TOP 10 IDOL MV – July 2021

TOP 10 IDOL MV - July 2021

July has been so hectic that I almost forgot I had to select the best MV’s of the month for this Top 10. This actually gave me a good chance to re-listen to some song I mistakenly discarded as just nice (don’t blame me please, I said I’ve been busy), so all’s well that ends well. Anyway, let’s see the ten videos I chose for last month.


10) くぴぽ (qppo) – 天国 (Tengoku)

For a song titled “Tengoku”, the music is indeed quite heavenly here. For this one, qppo went for an atmospheric future bass sound with ethereal vocals on top of it and the result is quite fascinating. Good job with the glitchy and colorful MV too.


9) バグMEME (BUG MEME) – It’s My Steelo

“It’s My Steelo” is a song we already knew from the time BUG MEME were still called SAVATLIME; it was actually my favorite one from that group, so I’m not complaining about it getting a (live) MV. I especially like the pre-chorus, which reminds me a lot of Western EDM/pop music.


8) Re:INCARNATION – Twinkle GIRL

Among the many oh-so-weird moments in the alternative idol scene, every now and then you may need a simple rock song for a change: that’s what Re:INCARNATION are here for, bringing their “Twinkle GIRL” song with them. No surprises, no unneeded bizarreness, just a plain rock song, and a nice one too.


7) ピュ―パ!! (Pupa!!) – Nichijo

Whether they do cheesy synth pop or more rock-ish stuff, Pupa!! always pull it off. This time, with “Nichijo”, the three girls went for a very enjoyable dream pop sound, featuring all the ethereal emotions usually conveyed by this genre. Maybe it’s not the most outstanding song from them, but at the same time the quality of their music is never too low.


6) さっきの女の子、(Sakki No Onnanoko) – が覚えてる青春 (Ga Oboe Teru Seishun)

Sakki No Onnanoko have been releasing this kind of anime-like MV’s for a while, with “Ga Oboe Teru Seishun” being the latest song getting one. If happy-sounding jazz-infused electro-pop is a style you would enjoy, you should definitely try them and starting from this one may be a good idea.


5) GO TO THE BEDS – Meaningless

Blending an electro-pop sound with intense rock guitars, GO TO THE BEDS‘ “Meaningless” is not half bad. The mix of genres is almost bizarre if you consider how different the verse sounds compared to the chorus, but it actually flows nicely. There are also some strange people dancing with them in the MV, making the music not so weird after all.


4) 始発待ちアンダーグラウンド (Shihatsu-Machi Underground) – ノスタルジア (Nostalgia)

Shihatsu-Machi Underground temporarily put their usual psychedelic music aside in favor of a more jazzy pop-oriented sound. I have to say that I didn’t expect this from them, but “Nostalgia” sounds pretty good nonetheless. The piano and bass combo with some brass and guitars here and there make a very refined yet slightly upbeat and easily enjoyable song.


3) #2i2 – FATE

For some reasong, I expected #2i2 to be a bit softer than this. I’ m not saying I don’t like them though, on the contrary I’m enjoying this pop-ish post-hardcore sound more than I thought. “FATE” has all it needs to be a perfect alt-idol song: emotional vocals (with harsh ones in the background), intense music, catchy synths and a random electro-pop part which doesn’t really belong here.


2) unknown – envy

unknown bring us a very atmospheric, ethereal and shoegaze-ish brand of rock with “Envy” with delicate synths and guitar notes supported by a relatively powerful rhythm section (that bass is almost too loud! …not that I’m complaining). The vocals are also on the graceful side, making the sound even more heavenly and emotional. The setting of the MV is also very cool and the choreography is interesting too.


1) 神使轟く、激情の如く。 (Shingeki) – 神奏曲:インフェルノ (Shinsō Kyoku: Inferno)

Differently from other groups, I always know what to expect from Shingeki, to some extent; except they always find some way to impress me. “Shinsō Kyoku: Inferno” is an incredibly intense song ranging from alternative metal to powerful metalcore with their usual quirks like 8-bit synths, emotional piano notes, lots of harsh vocals, rapped parts and — of course — a carchy chorus. They never fail to remind me why I love them so much.

TOP 10 IDOL MV – April 2021

TOP 10 IDOL MV - April 2021

After all this time, you should know what happens on this site at the beginning of a new month: yes, a new top 10 of the best MV. As it often happens, April gave us a lot of incredible idol music and videos, so let’s check them out.


