detail

おとぼけビ~バ~ - Otoboke Beaver are a punk-rock-garage quartet from Kyoto,

Japan named after a local ‘Love Hotel’-they describe themselves as: “Japanese girls ‘knock out or pound cake’ band”.

Formed in 2009’s summer in Kyoto, Japan, and consists of Accorinrin (Lead Vocal & Guitar), Yoyoyoshie (Guitar &Vocals), Hiro-chan (Bass &Vocals) and Kahokiss(Drums &Vocals).

Live the band often invade the audience, often with guitarist Yoshie crowd-surfing whilst playing wild riffs flawlessly.

Sonically, it’s crazed, deranged garage, punk-rock-pop at break-neck speed and everyone sings in Japanese, often in Kyoto slang.

 

2017 was a breakthrough year for the band with premieres in Pitchfork, NPR, i-D and The Fader, astonishing SXSW/Fuji Rock debuts,

a sold-out 100 Club gig and their ‘Love Is Short’ 7” sat in the UK charts for 4 weeks. 2018 promises to just as exciting.

 

“The Kyoto feminist punks Otoboke Beaver blaze through “Love Is Short” with all the gravitational force of a brick to the ground. It’s sheer calamity and deliriously fun—supercharged, sugar-rush hardcore with breathless vocals, pogoing 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

 

“Not new, just new to us. Unhinged garage-punk from Japanese all-woman quartet-not to be missed.” The Guardian.
