Japanese musician Haru Nemuri – real name Haruna Kimishima – calls herself ‘The Singing Ultimate Weapon’. That assertion is certainly no exaggeration: her music sounds like pop from a completely different dimension, blending electronics, rap, rock, punk, emo, metal and J-pop with infectious abandon.

Despite the abundance of styles she adopts, Haru Nemuri sounds anything but confusing: every song feels like you are being given a fine overdose of dopamine. No wonder platforms such as Stereogum and Anthony Fantano’s The Needle Drop fell for this stubborn, all-consuming artist. Y Haru Nemuri’s impassioned enthusiasm, originality is an experience not to be missed!
