After going on hiatus after a performance on a music TV show last New Year’s Eve, we found out on the 2nd that singer songwriter YUI (26) would restart her activities in the rock band “FLOWER FLOWER.” Drastically cutting her long hair off, the now short haired blonde YUI, who is the main vocalist in the above mentioned band, will make the first official debut at the rock fest “Japan Jam 2013,” which will take place on May 4th in Tokyo – Shin-Kiba STUDIO COAST.

?????????????????????????“YUI”????????????????????YUI????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????YUI?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
YUI, who has said things like “I’ve found something new that I’d like to challenge,” and “I’m not thinking of making a comeback as ‘YUI’,” before her hiatus, is starting off again as a band. By calling out to the musicians that she herself respects and loves, the band was formed. From the start of this year, they started doing studio sessions and from last month, they started playing secret lives in various places across the country, and as she is steadily preparing (for their debut), YUI said “With these members, once we produce a sound together, I thought that I could genuinely enjoy music this way. With our different ideas and play styles, the potential of our insight and music just naturally expands.” It seems like the results are extremely satisfying.

For the band name, she put in all her feelings of, “I wanted to pick a name that wasn’t flashy, but was natural. There were probably a lot of cool names that I could’ve picked, but purposely, instead of doing that, I wanted to pick a name that seemed effortless and relaxing, and had a natural feeling injected into it. I want to express powerful and interesting ideas freely.” and thus named the band what it is.

YUI, short blonde hair & headed towards restarting her musical activities with a band! “I thought that I could genuinely enjoy music.”

???????????????????????????YUI???FLOWER FLOWER????????????????????????????????????
It has been made clear that singer/songwriter, YUI, who put her musical activities on hiatus at the end of last year, will restart her activities under the band called “FLOWER FLOWER.”

??11??????????????????????YUI?????GyaO!????????MESSAGE from YUI????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????1????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????
In November of last year, YUI shocked her fans by suddenly announcing that she was putting her musical activities on hold. After that, in the video that was released on GyaO! “MESSAGE from YUI,” she revealed frankly that the reason for her hiatus was that “I didn’t want to show people a broken spirited me,” “My spirit was broken, so to speak, and I ended up at the point where I couldn’t even sing anymore,” and it became a huge topic of discussion. However, only a few days after her hiatus in January of this year, she lead her band members to the Kansai region and did some last minute performances in the live houses there. The new short-haired appearance that she showed off after drastically cutting off her long black hair became widely known through certain parts of the news, surprising her fans once again.

This time, she is going to restart her activities with that band. They will be performing at the live event “Japan Jam” which will take place on May 4th in Tokyo at Shin-Kiba Studio Coast, and it will be their first official debut in front of fans. Additionally, they are also scheduled to perform at the outdoor fest “TOKYO METROPOLITAN ROCK FESTIVAL 2013” which will be held on May 26th in Tokyo at Shin-Kiba’s Wakasu Park. It seems that at both these venues she will be performing, not under the name “YUI,” but 100% under this band.

Also, concerning the band name, FLOWER FLOWER, she commented that, “I wanted to pick a name that wasn’t flashy, but was natural. There were probably a lot of cool names that I could’ve picked, but purposely, instead of doing that, I wanted to pick a name that seemed effortless and relaxing, and had a natural feeling injected into it. I included all my feelings of wanting to express powerful and interesting ideas freely into the name.”

Singer/songwriter YUI, who went on hiatus at the end of 2012, is restarting her musical activities as the band FLOWER FLOWER.

??????????????????????????????YUI?????????????FLOWER FLOWER?????????????????????????????????????YUI?????????????????????????????????????????????????????VOX????????????????????????????????????
Based on the live pictures that were released to the public, the band FLOWER FLOWER, where YUI, now with a boyish blonde hairstyle, is in charge of vocals and guitar, is also composed of a bassist, a drummer and a keyboardist. In the pictures, YUI is playing an acoustic guitar, but from the fact that what is thought to be a Fender Jaguar or Jazzmaster, as well as a VOX amp are set up behind her, it seems that we can anticipate a rock type of sound as well.

Furthermore, as of March, they have already performed secret lives in various places around the country. We are also able to confirm that on the keyboard that the band’s keyboardist plays, there is a logo sticker that has the band name “FLOWER FLOWER” written on it.
