Ichiko Aoba's Insta restored

2021-02-11 by giving 4 reviews to albums only 3 people in the world have heard STAFF | 21 Comments
Japanese singer/songwriter Ichiko Aoba has heralded the recovery of her Instagram account with an adorable drawing of a girl, possibly Aoba herself, holding a cup of tea and smiling, while a fish descends from the heavens.

Here it is: https://www.facebook.com/ichikoaoba.info/posts/147760423830467

Aoba's Insta was hacked by unknown parties earlier this week, as the singer disclosed in two posts uploaded to her Facebook page. The latter post, dated Feb 7th, is a handwritten letter written in both English and Japanese. The former, dated Feb 6th, is a Japanese memo that machine translates as follows:

Currently, there is an account takeover on the Instagram of aoba city. We are responding to early solution. We apologize for your concern.

In unrelated news, Aoba also has a new single, available for streaming and download on her Bandcamp page. The song, "Asleep Among Endives" is a step back from the chamber arrangements of her latest album Windswept Eden and a return to her solo folk sounds.

She uploaded a name-your-price demo version yesterday (one day after she recovered her Instagram account).

Yeah but if she's not going to use it to eat Pikachu for future memorandums, why reinstate it in the first place?

A good point, but not just anyone can eat Pikachu; Wata is like 20 yrs older than Ichiko and earned that right long ago. Ichiko is waiting for her moment and will ultimately be the stronger for it

That’s a beautiful perspective, but I certainly hope that her 0% album was not named as a signpost of her progress en route to Pikachewing

Wouldn’t the Insta part be considered the unrelated news?
