Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Mondai Girl

Harajuku Pop Princess and fashion icon, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu recently released her latest single Mondai Girl. Well known by most for her iconic single, "PonPonPon" released back in 2011, Kyary's unique blend of cute sounding vocals, poppy music and eccentric flare took Japan by storm, quickly earning her a spot on Japans top ten list. To date, she has since released several singles as well as three full-length albums, Pamyu Pamyu Revolution in 2012, Nanda Collection in 2013, Pika Pika Fantajin in 2014, and most recently a brand new single, Mondai Girl.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu - Mondai Girl
(Full Version)

Mondai Girl - a song about being pursued by the paparazzi - opens with catchy rhythmic drum beats, poppy bass-lines and the tuneful sounds of an electric keyboard, followed by Kyary's distinct brand of cute sounding vocals complimenting the ensemble. As the opening verse progresses, the vocals take a on more melodic tone, while the various instruments are joined by jingles and other digital sound effects that if nothing else, add a little extra charm to the piece. The chorus is punchy and infused with pure J-pop zeal,  Kyary's expressive vocalisation works in harmony with the supercharged pop sounds provided by the accompanying instrumentation, all combining to create a catchy and memorable tune.

All-in-all Mondai Girl is a fun and entertaining piece, the song maintains a consistent rhythm throughout with slight shifts in dynamic that help keep you engaged. Whilst perhaps not quite on par with her past hits, "PonPopPon" or "Fashion Monster" Mondai Girl is sure to please long time fans. However, those who are still on the fence or have chosen to avoid her work thus far, will fined little here to encourage them to jump on board now. 

Those of you interested in checking out the song for yourselves, you can find the MV of Mondai Girl (Full version) linked above.
