17 Jan Sumire Uesaka: Back Catalogue Released In Europe Ahead of POP TEAM EPIC Single
Appeared in over 80 anime and video game productions
Music used as theme songs in over 10 anime series
Japan’s singer and voice actress Sumire Uesaka has made her back catalogue available digitally within Europe for the first time, ahead of ninth single POP TEAM EPIC, released via JPU records in Europe from 2nd February 2018.
Uesaka’s passion for heavy metal, techno and Russia is evident throughout her career in J-pop. Even debut single Nanatsu no Umi Yori Kimi no Umi from 2013 showed that this up-and-coming star was anything but conventional with its super cute, sunshine-like choruses and nods to Russian classic Kalinka and traditional Okinawan folk, while also including heavy metal influenced breakdowns – all contained in a song that is most definitely pop.
Both of Sumire Uesaka’s studio albums have entered Japan’s official top ten album chart, and are available now for digital download and streaming from all major providers across Europe, along with all eight singles and EP, courtesy of JPU Records.
Brand new single POP TEAM EPIC has already had a massive impact outside of Japan when its video hit YouTube this week ahead of the six-track single’s official release on 2nd February in Europe. The cute pop song with aggressive dubstep overtones is the opening theme song to the new hit anime series of the same name, which also features Sumire Uesaka as the voice to blue-haired main character Pipimi.
