Formed in 2014, Maison Book Girl are comprised of vocalists Aoi Yagawa, Yui Inoue, Rin Wada, and founding member Megumi Coshoji. They are part of the 'new-age' wave of J-Pop groups sweeping Japanese culture, creating slick, smart, contemporary pop music,
With musician and producer Kenta Sakurai as their core songwriter, producer and music director, they take influences from Scandinavian dream-pop, Japanese classical music, modern ambient minimalist, chiptune and video game soundtracks, it’s a multicultural melting pot of ideas, textures and soundscapes that’s typically upbeat and sugar-coated, but also ventures to the more experimental corners of pop that the likes of Sigrid, Christine & The Queens and St Vin...cent are toying with to great success.
Their debut release, 'Bath Room', was released in Japan in September 2015 to critical and public acclaim. The group released their major label debut album 'Image' in 2017 supported by their first Japanese headline tour with a show at the 2.5k capacity Zepp Divercity in Tokyo.
Maison Book Girl will have their first non-Japanese release on Read The Air Records. ‘Karma’ will be released on limited edition blue 7" vinyl in May 2018. youtu.be/uzM1sKgk43E
Read The Air Records is a collaboration between Alcopop! Records in the UK and Japanese independent label Vinyl Junkie. With a growing appetite for Japanese music from the UK audience, the aim for the new imprint is to help share some of the best artists emerging from the Japanese scene.
Local support from rowdy indie rockers Ghosts of Dead Airplanes who just released their new EP ‘The Deritend Book of the Dead’
