A tenth anniversary from the elusive duo ClariS finally brings the pair to the New PV Alerts. Performing in customary masks, the pair deliver this ending theme to the TV anime “Mahou Shoujo Madoka☆Magica Gaiden”. The uplifting melodies of “Alicia (アリシア)” probably hides something diabolical (I’m no Madoka Magica rookie), but in any case I’m sure you’ll enjoy listening to the storied pair of singers on this 21st single. “Alicia/Signal” is on sale now.
ClariS (クラリス, Kurarisu) is a Japanese pop music duo which formed in 2009 with singers Clara and Alice from Hokkaido, who were in junior high school at the time. The pair began singing covers and submitting them to the Niconico video sharing website between 2009 and 2010. ClariS subsequently signed to SME Records and released their debut single “Irony” in October 2010. ClariS’ music has been featured in anime series such as Oreimo, Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Nisemonogatari, Nisekoi, and Eromanga Sensei. They have also performed at the Nippon Budokan, and at anime music events in Japan such as Animax Musix and Animelo Summer Live. The duo is known for its members not showing their faces in public or revealing their identities, in order to allow for them to focus on their studies; the group’s members wear masks during live performances. For promotional material, their persona is represented by illustrations drawn by various artists.
