HARU NEMURI has just recently released "kick in the world" but she is already releasing a new single "i wanna".
"kick in the world" was selected as the No.1 song in the American music website Stereogum's THE 5 BEST SONGS OF THE WEEK, garnering great response and rave reviews overseas just by the pure power of the music.
"i wanna" differs from the two prior works, compositionally driven by inorganic tracks, that let's you feel her depth as a track composer.
As a vocalist, she has a wide vocal range from strong intense shouts to soft whisper voices, infused with her own experimental poetry without melody that evolves with precision and originality with each work.
Not settling at just setting the standard of a new generation of J-Pop, "i wanna" is released to take on the wider global audience.

Maybe it's this brevity - the immediate payoff - that makes her music so rewarding." - Stereogum (40 best new bands of 2018) "Everything is blown-out to a widescreen post-rock scope yet feels jarringly immediate. The music is visionary and richly layered, the performance enthusiastic and dialed-in." - Stereogum on Haru to Shura "Haru Nemuri's new single "Kick In The World" sounds like if you put a bunch of razor blades in a blender and let it rip." - Stereogum (best song of the week) "Haru Nemuri's debut album pushes J-pop/rap in an exciting direction by channeling Japan's rich history of underground rock music." - The Needle Drop "Haru Nemuri has begun to feel like a scene essential, like one of the most important voices coming out of [Japan], and possibly even [all of Asia]. Pushing noise pop to ludicrous new highs of immediacy, and pushing the sonic limits of guitar sounds' brittle-ness to even higher planes." - Overblown "You aren't just experiencing a new J-pop album, you're experiencing a new J-pop LANDMARK. Essential." - deadgrandmablog "An amazing synthesis of ideas that would seem so likely to be far apart but successfully sewed together by Nemuri's confidence to deliver a representation of her unique artistry." - delishmagish
