Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is back with her tenth single, the progressive J-Electro track “Mondai Girl” (“Problem Girl”) produced by longtime collaborator Yasutaka Nakata (Capsule, Perfume). In the anime and sci-fi flavored music video, Kyary adopts some surprising new looks, appearing in a retro pink ensemble, and as a dark, futuristic warrior.
The song features a hard-driving electro sound crafted by Nakata, who also returned with Capsule last month for the EDM-influenced “Wave Runner” album. “Mondai Girl” echoes his work with artists like Perfume and Meg, featuring a heavily syncopated beat and slick, dissonant synth hooks and melodies. Kyary’s new song is the theme for the Fuji Television series “Mondainoaru Restaurant” (“A Restaurant with Many Problems”), and will be released in both CD and digital versions.
