Song Of The Day: Vanilla Beans – NicolaPosted by Allen Huang
Song of the Day is back! Since JK Pop is tonight, I’m pretty much swimming in the stuff right now. Here’s one for a sunny day, from J-Pop group Vanilla Beans. “Nicola” was their first single as a duo, and draws from Pizzacato Five-type Shibuya-Kei. If you watch any of their videos, you’ll notice that the duo love skewering idol culture and aren’t without a dry sense of humor. Also check out their cover of MGMT’s “Kids”, which, like most things exported to Japan, tastes slightly different.
