I didn't see anything posted about this group and thought I would share. I just discovered them recently. They formed in 2015 and had their major label debut last year. The interesting thing is that they formed in the same music and dance school where Scandal started, Caless in Osaka.

Here is a brief clip about them and includes a short conversation with Scandal:

I think they're pretty decent. The lead singer's voice is pretty solid.

so, i'm going to introduce you guys to an awesome girl rock band.. and to make it more relatable, i'm going to tell you guys a story!!
(info about the band here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] )

hey, so about a month or two ago, i came across some random SCANDAL video on youtube. this video:

i was like "oh look, a new fresh professional band that looks up to SCANDAL. how cute!!"

and then, this

HOLY MOLY they are REAALLY good at doing that cover, even better than SCANDAL for their age (i mean, they are aged 16-18 in 2017!)

and so, i started to listen to their songs & other covers. they are super cool and have the feels. They are more to the cool side in their image and songs compared to SCANDAL, but they're doing it without trying too much. Just like SCANDAL is (more or less) naturally cute, they are naturally cool & rocky. At least that's how i see it.

without further ado, here are some highlights of that coolness and talent.




what do you think??
(i'm currently following them as a casual fan)

thinking about SCANDAL may cause extreme blushing, increasing heart beat rate, crazy actions, exhausted from jumping like a kid, unstoppable weird laughs, sudden excitement, and freaky things that you'll wish you had never done that

Well, if you've been watching Scandal on youtube, there's a big chance you've already seen them or at least heard about them. I like them and I wish they could make it big as what Scandal did. Surpassing their Senpai would be even greater. Though even if I'm saying this, I seldom listen to their songs I've downloaded on spotify. LOL. I still have like 200 + scandal songs that I listen to everyday that pretty much other songs from other artist that I like is on "Hiatus" mode. Lol.

That Perfume cover is really good. Quite prefer it to the original version, really. I'm listening to their album now, and I hope they grow popular. Their music is really good!

I found their videos on youtube and started to like them in the same day. Happy I also saved the link of their official channel.

I like these two for example:

Yes I enjoyed that and I am a big GIRLFRIEND fan myself Happy

I still remember how happy they were when they meet their Hero's SCANDAL.

But then we are all very happy every time we meet SCANDAL Happy

They admit they started as a SCANDAL clone but I think they are finding their own sound now and nobody can deny their talent.

No. They have not released the exact day yet of the concert. Only that AnimagiC will be held 31 July - 2 August in Mannheim. The website simply says, and I paraphrase "watch this space"

Ah, thanks, anyway it sad for me. I was hoping maybe close with SCANDAL tour dates. The difference is more than a month.

The final part of that interview with OTAQUEST is now available. A couple of interesting insights into life growing up as part of a band. Nagisa was no more than 15 years old when they moved from Osaka to Tokyo. Still at school and missed home.

The link posted in the original post (first one) doesn't work.

They're great! I really like their covers, got to them randomly through their cover of a 欅坂46 cover, so far have only listened to 「Figure」,「魅力とは?」(don't know the english name) and 「それだけ。」 (soredake) and I really dig them! 

each member is really a really great player on her own and that's really important in my opinion.
