BAND-MAID - ‘Just Bring It’ Cover

J-rock like you've never heard it before.

Spinning off from Tokyo’s culture of maid cafes, BAND-MAID are a unique prospect; combining elements of the Japanese otaku scene (essentially, anime and manga fandom) and stomping, soaring pop-rock/metal.

Whatever you make of their aesthetic, this new album is an enjoyably polished affair, packed with huge choruses and swaggering riffs. ‘Don’t You Tell ME’ and ‘YOLO’ are ridiculously catchy, while the five-piece’s musicianship shines through in all manner of guitar pyrotechnics and radio-friendly bombast. Compelling stuff.
