From Asobi System and the latest fashion mags comes this promotional video from model turned singer MANON. The “GOMENNE GIRL” from French/Japanese girl’s 2018 debut plays with whimsical low-fi keyboard sounds that probably sampled my Casio Keyboard from 1988. MANON’s vocals are whispy in a way that invites fantasy and match the musical offering like neon green goes with leg warmers. And predictably, I love it. “GOMENNE GIRL” films MANON on a solo date in the park. She plays her cassette-fueled boombox pond side, takes her Ken doll on a pedal-boat ride, and sings into her bouquet of flowers. I don’t know that I would recommend MANON to everyone; the fey aesthetic definitely polarizes. But if you are so inclined, give MANON a listen and let me know about it in the comments. “GOMENNE GIRL” is on MANON’s debut album “Teenage Diary”, on sale now.




MANON promoting “Teenage Diary”



MANON, who has been drawing attention as a street snap regular, has been active as a model from early in her life. The French-Japanese model lives in Fukuoka. From 2017 YUPPA (HNC) has been producing her music activities, with Kero Kero Bonito (UK) and Ryan Hemsworth (Canada) also participating in her 2018 debut album “TEENAGE DIARY”. MANON is an up and coming girl who gathers expectations with a sound that mixes up the current progressive system of alternative rock and hip hop and Japanese girlie “Kawaii” culture. MANON is currently associated with Asobi System (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, CAPSULE, Teddyloid, etc.).
