Have you been craving more Yanakoto Sotto Mute? Actually, for the alternative idol scene, I find myself looking forward to the group’s releases. The group’s sound really resonates with me, and I was “hella bummed” that I had to miss the group when they made their way to Anaheim this summer. At least I get a recording video of the group’s “Nostalgia” from their mini album “Yumoresuka #1”. First in a series of 3 digital releases, I’ll be looking hard for more releases from Yanakoto Sotto Mute. It’s not really fair to judge “Nostalgia” too hard: it’s not a proper promotional video. So watch, listen, and let’s wait for the next one, eh? “Yumoresuka #1” is at the digital services listed below now.
Yanakoto Sotto Mute (やなことそっとミュート) is a Japanese idol group formed in August 2016. They are managed by DCG Entertainment and produced by composer/arranger Hiroaki Taniyama, who is also MIGMA SHELTER’s sound producer. Yanakoto Sotto Mute means something like “gently mute the unpleasant things” and their concept can be roughly translated to, “While gently muting the unpleasant things in everyday life might not solve anything, for the time being, let’s sing rock with a sorrowful melody”. The genres they use to describe their music are grunge, shoegaze, and alternative rock. (from YesTiger!). Yanakoto Sotto Mute’s current lineup includes members Mamiya Mani (間宮まに), Nadeshiko (なでしこ), Minami Ichika (南一花), and Rena (レナ).
