CHIKA RADAR #26: coboreru

Chika Radar is back to bring us coboreru, a ska/punk idol quartet produced by DAICHI’s McDog works which recently debuted.

The idol scene may have been penalized by the ongoing pandemic, but some people can’t seem to be stopped even by a virus infecting the whole world. If you have been round the alt-idol thing for a while, you have probably heard of a guy named DAICHI: groups like Guso Drop, 2&, CHICKEN BLOW THE IDOL and Himegoto Zettaichi should ring a bell, right? His agency McDog works has more groups on its roster and every now and then a new one pops up. So let’s get to know coboreru.

The unit’s line-up features four members:

Last month, the group held their debut live show and released their first single, allowing us to listen to their music. So let’s start from the single “Flow In”.

Catchy vocal lines, upbeat guitar riffs and rhythm and a brass section: yes, that’s some really good ska/punk. The chorus and the brass melodies are especially great, blending the genre with the usual idolish sound we all love.

With their debut live, they showed us some more songs, mostly in the same vein and equally enjoyable; besides “Flow In”, I especially liked the final one “シンチエーション”. In any case, the four girls put on a great show; you can watch it too below, thanks to LIVE IDOL STAGE.

The groups produced by DAICHI are usually very nice and coboreru is no exception: judging from the few things they released, they will probably bring us som good idol music in the future.
