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.
Below is the poster for the band’s Davao gigs found in the Facebook page created for the event:
