So apparently Eurovision happened, and…well, can’t say I was all that interested. Though I do love me some Europop from time to time, I’m not particularly invested in the scene.
And then I saw a picture of this guy.
This, if your eyes have not yet been met with the sight of a million squealing girls facerolling their keyboards in sexual frustration, is Yohio, a Swedish visual kei artist. And by god, does he look neat. Sure, the eye makeup and HUEG contacts seems just a smidge yellowface, but Japan digs him, so no harm, no foul, I guess.
I’ve only heard one of his songs so far, his first English release, “Our Story” (which, dude, stick to the color HUEG contacts, the brown ones are dipping a little into uncanny valley), and he sounds alright. I may check out Seremedy sometime.
Also good on him for getting a Vocaloid.
