New Ladybaby single, video

2017-04-20 by Philip Whitehead | 12 Comments
The Idol Formerly Known As LADYBABY (the official new name of the band) have released a new maxi-single entitled "Pelo" (Japanese onomatopoeia for licking). The single will be their first to see official release in the West after the duo signed to UK base label JPU Records, which specialises in distributing Japanese artists and includes among its roster Band-Maid, Aldious, the GazettE and Crystal Lake among others.
Special edition bundles include t-shirts and a signed poster. It is currently not known whether it will see distribution in North America.

I think they're still trying to figure out their direction post-Ladybeard. They want to try to do something that won't just keep drawing comparisons to Babymetal but haven't quite found the right sound yet.

I would ask a mod to rename the band on Sput but it's a very long name and they tend to keep calling themselves as Ladybaby for short anyway. So as long as the full name is in the bio it should be OK.

I agree so hard

however that new track ladybaby blue, is one of the only new ones to seem to work kinda well


that name thing is so stupid as well, should've just stayed ladybaby or completely changed the name

Yeah I think if they stay together for more than just a few years they'll probably have a big rebrand at some point. The agency they're signed to probably wants to milk the Ladybaby thing for as long as possible though.

it'd be interesting to see where they go if they do manage to stick around that long

i think they do have some talent and imo their combined vocals are better than babymetals

seems like that is the standard practice for idol groups lol

yeah, it should be Ladybaby with Ladybeard and something else in the style of Ladybaby Blue. Awkward how they earned fame with ladybeard and then got rid of him or he left and they're trying to ride out that fame. it really isn't the same.

it was time for new contract negations and they were straight fuckin Ladybeard so he had no choice but to leave

and then they decided to ride the fame in the worst way possible instead of making something good out of it

The b-side Lady Baby Blue definitely seems a lot more stripped back. Might be a new direction to go in or something that could diversify future albums. Although the comments of that video are full of people suggesting the two girls are in a relationship and idk I don't think it's a good idea to start trying to work that out, especially when you consider how controlled Japanese idols' lives are. Relationships tend to be banned.

That new band name is an awful decision seriously.

Track was pretty fun though for the most part, but they still can't avoid sounding like a slightly more annoying and at times disapointing Babymetal clone.
