Name
Ucary Valentine

What do you do?
Artist

Where are you from?
Takarazuka / Hyogo

What’s the best gig you’ve ever been to?
The XX - I saw them on the White Stage at Fuji Rock Festival, in 2013. Firstly, I love their musicianship a lot. Secondly, I love their light show and laser beams which really suited the dark music. It was very beautiful and moved me emotionally.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
New Wave and electro music. The era of CSS, Karen O and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. I have been listening to them since I was a first-grader at junior high school.

Of all the venues you’ve played, which is your favourite?
Tsukimirukimiomofu - in Aoyama and Nohgakukaikan, Osaka. I only played in Nohgakukaikan once, but it was cool to play Noh stage. The sound was really great.

If you could be on the line up with any artist in history?
Amy Winehouse - I would have loved to have seen her live, but sadly didn’t get the chance.

If you could spend an hour with anyone from history?
I would love to watch Mozart writing his music. I don’t think one hour would be long enough. I found classical music recently and when I listened to ‘Requiem’, I wondered how that music was made.

Your greatest unsung hero or heroine in music?
Sevdaliza - a female artist I discovered on YouTube and the song “Marilyn Monroe” is really cool.
