Japanese trauma techno pop band URBANGARDE has released the music video for “Shoujo Gannen” (“Girls Year One”), the lead track from their new album Ai to Gensou no URBANGARDE (“URBANGARDE of Love and Fantasy”), released on November 21.
With the Heisei Era coming to a close on April 30, 2019, URBANGARDE proclaims the next era of Japanese history will be defined as the “Shoujo Era”. For the “Shoujo Gannen” music video, the band brings in 4-member dance performance unit Atarashii Gakkou no Leaders as special guests who break free of the classroom and take over the streets in front of the National Diet Building.
