    Just recently, Perfume participated in the TV shows ‘The Music Day’ and ‘Ongaku no Hi’. They delivered enchanting performances of ‘Mugenmirai’ and ‘TOKYO GIRL ‘. The girls also participated in a music festival in Taipei, Taiwan this past August 4th and 5th. Aside from that, Perfume is again holding a dance contest for their fans. This contest is open to all fans not only from Japan but the rest of the world. Perfume asked their fans to imitate the performance of ‘TOKYO GIRL ‘. The final round was held on August 25th in Tokyo. Besides that project, they have another new project called ‘Perfume Closet’. Their objective is to sell clothes that were based on their songs. You could check their Website for more information.They even have a new endorsement from a coffee shop chain called Tully’s.

    The Writer’s Personal Thoughts about ‘Future Pop’ and Perfume’s Future Activities

    I am a huge fan of Perfume since 2012. I knew of them since 2008 during their Polyrhythm and Chocolate Disco era but I only started following their career since 2012 and I don’t regret it! I love them to bits! Regarding Perfume’s new song ‘Let Me Know’, I waited for the song to be aired on their radio show ‘School of Locks’. I find the song sweet. Almost all of their tunes sound so sweet!

    There are six new songs from this brand new album and I am looking forward to listening to them. I already pre-ordered the limited edition through a friend in Japan and I can’t wait to receive it! I am also looking forward to the music videos and video clips that are included in the package. There are some new clips included in there that have not yet been released.

    Perfume is planning on visiting Taiwan for another music festival and will have an arena tour in Japan. They haven’t toured in the Philippines yet, where I am from. It seems unlikely for now since they don’t have much of a fan base here in the Philippines. I’ve been to their live concert in Singapore for their first world tour. I hope to see them in Japan someday.

    The fans are now teased with the preview of their new song in their radio station and all of us are very excited!
