This Is Love Psychedelico - Love Psychedelico

Kumi and Naoki met at university in Tokyo and connected immediately. They both had insatiable appetites for the music of the British Invasion and ‘70s classic rock. Their synergy became Love Psychedelico, a band that’s already extremely popular in Japan, Hong Kong and Taiwan, and is now breaking on shores of North America with an album that packages some of their strongest material. If you’re a fan of Puffy AmiYumi's bubblegum, Love Psychedelico offers something a little stronger to chew on. Kumi, who lived in San Francisco for a time, floats easily between English and Japanese; giving Love Psychedelico more lyrical punch than the simple catch phrases J-Pop has become notorious for.
