Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Releases Modai Girl Video

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Modai Girl

A “short” version (hey – it’s nearly 3 minutes in length! That’s longer than most punk songs) of Mondai Girl has been released on the Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s official YouTube channel today. The track is taken from her upcoming triple A single due for release on 18 March. The single’s other two A-side tracks have already been revealed; My Room, used in a commercial for a room rental app (click here to see it); and KISEKAE, used in the New Nintendo 3DS adverts last year.

A longer version of Mondai Girl (“Problem Girl”) is apparently on the way, and the single will be made available here via Kyary’s iTunes page,

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Sells Out London’s Islington Academy

In little over a day Harajuku’s ‘Kawaii Ambassador’ Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has managed to sell out London’s 800 capacity O2 Islington Academy. Her UK debut show will take place on Wednesday 13 February as part of her 100%KPP WORLD TOUR 2013. So far two other European dates have been announced; a show in Brussels (Belgium) with Vk* Concerts on 9 February, followed by a date in Paris’ La Cigale on 10 February.

Congratulation, the young star’s creating a Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, and we wonder how long it will be until other Japanese pop acts decide to venture out into Europe seeking similar success.
