Music video: FEMM throw their own wigs back into the 90s with "Sabishii nettaigyo"

FEMM's latest single is a cover of Wink's 1989 classic "Sabishii nettaigyo". They didn't only cover the song, but recreated the whole damn video; From the outfits down to the dance routines. In a nice twist however, they put an 90s stamp on the song which manages to give it a kick and a vibe that makes it fit within the soundscape of radio today. The original is still my preferred version, because I stan for 80s pop and I can imagine a life where Namie Amuro and the Super monkeys had released it. But this is still a bop and the girls look great in the video. Their deadass-ness suits the 80s and 90s to a tee.


This is what Beni should have been on with her floptastic Covers the city album. A bitch needs to take notes.

"Sabishii nettaigyo" is taken from FEMM's second studio album 80s / 90s J-Pop revival which is a cover album. The album title pretty much does what it says on the tin.

"Sabishii nettaigyo" however is not indicative of how ever…
