We've been hearing a lot about Mio Yamazaki lately here at A-to-J Connections and we recently reviewed their second full-length album, "choice". (That review can be found HERE.) Since we were becoming so familiar with their music we jumped at the chance for an interview and we're happy to share it with you all! Mio Yamazaki have a very interesting sound that we think can appeal to listeners here in the US and we hope this interview helps you fall in love with this amazing group!
Mio Yamazaki formed in 2013, but arguably their star rose in 2017 thanks to their breakout single "Noise" released last year. It was used as the opening theme for the fourth season of "Jigoku Shoujo/Hell Girl". Even though the name implies a solo performer, Mio Yamazaki is indeed a four-piece band whose name of course does come from the group's vocalist, Mio. Mio Yamazaki released their first full album, "anti-these", in 2016 and followed it up with "choice" last October. There music can also be heard in the application "Maji Yami Kanjojo" and a twitter drama series.
