Kyary Pamyu Pamyu & Mondai Girl

Well, we haven’t posted a new Kyary video for quite a while. Whaddaya think?

I think the music’s boring, but the visuals reach acceptable levels of Kyaryan kraziness. Lyrics here at kashigasa. The song title means “problem girl” or “problematic girl.” A longer version of the video is coming out soon. This is Kyary’s first song to be used for a TV drama, the drama being “Mondai no Aru Restaurant” (the restaurant with problems).


Capsule & Control

Can you guess which is the name of the song and which is the name of the band?

The band belongs to Yasutaka Nakata, who also produces and writes for Perfume and Kyary Pamyu Pamyu. It’s really striking how the “techno” music of each singer/group has a completely distinctive texture, though it’s all written by the same guy. Nakata’s the one who slowly turned me around on the techno genre, where instead of headache-inducing club music I could start to see it as a world of unlimited and mostly untapped possibility.
