Former ANGERME member Tamura Meimi is back with her 3rd single “Butai (舞台)”. You’re not finding anything near the veins of an alt-idol rock here with “Butai”. Instead, Spanish guitars and twisted melodies remind me of Shiina Ringo’s foray into similar territory. The sensual latinesque rhythms provide a supple background for Meimi’s powerul vocal performance. The singer takes a rainy day along the river to add a cleansing spirit to the visuals of “Butai”. The song is far removed from Meimi’s idol life, but I think her fans will appreciate this intriguing entry to her repertoire. “Butai” goes on sale August 21, 2019.
Tamura Meimi (田村芽実, born October 30, 1998) is a Japanese singer and actress. She is a former idol as a second generation member of ANGERME (formerly S/mileage) under Hello! Project.
