It's crazy on how many plays she's gotten with just two songs. I remember I was the one to create her page, filling out her bio, putting up her first photo, and even leaving her first shoutbox comment. And now her shoutbox is never inactive! I'm just butthurt that the top similar artists are all k-pop, I mean I like k-pop and all but she's not similar to them. capsule's not even there when Nakata is her producer, smh. BUT KEEP ON SLAYIN' KYARY!

Either of the following:
- Technopop (term for Japanese-language electropop)
- J-electro (Japanese electro -- electro is different from electropop)

Actually, I still stick with the old Wikipedia definition of electropop, since they now merged electropop into "synthpop". And how come they didn't know 'bout a motorcycle motor-sounding electropop called "motorpop"?

Electropop (also called technopop) is a pop-orientated form of electronic music primarily consisting the use of synthesizers. The genre has seen a revival of popularity and influence since the late 2000s. "Electropop" is the short form of "electronic pop". The term was used primarily during the 1980s to describe a form of synthpop characterized by an emphasized electronic sound — often described as cold and robotic — and by minimal arrangements. This was mainly due to the limitations of the analog synthesizers and recording techniques used at the time, but has since become a stylistic choice. Electropop laid the groundwork for a mass market in chart-oriented synthpop. Electropop songs are pop songs at heart, often with simple, catchy hooks and dance beats, but differing from those of electronic dance music genres which electropop helped to inspire — techno, house, electroclash, etc. — in that songwriting is emphasized over simple danceability.

Synthpop is a genre of music in which the synthesizer is the dominant musical instrument. It originated as part of the New Wave movement of the late-1970s to the mid-1980s, and it has continued to exist and develop. While most current popular music in the industrialized world is realized via electronic instruments, synthpop has its own stylistic tendencies which differentiate it from other music produced by the same means. These include the exploitation of artificiality (i.e., the synthesis of sounds from waveforms) where the synthesizers are not used to imitate acoustic instruments, the use of mechanical sounding rhythms, vocal arrangements as a counterpoint to the artificiality of the instruments, and ostinato patterns as an effect. Synthpop song structures are generally similar to those of other popular music.

She pre-released "Jelly" as a digital single from her upcoming mini.

Oh Kyary!! ; u ; I remember being on vacation, hearing about Nakata producing her and being excited. I never imagined when I returned that she'd be so big. Even if she wasn't big I'd still be stanning her all because she's a part of the contemode family. It's a bit of a shame though, since I just wish that people could find out more about contemode/Nakata other artists: capsule (when they were Shibuya-kei and electro), Perfume and MEG (though she might not be part of it anymore).
bunnyshoxx 11th-Aug-2011 10:05 pm (UTC)
I have a feeling she's gonna rank on the top 5 when the EP comes out.
I don't like PONPONPON but anything that will wash the hallyu away is fine with me!
showyoursmile 11th-Aug-2011 10:48 pm (UTC)
PONPONPON is so addictive. I'm definitely not over it yet. xD Congrats to Kyary!
eishastan 12th-Aug-2011 02:07 pm (UTC)
I think we all know she became viral for the wrong reasons.. people is basically making fun of her all around the world, so i don't see how people can be happy about this...

The music video is amazing, but the song... Not so much.
