Ladybaby ups ante on bizarre Japanese metal-pop


This is Ladybaby.

Sometimes, I think the Japanese are fucking with us… making videos and sending out press kits about bands that only exist in some opium induced session of “Let’s see if Americans will buy this ridiculous idea…”

But the reality is… Japanese people are crazy. See the guy in the middle there… that’s Ladybeard, who apparently already had a career in Japan and did those two girls a favor by joining up with them.

Crazy, huh?

The sound is the typical ultra-cute, overly peppy, lost in translation lyrics, backed by heavy metal riffs, sung by girls so cute, no one cares what they are talking about… and Ladybeard.

Dig it. Or don’t. Hard to tell what anyone is supposed to do with this…
