LADY BABY

Japan’s quirkiest new music group, are making their international debut at HYPER JAPAN Christmas Market 2015! The combination of Japanese idols and a harder, Metal sound is given an extra edge, both aurally and visually, by the addition of the most unique idol of all. This group smashes all borders, be they gender, nationality, culture, age, or values to create Japanese idols with a new feeling.

LADY BEARD is the “Kawaiicore” frontman of the group. With the slogan of “singing and dancing to destroy”, this former wrestler’s gutteral vocals give the band a little more bite when it comes to the harder side of their music, and his fame has shot skyward via the internet over the last few years. More traditional “kawaii” cuteness is provided by Kuromiya Rei and Kaneko Rie
