When you think of all things Pink, a sound that fuses the likings of Basement Jaxx, the Gorillaz, CSS, and Tom Tom Club, with lyrics focused on “women empowerment” and re-defining the definition of “kawaii” or cute in Japanese, you think of CHAI.
Formed in 2012, in the Nagoya region of Japan, identical twins Mana (voc/keys) and Kana (gt./cho.) would ask fellow high school classmate, Yuna (dr./cho.), and later Yuki (ba./cho.), a college acquaintance, to join what we now know as CHAI. Both independent releases, “Hottaraka Series” which translates to “irresponsible series”, was the title of CHAI’s 1st EP released in December of 2016, soon followed by “Homegoro Series”, their 2nd EP, released in April of the following year.
Pristine Babe are a new name but a classic sound.
London based, Italian heart.
80s bubblegum pop put through the wrangler, the duo match art-school sass to effervescent melody.
With just one single to their name Pristine Babe have already caused a stir in the capital, and it's little wonder given that debut single 'Moonlight' is quite the seductive charmer.
