Back in 2007, I came across this little trio of Japanese singers via YouTube who called themselves Perfume. After watching about ten of their music videos, I was hooked. I obtained some of their music and soon shared it with my sister, who immediately became a fan as well.
Since then, her fandom has surpassed mine, and she makes sure I stay in the loop with any new songs, albums, music videos, and concert footage.
This year, Perfume is making a tour stop in America close enough that we’re finally going to see them live! The entire trip is going to be quite a bit more driving than I can usually handle, but we’re breaking it up enough that hopefully it’ll be OK 👍.
Another exciting part is that we’ve booked a room through Airbnb, and it’ll be my first experience with it. I’ve heard so many good things about it, it’s so much cheaper than a hotel, and the particular room I booked has SO many great reviews!
As of the publishing of this post, we’re probably reloading our stuff in the car to set out for Illinois. I won’t give a lot of details about the trip until it’s over, but I’m glad the planning is finally done.
Nine years of fandom leading up to this. Perfume is bigger than ever as the most popular Jpop group in Japan. Even Pentatonix posted a music video just last week with their Perfume medley!
I’ll leave you with the videos to two of my favourite new songs of theirs (one fast and one slow):
