Probably! But the Least Stable Project in Idol of Any Kind (aka GANG PARADE) just released two of the tracks from Barely Last onto Soundcloud, and, if you’ve been following the bizarre drama of the last couple of months at all, you’re probably at least somewhat curious as to what they sound like. Curious no more!
Yep, more new idols! Or, in this case, not so much new as new to us.
Meet Sola Sound (Twitter | Facebook!). Their online lifespan goes all the way back to March, and it looks like they debuted in May. Three members, doing kind of a PassCode Lite sound, with a little of the edgy kawaii presentation, and a website that looks a lot like NEVE SLIDE DOWN’s … holy shit, has We-Bstudio colonized?(no) Continue reading →
I should’ve seen this one coming: With the new group’s new first album Brand-new idol Society2 (yep!) coming out in a little over a month, BiS was going to be releasing something soon, and in this case it’s a whole mess of their classic songs re-recorded with the new members:
It wasn’t all that long ago that we first had a chance to look into Fumimi, part of the A-minor family that’s going through a bit of stuff these days, but all for the best in the end, I’m sure. Yesterday, she announced a pair of new songs that she’ll be unveiling live in October.
In true Daichi fashion, they’re up on Soundcloud with cool lyrics art:
A lot goes into a name, I feel. At Day Job, we take a lot about “brand promise,” that we create expectations in people and are basically duty-bound to deliver on those expectations, and a lot of that brand promise can be communicated just with a name.
So when you see idols called Aphrodite, I think that paints a bit of a picture (and not the Botticelli, you weirdos). What do we get?
That’s Aphrodite (Twitter). I’m not sure when their actual origin was, but I first came across them via Pure Idol Heart about a year ago and spent a lot of time listening through their Soundcloud to figure out this (at the time) neo-classical alt-EDM … it’s hard to describe, but you can see it if you go back to the origins.
Nowadays, though, they’re doing “dramatic rock” (yes, they are!) and are on a little bit of a tear, as you may have noticed that they’re on a lot of bills these days.
