Their dreamy pop sound might remind us of Lorde or TOPS. And you might remember The Wake or The Durutti Column when you listen her fragile guitar play. Furthermore, their innocent vocal harmony would bring us to a forgotten paradise once all we were in our childhood.

Produced by Masahiro Araki(Fredricson), Three-piece all-female outfit CRUNCH absorbed 90’s alternative rock and J-POP essences to make their 1st LP which expresses various emotions and landscapes from a unique viewpoint of women.

In spite of the Japanese lyrics, their songs are fascinating music media around the world by friendly melody and solid songwriting.  It seems that their own “indie-pop style” suggests a different way for Japanese indie music scene where AOR / Yacht Rock revival is continuing.


[CRUNCH Profile]
"The best band we have played with on tour." by Josh Burgess (Yumi Zouma)
"Hopefully the pop world still has a little place for them." by Ian F Martin (Japan Times)
"Embraces melancholy in true indie-pop style." by Patrick St. Michel (Pitchfork)

CRUNCH is a three-piece all-female outfit from Nagoya, Japan. They are often referred to as post-punk / new wave group like NEW ORDER, but also inspired by all the music of the good old days like Burt Bacharach .

Besides, their music’s emotion would remind us of legendary Japanese pops such as Happy End or Yumi “Yuming” Arai. Their style is very unique, ambivalent, but at same time, has attractive musicality.

In 2016, Their EP "blue blue blue" was featured on several music media around the world. For example, it was reviewed on “The Japan Times” by Patrick St. Michel who contributes for Pitchfork. Global music media beehype praised it by selecting for their “Best Albums of 2016”.  So far, CRUNCH performed with great musicians, like Yumi Zouma, Shugo Tokumaru, D.A.N., never young beach, For Tracy Hyde, cattle etc.
