Hyper Gal (Japan)

Springing from Osaka, Japan’s cultural center and historical heart, comes HYPER GAL, a two-piece band consisting of visual artist Koharu Ishida on vocals and noise artist Kurumi Kadoya on drums. The minimalist duo make maximum impact – stripping music down beyond the bare essentials, to create shimmering, no wave pop from blastbeat drums, glittery keyboard loops and ethereal bubblegum vocals – laced with velvet and firecrackers.

HYPER GAL is at work on their third album. In the lead-up to its release, SKiN GRAFT will indoctrinate first-time listeners by making the band’s revolutionary second album, ‘Pure’, available outside of Japan. A compact disc edition will be released next February. Both it and a digital download version are


***Hyper Gal – Pure

 

Repress Release Date: 16th February 2024

Genre: No Wave, Punk, Rap, Noise-Pop, Avant-garde, lo-fi.

For Fans of: Melt Banana, Ike Yard

 

“HYPER GAL says of the signing, “It has been almost five years since HYPER GAL started its activities in Japan. These years have been very exciting. We’ve been fans of so many SKiN GRAFT artists… AIDS Wolf, Melt-Banana, Arab On Radar… The upcoming releases from SKiN GRAFT are a great opportunity to reach new audiences. We hope HYPER GAL will be a new musical experience for you. See you soon!”

SOME PRESS QUOTES:

“HYPER GAL inexplicably blend rap and pop vocals with hard, industrial textured beats (reminiscent of no wave acts such as Ike Yard) with the avant-garde tension of bands like The Locust and Melt-Banana” – AVE | CORNER PRINTING

“There is melencholy too. While vocalist Koharu rests her hand on the microphone stand, the pure sound of the arpeggios and melodies Kurumi plays on the cheap synths placed on top of her toms overwhelms… HYPER GAL is the beauty of chaos” – NOTE / Yukiyoshi Sasa

The noise that HYPER GAL makes is not just noise. It has
a fairy tale quality that allows you to warp to another world.
You are taken away by the fusion of the happy, sparkling-yet-druggy synth (that sounds like something you’d hear in a game center), the lo-fi drums, and the noise that keeps playing in the background…
It’s a sound that comes from a different place than any other music I’ve ever heard. I think many people think of HYPER GAL as punk music, and I believe that’s one of the correct answers. Personally, I feel that HYPER GAL’s musicality and character also blends in with the scene of artists such as Enjoy, Cowgirl Clue, Kumo 99 and The Hellp. There’s a truly exquisite balance between the languid elements, the floating and lo-fi feel of the sound textures and the sparkling, punkish performances that combine explosive power and lethargy. There is no pinpointing this band. The freedom they have carved out for themselves is both courageous and beautiful – and their most attractive feature” – TO’MORROW MUSIC

A truly unique, perplexing duo. Wouldn’t it be nice if things like
this became more commonplace in the world? – VELVET ANTS

“- Wow!” – SENSA
