So there's this trend coming up of bringing extreme music into Japanese Idol Culture, first was Babymetal, then Ladybeard (actually hilarious), and now, an atonal noise / shoegaze band of Idols. They don't play any instruments. They sing, but since there's seven girls singing, not everybody only sings a short line here or there. Other than that, they're just dancers and abstract performing artists.

Here's a link of their "art":

Other than this, they've produced an EP and an album, both of which only consisting of about three songs. The album, much longer, contains 45 minutes or so of the blandest noise I've ever heard. The songs are forgettable and the raw noise after that is too long, and too lackluster.

I feel like everybody's trying to capitalize on the lesser known nowadays. There are basically no safe havens left.

That's it. Shoegaze is dead.

Their "album," for reference:
