As we all know, the Japanese pop idol industry is one of the most successful in the world, boasting innumerable fans across the globe. One recently-formed group of youngsters has already achieved astonishing success even for this world-class musical scene, wowing international audiences with their polished looks and addictive beats. Yes, we’re talking about the gorgeous girls of Tokyo Girls’ Style, who will be flying over to our HYPER JAPAN Festival for their UK debut!
Tokyo Girls’ Style (‘toukyou joshi ryuu’ in Japanese) is a five-member teenage girl group formed by record label Avex Trax. Its members Ayano Konishi, Miyu Yamabe, Hitomi Arai, Yuri Nakae and Mei Shoji were revealed to the public as recently as January 2010, and their debut single “Kirari” (sparkling) followed soon in May. The girls now have an astounding 4 albums and 15 singles under their belts, and have even re-recorded some of their popular tracks in Chinese for audiences in Hong Kong and Taiwan! They’ve performed in Singapore and the US, and currently hold the title for youngest female group to perform at the lofty Tokyo arena, Nippon Budokan. As if that wasn’t enough, in 2014 they even acted the starring roles in two feature films: “Count Five to Dream of You”, and “Kotodama – Spiritual Curse”. Quite the talented young ladies!
You can find their iTunes store here. Rock up to our HYPER Live area during the Saturday 1st session or on Sunday to see for yourself why this lively group of girls have captured hearts across Japan and beyond! You can also check out the video below:
