BAND-MAID started out July in the year of 2013 and was officially formed with current five girls in August. BAND-MAID is the Japanese all girls rock band with five members who dress as maids. Unlike their cute and gothic concept of maids’ uniform, their play is very authentic and classic. They attract you not only by their appealing visuals but also their promising sound. Their music video “Thrill” hit 2 million views within just two weeks on Facebook and has surpassed over a million views since less than a year on YouTube.
Do As Infinity
Do As Infinity is a rock band consisting of Tomiko Van (Vocals) and Ryo Owatari (Guitar & Vocals).Before they made their debut in 1999, they had performed more than a 100 times in front of the Hachiko Statue at Shibuya. In the same year, they released their debut single ‘Tangerine Dream’ with avex trax on the 29th of September. Approaching their 18th anniversary since debut, they have expanded their reach beyond Japan to a worldwide scale.
Shiena fell in love with music in middle school, when she laid hands on her father’s old guitar. That interest expanded from not just guitar, but also into singing/songwriting. In 2014, she won the grand prize at the Flying Dog Audition (a popular singing contest). In 2015, her debut song, “Fubuki”, was the ending theme for the television anime “Fleet Girls Collection (KanColle)”, and was released as a single that same year. On March 15th, 2017, Shiena released her first full-length album, entitled “Break Your Fate”. This album features a rock sound that showcases Shiena’s evolving talents, and shows that she is leading Japan’s next generation of talented artists.
