FEMM Drop New Video, Announce Japan Expo Appearance and Reveal That A Master of Laser Tech Will Join Them in London
New Tokyo’s electronic pop duo FEMM have released another technologically impressive music video ahead of their EU and UK tour this July. The pair also announce that laser artist YAMACHANG, responsible for the music video’s impressive visuals, will be joining the sentient mannequins for the London performances at Boston Music Room and Hyper Japan. Plus, FEMM will add a further date to the tour with an appearance at Japan Expo in Paris, the largest celebration of Japanese pop culture outside of Japan. FEMM’s tour merch designs have also been revealed.
Brand-new video ‘Falling For A Lullaby’ has just been released. The song is produced by Jenna Andrews, the songwriter responsible for k-pop mega hit “Butter” by BTS. Featuring a pounding, cyberpunk synth bassline and super-sweet pop vocals, it has become one of FEMM’s most defining tracks and is one of the duo’s most streamed songs.

Previous FEMM music videos have been highlighted by the likes of Vice, Noisey and DAZED for their choreography and technological achievements. 'Falling For A Lullaby' pushes FEMM’s live performance limits further by featuring the work of Japan’s premier name in laser art YAMACHANG, who will be joining FEMM on their EU & UK Tour, alongside long time FEMM collaborator BRDG and AVC, all working in real-time. FEMM’s RiRi and LuLa are encapsulated in structures of light, as lasers track and project spirals on the duo and beams of luminosity fill the stage. Meanwhile the background is filled with LED screens displaying white noise, all coming together to visually represent repressed emotions that wriggles within a heart on a summer’s night. FEMM may first appear as a pop group, but this video once again shows their unsettling edge.
‘Falling for a Lullaby’ was originally released in 2017 as a B-side on FEMM’s double A side single ‘My Revolution / Konyaha Boogie Back’, which featured members from EDM group FAKY as well as Yup’in. The track has been remastered and features on FEMM’s third album Tokyo Ex Machina, released on CD for the first time this summer from JPU Records. Hear it live for the first time in Europe and the UK this month as part of FEMM’s 2022 EU & UK Tour.
FEMM at JAPAN EXPO:
RiRi and LuLa will hit the YUZU stage at 12:30pm and will be signing autographs at the Amazing Stars 3 area from 4:15 - 5:15pm on the same day.
