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.
