First of all, this mix of upbeat pop and out of control electro-punk. It’s absolutely impressive, especially because the song was composed by none other than 後藤まりこ (Gotō Mariko), former member of the punk jazz band ミドリ (Midori) and now producing her own music as DJ後藤まりこ (you might want to check out her first album). qppo‘s members are probably as crazy as her, being able to keep up with this bizarre style: you’ll get a lot of cute and catchy vocals, but also some ear-piercing screams. And of course, the result is just awesome.
What makes the group even more unusual is that it’s a gender-mixed unit. Or at least it should be, but since Maki-chan is actually a six years old who wants to be a cute girl, let’s believe in them and call it an all-female group. Just don’t be too surprised if you hear a deeper — but still very cute! — voice in some of their songs.
I may be biased towards Gotō Mariko, as I still remember the moment I discovered Midori during my adolescence; nonetheless, I believe that qppo is a pretty solid group and this song simply proved it.
