about

板村瞳と森脇ひとみによるガールズデュオ、その他の短編ズ。

2012年に福岡で結成し、お面をつけての演奏や、絵と言葉を用いたパフォーマンスなど、音楽と演劇を融合したようなユニークなスタイルで、過去には「シブカル祭。」や「黄金町バザール」など、カルチャー、アート系イベントにも数多く出演。音楽、アート、ファッションと、シーンの垣根を越えて、今大きく注目を集める二人組です。

二本のアコースティックギターとリズムマシーン兼キーボード。そこに少しのパーカッション。楽器はこれだけ。余計な装飾を排したシンプルなアンサンブルに、歌ともラップとも朗読ともつかない、ユニークなボーカルのかけあい。奇妙だけど耳に心地よい言葉のチョイス。そしてグッとくるメロディとハーモニー。フォーク?アヴァンポップ?ローファイ?ヒップホップ?はたまた神楽?そのいずれでもあって、いずれでもない、あまりにも独創的なサウンドプロダクション。全七曲とコンパクトな作品の中に、彼女達のオルタナティブな魅力がぎっしり詰まっています。

二人のヒトミ、その眼差しの向こうに広がる、少し歪で豊穣な世界。触れると心がザワザワしますよ!



Formed in Fukuoka in 2012, Sonotanotanpenz, a girls’ duo by Hitomi Itamura and Hitomi Moriwaki, has continued their activities in a unique style; their musical performances wearing masks, using pictures and words are somewhat like a fusion of music and drama. In the past, the duo has performed in numerous art events such as “Shibukaru Matsuri” and “Koganecho Bazaar”, and are gaining prominence in various scenes such as music, art and fashion.

Two acoustic guitars and a rhythm machine-cum-keyboard. Add a little bit of percussion to that. That’s it. A minimal ensemble that rejects any unnecessary adornment, a unique vocal duet that cannot be described as a song, a rap, a recitation or a prayer. Choices of words that are odd yet comfortable to the ear. Finally, a melody and harmony that catches your heart. Folk? Avant pop? Lo-Fi? Industrial? Art Punk? Hip-hop? Or is it Kagura (ancient Shinto music)? All, but at the same time, none of these; a sound production too ingenious. In their upcoming work, “Conga”, Sonotanotanpenz’s unique individuality has become even sharper and exceedingly pop. In this compact work with seven tracks, the duo’s alternative charm is overflowing.

The fertile and slightly crooked world that spreads out in front of the two Hitomi’s eyes - One you touch it, your heart will have the jumps!
