“Choose One” by PSYCHIC FEVER
“P.C.F.” is a self-titled abbreviation of the group name. The focus single titled “Choose One” is a sensitive blend of hip-hop, melodic hardcore and punk, combined together into an energetic track with West Coast vibes.
Released digitally on June 27, 2022, “Choose One” is a statement of determination for all the seven PSYCHIC FEVER members to unite as one and aim for number 1 on the Billboard Global 200 as well as a desire to support listeners in their own personal journey. This encouraged them to choose one from their own goals and dreams.
“Choose One” was performed for the first time at the final round of the largest ever LDH audition event “iCON Z ~Dreams For Children~“, which was held at Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan on May 21, 2022. Since then, the song has already been gathering attention on social media.
PSYCHIC FEVER has undergone much training and growth and now, its seven members are confident to present “Choose One” to every one. Directed by Keita Nakae, the accompanying music video for the some is now available on YouTube.
Other singles in “P.C.F.” includes previously released tracks before the band’s debut such as “Hotline“, “Best for You“, “Tokyo Spiral” and “Snow Candy“. The album also includes new singles including “Bitter Sweet“, a sweet JPOP style topline with R&B flair on top of a hard beat and bassline, adding a new layer of allure.
Also in “P.C.F.” is “Spark It Up“, a single that is infused with PSYCHIC FEVER’s strong desire to reach further than Japan and become global artists. Capturing the essence of a hot, tropical night, in tandem with a solid Moombahton beat, it is a high-energy song that brings hype and addictive sound that packs a punch and showcases each member’s unique style.
