Introducing… ATARASHII GAKKO!
Made up of kawaii-but-fierce Mizyu, wildcard Suzuka, graceful Kanon, and funky Rin, outlandish quartet ATARASHII GAKKO! represent a new generation of Japanese youth – one who embrace both personal expression, and push against the traditional boundaries set by society, a little bit at a time.
With their dizzying sound, incorporating elements of pop, jazz, hip-hop and rock, the groups progressive and forwarding-thinking performance style sees them bring their music to life on stage, with a modern day sense of punk energy and girl power, whilst performing frantic dance moves, choreographed by the four members themselves.
Having already released two electrifying albums, 2018’s Maenarawanai and 2019’s Wakage Gaitaru, the group are now fully focused on the future, and ready to dominate the world of pop further in 2022!
