Green and vulnerable yet beautiful...
That is how this all-girl rock band from Okinawa, Stereopony would be described.
Their major debut single "Hitohira No Hanabira" is TV ending theme song of one of the most successful Japanese anime BLEACH.
Their ages averaging 18, a time full of conflicts and pressure concerning love and friendship. That really intense period in life helped mold their pure and straight-foward sound.
An advanced type of nostalgic rock may sound a little strange.
However, it truly hits the spot and for kids their age, it portrays their reality. That is Stereopony's world.
Their susceptibility is defined by edgy, wistful but also refreshing at the same time.
Causing a storm within the riotous teenagers with their red-hot rock sound, they will become an agitator leading the way for rock kids!
