wow. Marmalade is still around?
>>
>>10755256
Unfortunately
>>
>>10755256
What did she do?
>>
I think she’s just in that photo.

Tho I saw Reso is traveling somewhere and that new project SB is doing posted, if you want a conversation topic
>>
>>10755325
you trying to say they're doing a collab? why arent collabs more common in this niche.
>>
>>10755226
Nice to see the Aus scene thriving these days.
Amuse are very inspiring, Etude just released a new song, Melo have a big show coming, Faeble going up to Brisbane it’s cool!
>>
>>10755341
It’s sad Denpa and Dreamy are departing but the rest are staying strong.
>>
>>10755325
Reso must have so much money
>>
>>10755356
good for them, means they are can raise the standard of overseas idol and create
>>
>>10755226
Melopara is so cute
>>
>>10755325
new project from SB? Do you mean Redefyne? If so I have to say SB Martha and Alexis sound absolutely amazing together. The dancing was a little bit off, but theyre def a group im really hype to see
>>
>>10755494
Yeah they have a good potential, I feel like the dancing would be better live or if they filmed the dancing together
>>
>>10755494
When I say I was blown away I mean it, they all are such great soloists that I was expecting it to be great but wow, they blend so well together!
>>
>>10755494
I hope this is the first of many things that we get to see of them.

If some of you anons havent seen it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9KBbsoeK-E

Whites are ugly as fuck. I don’t understand why they even bother.
>>
>>10755579
Martha looks like old milk compared to the youthful members. I'm all for older idols but at least take care of yourself.
>>
What in the fresh fuck is going on
>>
>>10755579
Imagine thinking Alexis is white lmao
>>
>>10755579

someone release new music, we need a hit song

Salty white detected

>>10755980
Amuse have a new song, Etude have a new song, CITRUSPLUS have a new song and MeloParas new song will be out next month.

Go check them all out, I personally love Revolt revive
>>
>>10756010
revolt revive dropped a long time ago tho

Not wrong 7 months is a while ago, it still feels fresh to me
>>
>>10755980
But yeah…if you want new music just follow the Aussie idol scene.
They are dropping songs left and right
>>
>>10755559
Pretty late on seeing this, but on the topic of original songs, I would love one from these three. I hope it’s in the plans.

Speaking of, weren’t SB and Alexis going to write an original together? I wonder if it’s going to be a part of this project
>>
>>10756013
i hadnt heard of the first group but i really like their aesthetic. the original song sounds alright too.

new citrus song is awful though.
>>
>>10755490
melopara are cringe. every time i see one of their reels i shrivel up and die.
>>
>>10756010
how will melody parade release original music when they don’t even sing during their own performances? i can’t get behind the logistics of that
>>
>>10756101
They have sung? Did you go to 1st Parade they all sung.
>>
>>10756083
Yeah! Etude are very unrated, I hope they will gain more traction one day
>>
>>10756122
they sound shit while sitting still, can't imagine what they'll sound like while dancing.
>>
>>10756013
CTRP’s song would actually be pretty good if they had better, similar microphone quality and was better mixed. I like the instrumental but it’s poorly balanced and poorly mixed. They need to go back in and redo their recordings and find another mixer for both parts. It’s pretty unlistenable.
>>
>>10756130
They are fine in my opinion. Not stand out but listenable.
Marmalades singing cover was nice and heck Tea is in an idol company ?? Surely she can’t be bad at lest?
>>
>>10756134
'idol company' lmao.
>>
>>10756136
Actually idol companies don’t always hire for singing talent.
So idk I guess we will wait till next month
>>
>>10756137
You're really jumping through hoops here trying to wk
>>
>>10756139
I think cause part of me wants them to have a good go at it.
Then judge them instead of straight up expecting them to be shit?
>>
>>10756139
So yeah maybe I am jumpin hoops honestly haha
>>
>>10756130
>>10756137
>>10756145
i dont even know where anon got where they are even releasing an original song let alone in the middle of making one but you’d think after having multiple performances they would consider incorporating singing to their shows?
it seems really weak to me that they are still stuck with dancing with kiddy toy mics while the rest of the country is singing and danceing in their performances.
because honestly if all the australian groups were ranked, melopara would be at the bottom of all categories except costume and clout
>>
Austraila comm for new Florida comm lmfao
>>
>>10756145

Why can't more people have this mentality?
I don't understand why some groups get such intense hate for doing absolutely nothing.
Melopara isn't the only one of course
>>
>>10756429
ok? then name the groups
>>
>>10756429
when you have a well know scammer/bully in your group people are going to tend to not support you.
>>
Why are they all fat, greasy, and ugly?
>>10755226
>>
>>10756010
Where did melopara say they are releasing music?
>>
>>10756518
Because they are white.

