off rather cutely.

And on a personal level, Tego is looking so so good even with that horrid hair color, I can almost forgive him for going blond. I – here, take pretty looking Tego shots. (Those cameramen sure know what I want.)

The limited edition contains a DVD, while the regular edition has a bonus track “Boku no Cinderella.”
