I’m a huge fan of K-On. So naturally, I started gravitating back to J-pop once I really started getting into the series. Along the way I heard about this group called SCANDAL. Apparently, they got together in high school and started jamming out. Then they started playing in clubs, and they…quite simply blew up. You might’ve heard their songs in Bleach and Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.
The group’s lineup consists for 4 girls, each with their own distinct roles.
Haruna Ono (小野春菜 Ono Haruna?) – lead vocals, secondary guitarist (she’s the face of the group and she has a cute overbite)
Mami Sasazaki (笹崎まみ Sasazaki Mami?) – lead guitarist, secondary vocals (OMG HER VOICE IS SO KAWAII AND CUTE AND I JUST WANT TO HUG HER)
Tomomi Ogawa (小川ともみ Ogawa Tomomi?) – bassist, secondary vocals (She plays bass, so she doesn’t really stand out as much, but she’s necessary.)
Rina Suzuki (鈴木理菜 Suzuki Rina?) – drummer, secondary vocals (GOOD GOD YOU ARE HOT WHY DON’T THEY FOCUS ON YOU MORE RINAAAAA)
I mentioned the K-On connection earlier in this entry. Imagine my surprise when I came across this on youtube.
SCANDAL AND SHOKO NAKAGAWA ARE SINGING “DON’T SAY LAZY”. YES.
Anyway, give this group a listen. You won’t regret it.
