“…we can’t take our eyes off Perfume” – Vogue
“Churning gears of rhythm send melodies pinging about the mix until they’re borne upward on explosively cresting electronic waves. Cosmic Explorer may be sugary and exhilarating, but don’t overlook its ambitions – the nearly six-minute “Story” is a dance-pop mini-symphony.” – Rolling Stone
“It’s like if Grimes, Cocteau Twins, and Skrillex had a baby, or triplets, rather, who perform kick-ass choreography and catchy melodies” – Nylon
Multi-platinum selling electro J-pop girl group Perfume have announced the release of their new single, “Tokyo Girl,” set to hit on February 15, 2017. The track will be featured as the opening theme song of the new Japanese drama, Tokyo Tarareba Musume, premiering in January 2017. Perfume has made major strides this year. Their critically acclaimed album Cosmic Explorer was named one of Rolling Stone‘s Top 20 Pop Albums of 2016 and the girls recently wrapped up a massive tour, playing arenas in Japan before heading stateside to play sold out venues in LA, Chicago and San Francisco as well as two shows at Hammerstein Ballroom in Manhattan. Also recently announced, a special collaboration with UNIQLO, showcasing HEATTECH, one of the most loved items from UNIQLO LifeWear.
Formed in 2000, top electro-pop trio Perfume (a-chan, KASHIYUKA and NOCCHi) are one of the most influential girl groups in Japan, beloved for their futuristic concept and creative performances.
The group made their debut in 2005 and broke through with monster hit single “Polyrhythm” in 2007, taking techno-pop music and culture to the mainstream. Signing with Universal Music Japan in 2012, Perfume began their global activity, with sold-out tours around Asia and later in Britain, Europe and the United States. Their first album with Universal, 2013’s LEVEL3, became their 5th consecutive No. 1 album in Japan, breaking a domestic record. After becoming the No. 3 most-tweeted about artist at SXSW 2015 with their futuristic performance, they released COSMIC EXPLORER in 2016, which reached No. 1 on the iTunes Electronic Album chart in 11 countries including the US, Canada and Mexico.
