I haven’t really taken much notice of BABYMETAL before (even though I subscribed to them on YouTube a while back), but I just watched the promo video for their latest single KARATE and I actually found it kind of cool and catchy. For those of you who haven’t seen it, you can check out the video below.

It appears that BABYMETAL will be emabarking on a new world tour soon, which will kick off on the 2nd of April at Wembley Stadium(!). I’m actually quite amazed at the success they’ve had. There are heaps of talented Japanese singers and musicians, but very few of them are well-known outside Japan. Then again, I guess they don’t really have anything really different to offer the world. BABYMETAL very cleverly came up with a novel approach to a somewhat niche genre.

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!
