That Is New To Me: xoxo(Kiss&Hug) EXTREME

Does anyone that reads this remember the good old days of Progressive Rock? Remember Genesis, Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull. If you answered yes, friend, have I got a treat for you. Shoot, even if you have never heard of those group I mentioned you will probably enjoy this idol unit. Let’s have a look at xoxo(Kiss&Hug) EXTREME.

First off I should say that the reason I brought up those old prog-rock groups is because this unit is a bit different than other units we talk about. Most are pretty heavy musically with all the yelling and hollering going on. This group harkens back to the days when prog was something to experience. Now you can experience that same feel, but with an idol twist. Here is a song from one of their shows.

Man, that is some good stuff.

As the title says this is new to me, but that does not mean that the group itself is new. Their Twitter opened in January 2017, and they already have two singles out. It seems like they are moving right along. How about a look at the members, who also have a regular radio show, 下北FM「キスエクの もっと!プログレッシブ!」

    I have the feeling though, that there was a former (same?) unit with the name XOXO Kiss&Hug, without the EXTREME part. Maybe a reason why I never heard of them before.

    Best thing: In one of the videos Moe is wearing a shirt of Bellha. Easily found my favourite member in the
