As I discussed throughout yesterday’s month-to-month Okay-pop round-up, the previous two months haven’t been precisely thrilling in the case of Okay-pop. So, I’ve taken the time to dive again into some previous J-pop favorites and uncover some artists I’d by no means listened to earlier than.
I are likely to embark on these deep J-pop dives every winter as Okay-pop’s launch slate slows down. This yr, I’ve been everywhere and wish to share a number of artists and songs which have been on everlasting rotation. I hope you’ll love them as a lot as I do!
Over the previous few months, I’ve been listening to Predia’s complete discography prefer it’s a brand new faith. I like their strong, dramatic sound and highly effective vocals. I simply can’t get sufficient of their music. I’m posting some favourite singles and b-sides so you may get a style.
Okay-pop followers of teams like GFriend and Dreamcatcher will certainly discover one thing to like right here!
This video is tremendous cringe with its bizarre sexualized water pouring, however the track completely slaps:
This one’s epic:
And that is bonkers-brilliant:
This one kinda out-Dreamcatchers Dreamcatcher:
PASSPO – Subsequent Flight
God, I really like this track. It’s the proper mix of 80’s rock and J-pop perspective. These melodies are perfection.
Lady Subsequent Door
I’m obsessive about Lady Subsequent Door’s massive synth sound. It seems like an up to date model of Each Little Factor’s late-90’s hits. The music simply brims with life and I’m having a blast exploring their tirelessly upbeat discography.
Genic – Supersonic
I’ll most likely write extra about Genic later as a result of I’m head over heels for this group, however for now I’ll share a incredible b-side that a whole lot of Okay-pop listeners would most likely get pleasure from:
FEMM – Whiplash
That is every kind of superior — the form of ballsy showstopper Avex pulls out of their again pocket now and again prefer it’s no massive deal in any respect.
Da-iCE – Time Is Life
I’ve adopted Da-iCE fairly carefully since debut, however I’m unsure how I missed this punchy pop b-side. It makes me want for summer season!
