BOYS ORDER: Playback EP: Cassette

One of the cutest things I’ve heard in cassette form in a very long time. Boy’s Order is a four-piece, sugary, female-fronted rock band from Japan and they’ve got some fantastic melodies. Songs are uptempo and these five tracks are over fairly quickly, which means you can totally listen to them twice in one sitting! Their singer and bass player, Chihiro, is so high pitched that she almost reaches chipmunk octaves, but never to the point of annoyance. She makes you want to bob your head and smile while singing along to adorable lyrics, albeit slightly lost in translation, like, “Do you want to date with me? / Let me go / It’s broken my heart.” Dancey songs about love and loss that keep you grinning play after play after play.
