Now is the time to check in with BRATS, the former LADYBABY idol and gravure model Kuramiya Rei’s girl band project. I’ve always maintained that Rei’s voice is powerful and compelling in ways that as underutilized by her former group. In this XXX, BRATS compliment her voice with more sludgy rock grooves that should make you think about the golden age of grunge. The claustrophobic poured concrete rooms and iron-gated elevators give “Doudatte yokatta” the look of a sanitorium with the long, white shirts worn by Rei, her sister Aya, and Hinako marking the trio as inmates. Giving the promotional video a watch, I don’t think anyone can argue Rei’s passion for this project. Me being who I am, I respond very well to the musical style of BRATS and of course I love “Doudatte yokatta” to pieces. You can find “Doudatte yokatta” on BRATS debut album “BRATS”, due on July 25, 2018.
