Woopak's J-Rock Selection: MELL From Sapporo Japan!
May 1, 2010
Mell is a Japanese singer who hails from Sapporo Japan. She is a vocalist of “I’ve Sound” but since then she has released many singles and one solo album.
She made international fame when she sang the theme for the anime series BLACK LAGOON. I really don’t know much about how rock, punk and techno differs from one another but I do somewhat get reminded of Bjork when I listen to her music. Her work mostly feels like a fusion of dance, rave with very rebellious and cryptic lyrics. I do like the videos and the raw attitude that she exudes in them, I am impressed as to how she looks like a singing YUREI (long-haired ghost) in the vid of Red Faction. I have listed some of her solo works:
Under Superstition, Way beyond there, Kill, No vain, On my own, Permit Proof, Kicks! Scope, Red fraction, The first finale in me, Egen, Virgin's high! Sabaku no Yuki.
