Starting with traditional instruments that pick up into bottom heavy shuffle, Fleurette adds visuals to their latest single “Wasurenagusa (勿忘草)”. The members look elegantly dressed in brightly colored dresses keyed to member colors. The emotional offering of the song is such that the girls barely have strength to look directly at the camera, which catches the girls in sideways glances. From the crimson parasol that starts the PV to the beautiful temple grounds (I should recognize this place by now) to the flutes and harps, Fleurette gives us the Japanese flavor that reminds us about why we are listening. “Wasurenagusa” is integration of tradition with idols done tastefully. You can find “Wasurenagusa” on Fleurette’s 10th single “Wasurenagusa / Blue Star” in stores now.
Fleurette (フルーレット, from French), is a Japanese female idol group afiliated with “Friend Shiga Co., Ltd.” in Kusatsu City, Shiga Prefecture . The group made its debute in July 2013 under the name Furifuru Sisters, and assumed their current name on May 18, 2014. The group name means “small flowers” in French. Each small flower is a big flower if everyone gathers, and it is attached with a wish to give smiles and energy to people all over the country. The concept is “orthodox royal road idol”. It is possible to take photos during live performances (not video) and spread the photos on SNS. Fleurette’s current lineup includes members Tsuji Rio (辻 梨央), Ryoga Akari (涼賀 あかり), Shimizu Maruna (清水 満月), Nasu Miyabi (那須 雅), Akada Hina (赤田 陽菜),Okada Rina (岡田 莉那), and Kitagawa Honoka (北川 歩乃海).