10) どーぷちゃん (Dope-chan) – stargaze

The starry MV for the aptly titled “stargaze” gives a chance to get more of that electronic hip-hop sound by Dope-chan. Even if the song seems a quiet and a bit dark-sounding one, it finally explodes in a party-like tune towards the end, while also keeping that nocturnal atmosphere. Once again, nice job from this trio.


9) あまりりす (Amaryllis) – 群青シンセシス (Gunsei Synthesis)

The intensity of “群青シンセシス” (Gunsei Synthesis) by Amaryllis is something you can’t really ignore; really, how would you forget about the fast and powerful beat accompanied by a trance-like bass? And how about the some cute and catchy vocals on top of them? Fans of EDM-oriented idols will surely enjoy this one.


8) THE ORCHESTRA TOKYO – 東京パレード (Tokyo Parade)

You’d expect “東京パレード” (Tokyo Parade) to be a parade-like song… and that’s exactly waht it sounds like. The first MV by THE ORCHESTRA TOKYO brings us the five girls in suites singing over a marching band sound. It almost feels like some sort of Christmas commercial, except Santa is on holiday and sent his favorite idols in his place.


7) ミズシラズ (mzsrz) – ノイズキャンセリング (Noise Canceling)

In case you needed some more electro-pop idol music, mzsrz brought us their latest MV. Created with the help of Vocaloid producer DECO*27 “ノイズキャンセリング” (Noise Canceling) is a very high quality EDM-inspired song with a memorable hook and a really nice synth melody.


6) SAKA-SAMA – 抱えきれないわ (Kakae Kirenai Wa)

Introduced by some calming piano notes and quiet vocals, SAKA-SAMA‘s “抱えきれないわ” (Kakae Kirenai Wa) quickly turns into an experimental art pop song. Despite being a bit short, it contains a lot of interesting elements such as glitched noises, background reverberated vocals and a childish/playful tone throughouy the song. The video also features some nice shots, enhancing the artistic feel of the song.


5) 神使轟く、激情の如く。 (Shingeki) – BAD CAKE

Once again, Shingeki went mad with their genre-bending music. Besides the very colorful video which is already impressive by itself, “BAD CAKE” blends alternative metal intensity, hardcore elements, hip-hop beats and rapped vocals, a jazzy piano and a bit of catchiness in the chorus. Yes, the usual Shingeki.


4) デビタント (DEVITANT) – Drink out

The night atmosphere of “Drink out” made me fall in love with DEVITANT. Featuring some very nice bass lines and many hip-hop and R&B elements, the song is the perfect musical representation of going out at night in a big city; and the MV, of course, helps recreating that feel.


3) 誰もシラナイ。 (Daremo Shiranai.) – エンダー (Ender)

Although apparently they can’t stick to one genre, Daremo Shiranai. keep releasing very enjoyable songs and “エンダー” (Ender) may be one of their best ones. Made by a refined and yet intense form of post-rock, the music feels very emotional and follows the classic highs & lows formula of the genre, with calming piano notes suddenly leaving room to a powerful rock chorus.


2) TOKYOてふてふ (Tokyo Tefutefu) – cry more again

Considering how I wasn’t that much impressed by their previous videos, I wasn’t really expecting to put Tokyo Tefutefu among the top three MV’s of April. But “cry more again” immediately blew my preconceptions away, with a progressive-oriented and aggressive metal/rock sound featuring some twisted and a bit gloomy keyboard melodies, which also go totally nuts at some point.


1) KOTO – BACK TO THE UNIVERSE

The last MV from the legendary KOTO absolutely deserved to be at the top of this list. Through the synth/electro-pop sound of “BACK TO THE UNIVERSE”, she managed to turn a sci-fi Z-movie into a masterpiece and the bizarreness of both the song and the video are an awesome way to say goodbye to this incredible idol. We are definitely going to miss her, that’s for sure.

JINGLE HELL – Idol Christmas 2019

Christmas 2019
Christmas is that time of the year when idols turn into Santas, reindeers and elves; so it’s a good chance to put them all together in a photo gallery.

So Santa has come this year too, and he brought us… nothing. You have not been good children, after all; so no presents for you. But no worries! IdolOnChaos has got something for delinquents like you as well.

Here we go with a nice gallery of Christmas-themed idols: some we’ve already met on out website, some well-known girls and very underground ones too; there is something for all tastes! And even if you’re more into 2D stuff, don’t you worry: here’s something that will make you cry!

Well, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and I also want to thank you anyone who has visited this newborn website: the first three months have been full of good stuff, and I even managed to put a wintry theme before spring. Isn’t it a great achievement?

That’s all for now… See you soon on our pages!
