Follow Friday: Wonder egg

It's been awhile since we've done a Follow Friday, huh!

It's always fun wandering the cyberspace and finding an awesome new band, don't you think?

Well, one of our newest finds is Wonder egg, a wondrous (excuse the pun) band of the rock/pop genre.

Wonder egg consists of five members.

The current band members (from left to right) are Yu~dein, DJ Shachou, Yuki, Yone and Kimukimu.

The first three members are Yuki (vo), Yone (gt) and DJ Shachou (DJ) and are the founding members of Wonder egg.

We'd recommend this band to those who enjoy music from groups like UVERworld, flumpool, Ellegarden, GreeeeN and Remioromen.

The band has a softer rock sound but are still very upbeat. Another unusual twist is that they also have their own DJ who adds a unique flavor to their music.

Wonder egg is still a fairly new band, performing for the first time on April 22, 2009 at Shinjuku MARZ. Their first live performance was shortly after their formation in the same month.

Wonder egg members will also occasionally have street lives in addition to their live house performances.

The members also run their own online radio show called「We 家の食卓」(We at the home dining table) along with a video series called 「Wonder egg のくっちゃべり」(Wonder egg's noisy chatter).

The shows feature the band members, and the Noisy Chatter series mostly focuses on the antics of Yone, Yuki and DJ Shachou (along with some beer, usually some good food and an incredibly cute dog!).

The band's first single, 「光ヒラク」(Spreading Light), was released later that year in September 2009. In commemoration of their first independent project, they held their 「WONDER MARKET」event at Roppongi's morph-tokyo.

A second single, 「naked world」 followed in October 2010.

A PV, 「想い」(Thoughts, Affection), was also released with their「naked world」single.

For someone who is looking for fun and upbeat rock, Wonder egg is definitely a band to check out!

Those of you wanting to send fan mail their way, their email is wonder---egg@live.jp. They're a friendly bunch, so don't be shy!

You can also tweet to Yuki, DJ Shachou or Yone to tell them how much you love them and their work.

What do you think of Wonder egg? I personally like how upbeat their music is, and their lives also make them seem like a fun bunch to enjoy having a good time with.
