Recorded, mixed & mastered with Ippei Suda at LM Studio, Osaka-Japan.
2018 see’s them cram three UK dates inbetween slots at Coachella Music Festival this April. The tour is entitled ‘ATTYUUMA’ (Blink Of An Eye).
Otoboke Beaver おとぼけビ〜バ〜 are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto, Japan. The band’s name is taken from a local ‘Love Hotel’ and they describe themselves as: “Japanese girls ‘knock out or pound cake’ band”.
Formed in 2009’s summer at Kyoto University’s music club, the band consists of Accorinrin (Lead Vocal & Guitar), Yoyoyoshie (Guitar & Vocals), Hirochan (Bass & Vocals) and Pop (Drums & Vocals). 2017 was a breakthrough year for the band with attention from Pitchfork, NPR, i-D and The Fader, acclaimed SXSW & Fuji Rock Festival debuts, a sold-out 100 Club show, and their ‘Love Is Short’ 7” sat in the UK charts for 4 weeks. 2018 promises to be just as exciting.
“… sheer calamity and deliriously fun — supercharged, sugar-rush hardcore with breathless vocals, pogo-ing rhythms, and torrential DayGlo riffs… the fire of “Love Is Short” recalls a lineage of patriarchy-scorching girl-gang shrieks, from the Slits’ “Shoplifting” to Bikini Kill’s “Liar” and beyond.” Pitchfork “Their Riot Grrrl attitudes and passion for noise-rock make them stand out as true renegades in the underground scene.”– i-D
“The Kyoto-based Otoboke Beaver takes in the history of Japanese punk and runs with scissors in hand towards the bonkers-noise of early Boredoms, Afrirampo’s uninhibited avant-punk, and the revved-up garage-rock of Shonen Knife…Punk is rarely this charmingly vicious.” NPR Music
