BLVCKBERRY

Despite being a new band that just celebrated their first anniversary, BLVCKBERRY has achieved a phenomenal success and sold out all of the tickets for their debut concert within just three minutes. In this interview, the band talked about the pressure they felt to sell out their debut show, their production process, and being an idol group. Despite this huge success they experienced so early, they are determined to work harder and harder to become a global band. I cannot wait to see the music they will offer and the many great achievements they will have in the future.

breakin’holiday

All members have been in the music business for a long time but started at zero when they established breakin’holiday. Reading how open-minded and motivated they are made a great impression on me. One member espically surprised me with his random hilarious answers.

It’s impressive to see how much this solo project has grown over time and how much thought was put into this unique concept. You can also see that he really treasures his fans and is interested in going abroad as well.

G.L.A.M.S

If the fact that G.L.A.M.S. was one of the first Japanese artists to go overseas after the pandemic started doesn’t already prove how much Mikaru and his members love to play overseas and treasure their fans all over the world, our interview with Mikaru will definitely do so. I had a blast reading his enthusiastic replies regarding G.L.A.M.S’ European tour this year and his expectations for the band’s very first gig in the USA. It was also nice that he made it very clear how much he values his time with his fans during events, and that he gave us a glimpse into his song composition and art creation process, as well as his private life (hobbies). I am sure it is just a matter of time until G.L.A.M.S will decide to play overseas again, so definitely check them out!

GOTCHAROCKA

Releasing their 10th single the year of their 10th anniversary without even noticing it is typical of GOTCHAROCKA, just like finding an original name for all the instrumental versions of their songs. The band show us their love for language by adding words in several foreign languages within their lyrics and creating neologisms in Japanese. They’re definitely a band you have to check out for their cheerful music!

LM.C

The name LM.C might evoke a lot of nostalgic feelings for a lot of (Visual kei/Japanese music) fans, but let us tell you: maya (vo.) and Aiji (gt.) are still very much active. After debuting almost 15 years ago, the duo has challenged itself to various genres of music, from pop-punk to pop-rock, electro-pop, rap-rock, and even hard-rock, and the tour final of their “KAIBUTSUEN” tour showed us that they have indeed become just as changeable as chameleons. Moreover, maya (vo.) singing songs together with fans for the first time after 3 years of the pandemic showed us how deeply connected the duo is to their fans. Make sure to check out our live report and give their latest album “KAIBUTSUEN” a listen. I am excited to see which side of them the duo will show us next.

MATENROU OPERA

Matenrou Opera is one of the few bands that has remained active no matter the obstacles in their way. It’s been quite a few years since they’ve been overseas for concerts, but they still remembered how those concerts felt! I haven’t seen any English interviews from them recently, so I was really excited to share the interview with the overseas fandom.

Rides In ReVellion

It was nice to hear their thoughts about their own music and concerts, but they also answered some personal questions which helps in looking beyond them as musicians and see their personal characteristics. Not only do they seem to be fun at concerts but also fun people to hang around with as friends.

SPLENDID GOD GIRAFFE

Just like their unique name, SPLENDID GOD GIRAFFE has a unique sound and a brand new atmosphere that is exactly what’s been lacking within the scene’s new wave. In my opinion, the relatioship of trust and closeness they displayed in this interview is not only lovely to read, but really important for a band’s growth as well. Last but not least I want to point out how amazing it is to see that they value their overseas fans so much! They actually consider the fans’ situations after the pandemic when choosing their next live perfomance´s format! It just goes to show how important each one of us is for the trio.

THE MICRO HEAD 4N’S

Since all of them have already been part of the music scene for a long time – whether in this band or in other bands before – it’s interesting to read about how things have developed for them or the music scene. It’s also nice to hear about their various projects as THE MICRO HEAD 4N’S, because bands can add a nice additional touch to their music this way by experimenting with different concepts.