Remember Vveil? Everyone kept attacking them for no reason.
>>
>>10756429
they do nothing alright, which makes me wonder why they have so many fans at all
>>
>>10756709
they definitely got a boost from tea's tiktok followers. maybe that's why they try to appeal to kids.
>>
>>10756596
because everyone wants to anonymously talk shit about each other so they can pretend to be friends irl. I agree with you though, nona.
>>
>>10755226
white bitches really need to stop doing this shit
>>
>>10756596
Because we're all too afraid of someone blacklisting us or having a meltdown if we talk too frankly about our opinions on twitter or discord.
>>
>>10756722
if the comm wasn't built on a bunch of whiny bitches who cant take even an ounce of concrit maybe we wouldn't feel the need to discuss anonymously.
telling someone they could improve is 'bullying.'

I don't see a single "helpful concrit" in this thread, but I do see a lot of bashing and speculation.

severely underrated
maybe their mc skills are shit but everything else is above standard
>>
>>10756552
i also dont remember them announcing anything. speaking of new music though, thoughts on amuse raising over $8k for their EP?
>>
>>10756166
now im curious, what would your ranking of the aus groups be?
>>
>>10756705
Funny that you brought that group back they finally released something https://youtu.be/aX9IpkDjvs8
>>
>>10756919
But that comes with the anonymity in any hobby or platform. The problem is even when good criticism is give outside of here you’re branded a hater or anti. There’s been plenty of time when good crit was given. Hell >>10756132 is one example.
>>
>>10756993
I think it’s well deserved. They’re good performers and their singles so far have been good.
>>
>>10757036
When has anyone been called a hater when giving unanonymous crit? I've seen plenty of instances recently where people will tell someone something sounds off or not good and what they should fix and the person will be thankful and go back and work on it.
Sounds like people here are too scared of coming off as a hater, but give it a try sometime and you might be surprised.
>>
>>10757042
I’ve told people off anonymous stuff that could be worked on. It’s almost always been met with
>it’s not that serious
>we don’t need feedback
>you’re just jealous
I’ve also seen people straight up as for advice then make every excuse to why they can’t implement it. Plus even when there IS constructive criticism here, people still go off and say exactly what I’ve said before. You clearly weren't around for the infamous cousin fucker rant.
>>
>>10757042
>>10757043
I think it’s an issue of skewed perspective to a degree. Groups focused on improving are way less likely to make a big deal out of concrit, while groups with thin skin will turn a molehill into a mountain over the simplest critique. Good groups and soloists aren’t nearly as discussed on this board, because there’s way less drama there and let’s face it, we all love a good bit of drama. Even upthread, ReDefyne got a few compliments before everyone started in on the Australian groups. It’s just how it is here.
>>

does anyone attend anime matsuuri? i know its a shit show but dreamcatcher will be performing there in july https://www.instagram.com/p/CdEQd95pZex
this might be a good promotional opportunity since idol fans will be showing up
>>
>>10756993
>>10756552
look at that they just announced it on their instagram. let’s hope they actually pull it off
>>
>>10758621
Most fans there to see Dreamcatcher are not thinking about original idols, nonnie. They're kpop fans who see overseas idols as cringe "cultural appropriation".

i have never heard of etude and faeble future could anyone give a debrief of them? ive heard of everyone else
>>
>>10758822

etude are an older au group.
they started off as a ll group and have always been one of the more popular groups.
they were one of the first groups to transition away from ll and are now releasing original music. they're pretty drama free and safe.

faeble are ex members of ll group mews. they were also one of the more popular groups but were pretty drama-ridden from what I can remember. they started moving away from ll after one of their members ria (now in citrus) started performing with ags102. mews is pretty much disbanded with most of the members doing other things. faeble do one-man cover lives that are pretty lackluster and often filled with too many guest acts to pad for time.

