NEGOTO is a four-piece, all-girls rock band formed by Sachiko Aoyama (vocal/key), Mizuki Masuda (Gt), Yu Fujisaki (Ba) and Sayako Sawamura (Dr), who were all born in the 90’s.
The band is recognized by their fantastical pop-rock sounds engrained with a grungy, aggressive alternative rock sound, setting them apart from other girl bands and earning them the reputation as the “leaders of a new generation of all-girl rock bands”.
NEGOTO’s beginnings trace back to 2008, when the girls won the special recognition award in a music competition festival for teenagers called “SENKOU RIOT.”
In the finals, NEGOTO performed their original song, “LOOP,” in front of a 6000 crowd.
They subsequently made their major label debut in 2011, with their first single picked up as a high-profile TV commercial song for the major mobile carrier, au,
capturing them into instant fame and popularity in Japan.
Further releases in 2012 and 2015 also saw their songs picked as theme songs for popular anime titles such as <Gundam> and <Gintama>.
NEGOTO has released 9 singles, 2 mini albums and 3 full albums to date. Since debut they have been regulars in many major festivals in Japan such as Summer Sonic etc.
