Enigmatic dream pop idols ········· (or Dots) are one of the most experimental idol groups out there. Currently on the cusp of releasing a 70-minute song, they just dropped this MV which is probably the least absurd thing they've ever done.
Clef Leaf is the second group to debut under NIPPON Columbia’s Label the Garden project. Although they are in many ways following in the footsteps of their predecessor Flower Notes, the group is by no means a copy of the former. Each member of this five-member group has a very unique personality. Izumi Kamiya (20), known as Izumin, is a self-described “unfunny girl from Kansai” who attaches herself at the hip to those she calls friends. Nana Yukishige (19), known as Hachi, is a goofy girl who seems to live in her own world most of the time. Kanami Ihara (17), known as Kanamin, is the most down to earth member of the group and loves to dance. Kana Itabashi (20), known as Kanana, is a girl with a lot of energy and an obsession with using the English alphabet in her speech. Miyabi Sakashita (15), known by her first name, is a girl who is more mature than her age in many ways and yet loves to talk your ear off like your average teenager. Together, the girls become a group who may be hard to control but will never bore you.
Synthpop-punk-throwback idol supergroup (feel free to suggest more buzzwords) BILLIE IDLE is set to return once again with their forthcoming single My Way, to be released August 23rd. Until then, we've been blessed with this new MV for the lovely title track. It's a simple video that does a great job of exemplifying each member's personality, and what else could you want from a BILLIE IDLE video? Highlights include Momo's surprisingly standout vocals, Nozomi being her usual self, and FSU doing whatever it is she's doing. Watch the video below.
