Perfume - Techno Pop

Perfume is a name of a J-Pop 3 female vocals group. "Polyrhythm" was a hit song last year. The music genre is Techno Pop (Electropop). They are like dolls have been in Hiroshima. Their dance is so unique like robots or dolls. They are so cute (Kawaii).
Talking of electropop, YMO (Yellow Masic Orchestra ) was a very famous electropop group in '70. (The members are Ryuichi Sakamoto, Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi.) YMO was so sensational at that time. The sound was original and mordern in Japan. The group becomes famous in the world. Almost Japanese have listened to "Rydeen" that was smash hit. I like "Tong Poo " personally.
In '90 TM Net Work, the leader of the group, Tetsuya Komuro who was hit maker and talented producer, was popular for electronic sound. He composed for other Japanese artists. Almost songs became No.1 hits.
Now Perfume, techno pop music is popular. New single ,"Love the world " become No.1 hit in Japan.
