formula” is CICADA's second full-length album, which represents their major debut. Here, the Japanese pop band brush up their own ensemble with their well-known, mellow, urban song craft that resonates with the current trends while trying their hand at adventurous approach that incorporate new styles like trap. The result is a unique, irreplaceable character. Leavened with intricate percussion, the languid "Yureru Yubisaki (meaning Trembling Finger Tips)" is such a beautifully-wrought number. Despite such intricacy, “formula” never loses its pop sensibility, a stunning testament to the band’s creative knack.
