Japanese gothic duo
Today we will take a look at another genre of Japanese music.
A couple of days ago I discovered this gothic duo called Yōsei Teikoku – 妖精帝國 (Fairy Empire in English.) Ooo.. spooky!!
Formed in 1997 Yōsei Teikoku consists of female vocalist and lyricist Yōsei Yui – 妖精ゆい (also known as Fairy Yui) and guitarist Takaha Tachibana – 橘 尭葉 who writes the music. He doesn’t appear in all their videos.
Much of their music appears in anime like まじぽか- “Magipoka.” Anyone familiar with their work drop me a line here.
Here is a sample of Yōsei Teikoku, It’s the song and PV for “Schwarzer Sarg” ( “black coffin” in German.) It peaked at # 43 on the Oricon charts in July of 2008.
