  • FEMM Releases Music Video for ‘Crystal Ball’ from New EP ‘THE SIX’

    29.August.2022 | MUSIC

    Mannequin rap duo FEMM released a music video for the song Crystal Ball from their new EP THE SIX, released on August 17.

     

    This song is a powerful ballad produced by Danny L. Harle, a pioneer of hyper-pop who has worked with Rina Sawayama and other artists, and John Ryan, who has provided many songs for One Direction, Maroon 5, and more. FEMM added some particularly poignant lyrics to the track, including the line “take the unexplored path (not the one shown to you by someone else) illuminated by the light you emit, even if it is still weak.”

     

    Crystal Ball (Music Video) on YouTube:

    https://youtu.be/CYh9RUBiQyI

     

    The music video was produced in collaboration with majotae, a Japanese fabric brand that uses hemp, a sustainable material that has become popular worldwide in recent years. The costumes were based on origami and were designed by Tomomi Ono, a fashion designer who worked for Maison Martin Margiela in Paris and has been developing a “brand without a name” since 2009. The video was directed by 2nd Function, which has provided creations for global fashion brands like GUCCI.

     

    The music video’s color palette is reminiscent of Japan, combining plenty of white and red objects. The video aims to inspire viewers to remember and accept the past while moving ever forward, so be sure to give it a watch. 

  • FEMM Releases Music Video for ‘THE SIX,’ Theme Song for MBS Drama Series

    19.August.2022 | MUSIC

    Since their debut in 2014, the female mannequin rap duo FEMM has continued to wow audiences with its avant-garde approach to music. The two have been active mainly in the United States and Europe.

     

    Since their debut, the duo has continued to release unique new music. The main track from their latest album Tokyo Ex Machina, We Got Each Other, managed to chart for 12 consecutive weeks on the major U.S. radio chart MEDIABASE/Activator Chart.

     

    FEMM’s new track THE SIX has been chosen as the theme song for the MBS/TBS drama series Ikinokotta 6-nin ni Yoru to, which is currently airing in Japan. 

     

    The aggressive and avant-garde song may be a first for a Japanese drama theme song. With a sound typical of FEMM, the track was written by the duo themselves after receiving an offer from the drama’s director Ken Ninomiya. The series follows survivors of a zombie apocalypse, and in response, FEMM’s song stresses the importance of staying true to oneself in any situation, no matter how terrifying. 

     

     

    Director Ken Ninomiya gave the following comments about the song.

     

    – – – – –

     

    FEMM’s music gives off this innate cheerfulness and a mischievousness that I thought would be perfect for the drama’s theme song, so as a fan and creator myself, I had to make an offer. 

     

    I asked that the song be a celebration of the six main characters as they grow and reforge who they are day after day. 

     

    And thus, THE SIX was born. The song, which calls out the characters’ names over and over, not only embodies their strength and their desire for a brighter future, but also encapsulates the drama in a tangible way. (More on that later.)

     

    I’m happy to be able to tell this story along with this incredible song.

     

    – – – – –

     

    The song is also the title of FEMM’s upcoming EP THE SIX, and a music video has been released. The video was shot in an industrial area by the sea in Chiba Prefecture, the same setting as the drama. Described as a “summer dystopian movie,” it has an unusually sad storyline created by FEMM and features the two dressed as zombies. The choreography was created by GENDAI, who leads the popular dance team KUROKO.

     

    Be sure to listen to THE SIX and check out the drama series if you can!

  • FEMM Releases Tokyo-Based Cyberpunk Music Video for ‘Crawl Away’

    10.August.2022 | MUSIC

    The mannequin rap duo FEMM has just returned from an expansive European tour through England, Germany, and France.

     

    The main track from their latest album Tokyo Ex Machina, We Got Each Other, managed to chart for 12 consecutive weeks on the major U.S. radio chart MEDIABASE/Activator Chart, and in September, the two will return to Europe to perform in Spain.

     

    The music video for their song Crawl Away, from their upcoming mini-album THE SIX, has been unveiled. The album will be released on August 17, 202.

     

    Crawl Away (Music Video):

    https://youtu.be/4-OuL_OKho0

     

    FEMM has always had cyberpunk as a theme for its visuals, and this time, the duo decided to collaborate with UK-based concept artist Max Prentis to kick up the retro-futuristic feel. The video is both set in a faraway time and nostalgic, bringing together 80s melodies and flashy visuals of a distant Tokyo.

     

    As the duo continues their activities in Europe and the United States, their new song THE SIX is being used as the opening song for the MBS/TBS drama Ikinokotta 6-nin ni Yoru to, which has just begun airing.

  • FEMM Releases Music Video for ‘Falling For A Lullaby,’ Announces European Tour Dates

    07.July.2022 | MUSIC

    Japanese electronic dance duo FEMM continues to impress. While still relatively unknown in Japan, the main track from their latest album Tokyo Ex Machina, We Got Each Other, managed to chart for 12 consecutive weeks on the major U.S. radio chart MEDIABASE/Activator Chart, rising as high as #48 as of June 22, 2022. 

     

    The song Fxxk Boyz Get Money, ranked in the Top 10 on Billboard’s World Albums chart and was also selected as the Best Indies Album at HMV in the U.K. The girls have continued to become popular in the U.S. in Europe. 

     

    The pandemic forced the duo to cancel all festival appearances in the U.S. and Europe. Their recent album Tokyo Ex Machina took over five years to complete.

     

    The music video for Falling For A Lullaby is finally here featuring Jenna Andrews, who previously worked with BTS on the video for Butter. Inspired by the current cyberpunk craze, this song is worth a few dozen listens at a minimum.

     

    Falling For A Lullaby(Music Video)

    In terms of visuals, FEMM has received high acclaim from Western media outlets such as Vice, Noisey, and DAZED. The new video was made along with BRDG, a close friend with many fans around the world, and YAMACHANG, one of the best laser artists in Japan. The work stands out for its incredible use of light and color.
