So. It’s Sunday. There are no hard-and-fast rules around what does and does not constitute “easy” when it comes to Sundays, though that designation has in the past extended to such things as HAMIDASYSTEM and random H!P things and I think AH* that one time. The point is, I usually like to use Sunday as a time to celebrate cool, interesting, homi-ish idol things that maybe don’t have the pedal all the way down to the metal.
Today, arguably my new favorite thing this week, wyenra:
News of this unit’s creation and inauguration has been randomly, one might even say ordained-ly, been kicking around Twitter and my dang inbox for a couple of weeks, but here they are, for real, in the digital flesh. Completely self-produced, self-managed, etc. They’re still putting together their first lives, but they’re also putting together really nice music with a really well-done MV. Also, two of the members are sisters, I think.

You’ll note a high degree of sophistication for idols, period, let alone self-produced, self-started idols that have been officially on the case for two whole weeks. Experience is one thing, but I genuinely wonder if the girls who decide to kick off these projects just plain do more homework first, and/or are able to leverage more financial resources; I’m not saying that this is the case here, but just like that one band at your high school that inexplicably had brand new gear and professionally recorded CDs despite, you know, completely sucking at music, having connections (family) to financial assistance (parents’ cash) and possibly industry as well
(Jakob Dylan) can take you very far very quickly. Often without merit! But I think wyenra’s good enough at first glance to be given some applause and benefit of the doubt.
