A Japanese rock group set to perform in the Philippines in September has released a cover version of Kamikazee’s hit song “Narda”. The video was uploaded to YouTube on Tuesday.
Uchusentai Noiz (or Uchuu Sentai Noiz, as they are listed in Wikipedia) is a “visual kei” rock band known for their energetic music, which mixes punk, pop, metal, and electronica, colorful cosplay-like outfits, and wild, onstage antics.
Visual kei is Japan’s answer to glam rock. It is said to be a movement among Japanese musicians defined by the use of make-up, elaborate hairstyles and flamboyant costumes, often characterized by androgynous aesthetics.
Uchusentai Noiz will perform in Davao City on September 7 (Station91) and September 8 and 9 (SM City Davao parking lot).
The text introducing the music video says they will perform in Manila on September 15 and 16 but provides no further details.
