Since their pure DIY beginnings in 1981...Osaka, Japans Shonen Knife have been building a faithful following of music enthusiasts and the alternative rock elite. Heavily influenced by 1960s girl groups, pop bands, The Beach Boys, and early punk rock bands such as the Ramones, the trio crafts stripped-down songs with simplistic lyrics sung both in Japanese and English. Their relentless journey secured the bands place as one of the pioneer ambassadors of Japanese rock music and culture on the international stage.

The band features original members (and sisters) Naoko on vocals and guitar, and Atsuko on bass and vocals...and introduces their newest member, Risa, on drums and vocals.  In 2019 the trio charges ahead towards their 4th decade of international touring and recording with their 19th studio release Sweet Candy Power on Good Charamel Records in North America and Europe.

Naoko describes the Sweet Candy Power album:

This album is homage to my favorite 1960s and 1970s rock music. Also I put all of enjoyment, entertainment, joyful and delightful from me into songs. Inspired by my experience during tours and my daily life, I wrote lyrics with fun and a little bit of ironical viewpoint. I hope people get happy through this album."

Sweet Candy Power features 10 brand new songs including the first single/video Dizzy and the title track Sweet Candy Power.

Shonen Knife continues to tour worldwide. Over the years, they shared the stage with bands such as Nirvana, Redd Kross and Sonic Youth, offering performances at Londons All Tomorrows Parties, Austins Fun Fun Fun Fest, Fuji Rock Festival, Pop Montreal and Lollapalooza. In support of their newest release, the girls will be touring in Europe in May/June, including the Primavera Sound festival, and embark on a 2019 North American tour this fall.
