The Male Half of Gesu no Kiwami Otome. Emerges from the Ashes to Form New Band

Both Gesu no Kiwami Otome. and indigo la End were dropped by their management on New Year’s Eve due to frontman Kawatani Enon’s inability to control his love life. But something has rose from the ashes! Bassist Kyujitsu Kacho has formed a new unit with vocalist REIS and Gesu no Kiwami Otome. / indigo la End recording and live support member Etsuko, who also goes by the name katyusha. This new band is named DADARAY.

The band’s name is a combination of the the word “DADA”, as in the early 20th century art movement Dadaism, and the word “RAY” as in light. Dadaism went against established norms of society, and this new band hopes to do the same thing, but with light. DADARAY came about after several studio sessions. With this new band, Kyujitsu Kacho hopes to create high quality pop with an adult feel. DADARAY’s music production is being handled by Kyujitsu Kacho and Enon.

On April 5, DADRAY will release their first mini album, “DADAISM.” The band recently released the music video for its opening track, “Ikitsukushi.” Check it out below, along with the tracklist for their mini album!

3. ダダイズム (Dadaism)

      nice feel to this track, will listen to the rest when it’s out

      I like the song, but not a fan of the vocals.

      For the sake of the former members of Gesu not being punished for somehing Enon did, I’m hoping this works out well, but the vocals doesn’t really fit with the instrumental.

      • “Lifeless” is a word that’s been floating around.

      i love this, perfect night time record and excellent production. i’m happy Enon and some of his bandmates are doing something. can’t wait for the record
      hmmm but they weren’t exactly dropped by management, both parties chose to not renew their contracts Ronald.

    • NatSamui

      Nice track with recognizable tune. However I would prefer another (you know whose, Ronald) vocal. Aside from who he is, I vote for the music

    • ProllyWild

      as the minority who never really liked gesu because of enon and his voice, I actually prefer this.

    • I wish the whole song was more like that last half minute.

    • EvaXVII

      Vocalist is NIKIIE (it must be), I’m glad she’s got some new music out.
