Born in Yokohama in 1995, singer/songwriter/poetry rapper/producer HARU NEMURI (春ねむり) started her first band at the age of 17, playing the keyboard and synths. Since suddenly grabbing the microphone at 21, she has been performing under the moniker of HARU NEMURI, the “ultimate weapon” (最終兵器), writing all her music and lyrics herself.
Her debut EP Goodbye, Youth Phobia (さよなら、ユースフォビア) was released in 2016. Shortly after, all her shows in Japan sold out quickly and she was invited to play various festivals before 2017 saw the release of a remix album and a sophomore EP, as well as performances at events like Rock in Japan Festival. That year she also wrote and produced the main title to the film The Eternal Spring.
But all that could not prepare the world for what she would do on her debut album titled Haru to Shura (春と修羅) which came out in April 2018. Mixing elements of alternative rock, post rock, (post) hardcore, spoken word and rap music, she created a unique, forward thinking experimental version of modern music, a dense fusion of the quirky qualities of J-Pop, the intensity of post-hardcore and everything in between all at the same time.
