We’re proud to be showcasing a hot Japanese act making their first ever appearance in the UK at this summer’s HYPER JAPAN festival. REOL are a thrilling trio who offer a true treat for the senses. Singer-songwriter Reol supplies unique music, vocals and lyrics, including funky rapping, while her collaborator Giga creates the scintillating musical accompaniment, replete with electronic beats and Vocaloid work. The third member of the group, Okiku, produces and directs the stunning videos that accompany their songs to complete the audio-visual experience.
All three members of the group had illustrious solo careers before joining together to create REOL and release their debut album, Sigma (∑) in October last year. Reol and Giga had previously collaborated frequently, and even released an album together in 2014. At the same time, they each pursued solo careers, with Reol’s debut solo album, Gokusaishiki, emerging in 2015 and making her the fourth-ranked debut artist on the Oricon chart that year. The trio then formed officially in March 2016 and the rest, as they say, is history!
