Swedish-born artist YOHIO
is quickly breaking into the Japanese visual kei scene. Taking a break from his duty as lead guitarist of Swedish band Seremedy, the 16-year-old recently recorded for his “SKY ☆LIMIT
” music video, which is the lead track from his Japanese solo debut mini-album “REACH the SKY
The story behind the “SKY☆LIMIT” video was all YOHIO's idea. In the video, YOHIO expresses two different outlooks by playing a girl with a colorful pop image and a boy with a futuristic style.
On the day of filming, YOHIO arrived at the studio early in the morning. As always, YOHIO brought his pig balloon named Buta-sama (Mr. Pig
) to the set. The girl version was shot first. In these scenes YOHIO plays the guitar on a colorful set that used computer generated images. After a break in the afternoon, the crew moved to a different studio and shot the boy version. YOHIO made sure to take Buta-sama along with him.
During breaks YOHIO took to Twitter and posted several pictures of Buta-sama. At 8 in the evening, the staff and crew gave a final round of applause as shooting came to an end.
The PV for “SKY☆LIMIT” is expected to be completed in late March.
