LC5

LC5 was a side project of Miku, vocalist from the hugely popular oshare-kei music group An Cafe, who signed to Sony Music this year 2010, but promptly continued indefinite hiatus before saving a note because of their new paymasters. The label still wished new music, therefore Miku promptly come up with the new music group with former associates of Mello, Man’s Family members, and Ninjaman Japan. Within a dramatic change from An Cafe’s saccharine, garishly coloured pop-punk, LC5 sported a toned-down, monochrome appearance and purveyed a slick, refined style of intensely ’80s-inspired, occasionally melancholy pop/rock and roll. Their debut one “Loveless” noticed Miku growing his vocal range significantly, acquired a gloriously outrageous video, and was an enormous success. Many place this right down to Miku’s pretty-boy picture and significant profile being a sex image among An Cafe’s existing group of fans — however the band’s audio, while definately not primary, was different, efficient and enjoyable more than enough to attract the interest of many visible fans who never have paid attention to An Cafe. Through the following year, they created three further singles, which offered respectably, and in March 2012 released their debut recording LChronicle. AS AN Cafe, these were quickly purchased from the German label Gan-Shin, who released the singles and recording digitally in European countries. In middle-2012, An Cafe announced these were re-forming and will be releasing a fresh mini-album through Sony. In addition they undertook a brief globe tour. With An Cafe’s re-formation, LC5’s potential looked to maintain doubt; nevertheless, the music group did continue steadily to make sporadic live looks through the remainder of 2012 and in to the following year.
