Aimyon’s recently released (like TODAY) 8th single gives us the perfect mirror for those midsummer, heat-induced fever dreams. Beginning with a little swing in her strum, Aimyon alternates “Manatsu no Yoru no Nioigasuru (真夏の夜の匂いがする)” through acoustic musings and a more spirited, swaggering rock chorus. The song is a musical journey through that really specific dreamscape we were talking about earlier. “Manatsu no yoru no nioigasuru” the promotional keeps the viewer a bit in the dark, literally. Aimyon strums under ornate glass windows and richly patterned wallpaper. Meanwhile, and perhaps under her own gaze, salaryman suited men writhe in a twisted choreography perturbing a sleeping Aimyon. You know already how much I love Aimyon, so I’m not going to sing much more to her. Aimyon’s “Manatsu no yoru no nioigasuru” is on sale now.
Aimyon (あいみょん, born March 6, 1995) is a Japanese singer and songwriter. Aimyon was born on March 6, 1995 in the city of Nishinomiya in Hyōgo Prefecture. She decided to become a singer because of her grandmother who wanted to become a singer, and her father who worked in acoustics. During her middle school years, she began writing songs and doing covers with the acoustic guitar her English teacher left her. When she was in high school, her friend sent her application to an audition without her knowledge, and she qualified for the final rounds. After graduating from high school, a YouTube video of one of her performances caught the attention of her first music label, Lastrum Music Entertainment. Aimyon wrote the lyrics for the song “Time Goes By” from the third single of the boy group Johnny’s West, released on February 4, 2015. On March 4th, 2015, she made her indie debut with the single “Anata Kaibou Junaika (Shine)”. Aimyon made her major debut with her March 30, 2016 single “Ikiteitanda yo na”.
