1. Pride on Everyday
With sphere I’ve kind of gotten used to the songs they were releasing, but with Pride on Everyday it’s like they took their usual formula and just bombarded it with sugary cuteness! Add in that it feels like the girls are shouting the lyrics and it kind of just turned into this generic idol song which really made me frown. I’m just not really into this song for some reason.

The B-side (with the symbol hax) in my mind sounded like it was going to be 100x more cuter and I was almost correct. The vocals for this song are a bit higher pitched and there’s some trouble harmonizing but this song is kind of charming and cute in its own way. I’ve noticed that I haven’t heard the girls individually here (nor in the A-side really) and I’m kind of wanting solo lines. I will say the song’s arrangement kind of gives me H!P feels and I’m not sure if I like it or not.
Starting their 4th era together, sphere kicks things off on a low note with Pride on Everyday. I think for me, the single comes off as more idolly and less anison than their previous singles and the fact that solo lines were few and far apart here…it just felt off for the quartet. I will say the B-side stands out much better than Pride of Everyday, but not by much.
