Starting with jagged rhythms and extreme close ups, Aimyon’s latest digital single “Sayonara no kyou ni (さよならの今日に)” offers an up close introspection. By the camera pulls back from Aimyon’s richly textured mane of hair we can see that she’s windswept at a construction site deep in Tokyo. The pigeons fly behind Aimyon timed to her goodbyes. The single take of the PV puts us close to Aimyon in a way that feels like an intimate confession, and as she storms out of the cunstruction pit it feels like all the pain of a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. “Sayonara no kyou ni” might be my favorite Aimyon single in quite a while, and I’m pretty damn fanatical about the artist. Aimyon’s “Sayonara no kyou ni” is available now at the digital retailers below.
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”.
