FEMM launch 80s 90s J-pop revival project with double-A-side single

As “dolls with minds”, FEMM are known for producing tracks with elements of electropop and hip-hop, while twerking and tutting in latex fashion. Now it would appear that the mannequin duo are looking to go back in time, as their next move has been described as an “80s/90s J-Pop revival.”

The first instance of their Japanese culture revival project is a double-A-sided digital future pop cover of Misato Watanabe’s My Revolution, and a cover of Kenji Ozawa feat. Scha Dara Parr’s Konyaha wa Boogie Back (Nice Vocal).

Frequent collaborators FAKY and Yup’in (from the group FAMM’IN) are also featured on these tracks. FAKY’s Anna, Mikako and new member Akina can be heard providing vocals on My Revolution, while Yup’in and FAKY’s Lil’Fang participate in Konyaha wa Boogie Back. The single also has an original third track, Falling For A Lullaby, that is solely FEMM.

Four cover artwork designs by various artists inspired by Katsuhiro Otomo’s Akira have been released for the single. To really appreciate the work, click to enlarge.