anyways. i honestly think the only redeemable groups there are in australia is amuse project and etude au. (watched series ai and was introduced to etude au from there)

neonism setlists get really boring and sometimes the original songs they release during shows are a bit iffy. everytime i watch a snippet from citrus plus or faeble future i wonder if they even practiced. anon from above is absolutely correct, faeble cant hold a proper show by themselves and needs guests to pad the runtime.
denpa is straight up unwatchable, id rather watch himes solo stream.
there are lots of other groups that are in australia but they have either never performed or are still in the cosplay phase or even worse just straight up cringe. youd think that being completely seperate from the rest of the international idol community that australian idols would be much more better but its the same if not worse than here.

let’s see what melody parade (and in turn faeble future) have in store. maybe they will redeem themselves.

Thoughts on A-kon's idol festival? It was invite only, so we can assume they thought highly of everyone asked. How do you feel about convention run showcases?

why does it feel like mimi never performs with prismic? i know she's done some, but they just announced akon and she won't be performing there

>>10760075
Am I the only one uncomfortable for them saying it's their first idol festival when TIF did events for them in the past? Slap in the face if you ask me
>>
>>10760741
Mimi has never seen to be too much into prismic? I believe she's starting her actual teacher career too so she might be stepping down.
>>
>>10760963
I feel the same way. Who's the event planner for the fest at a-kon?
>>
>>10760741
Not everyone can afford plane tickets right now for a weekend trip. It’s expensive.
>>
>>10755226
Crackers are so ugly damn
>>
>>10761027
Because these aren't actual idols with actual fans. They're just dance enthusiasts who cover idol dances. Actual idols have to be decently cute to be popular.
>>
>>10761029
>Actual idols have to be decently cute to be popular.

I can only assume the phrasing they used is because it's their first "in-house" planned/organized idol festival?

Most overweight idols were bullied into being underweight (i.e Wendy of Red Velvet) so finding multiple idols is a little hard. I think there's a Nmixx member that's on the thicker side, but that's about it for newer groups.

This woman is not fat. She's average weight by western standards.
>>
>>10761349
She's not quite fat, but she did gain a lot of weight because of steroid based or similar medication due to a neck injury. And the injury makes it extremely hard for her to practice and dance to get thin again.

She got popular when she was thin and Korean fans bully her for her weight gain.

There’s big angel, tho they’ve lost quite a bit of members. But yeah none of these kpop idols are actually fat, especially not Chaehyun.

Poccha/Pottya too. But both they and Big Angel tend to have gimmicky weight and food based main tracks.

>a-kon compensating performers
You're funny anon
>>
>>10761374
Idol activities internationally are always at a loss, and people know that going in.
>>
>>10761531
A-kon is notorious for not paying anyone. It has nothing to do with idols
>>
>>10761636
I hope that's not true cause if they plan to rival HolMat they better be compensated in SOME way. Especially if you're inviting people out of damn state to bring attention to your event.
>>
>>10761766
Ever since the new management switched over a couple of years back, a-kon has become nothing but a money grab. The previous con heads compensated everyone.
>>
>>10761766
as long as a-kon actually does what any of the idols want for lighting and sound, they'll be beating holmat easily for how they treat performers
>>
>>10761834
How does Holmat treat performers? I don't remember anyone having issues before?
>>
>>10761834
What did holmat do to treat their performers badly? I thought they had a party and booths and all
>>
>>10761862
the joke is that they suck at doing the lighting performers request after holmat asks what they want
>>
>>10761866
Tbf that might not be the staff and more so the tech team
>>
>>10761834
So you're saying the ability to sing is higher valued than being compensated for your time and services?

This is why no one takes this community seriously LMAO
>>
>>10762361
where did you guys get the idea that holmat compensates performers? cause they didn't
>>
The most Holmat does is give them a pass and booth.

Didn’t Holmat idol fest start as a glorified odottemita/cosplay fest anyway?
>>
>>10762373
As far as their first-time event, performers did get paid for performing at Holmat as well as on the second year. After that is when they started holding the pre-party for performers with catered food not to mention guest badges so yeah, Holmat does compensate performers even if its not in plain cash anymore.
>>
>>10762391
Same anon but also the free merch booth allows the performers to still make a profit at the end of the day so Holmat probably is the fest that best compensates and treats their performers out of anyone in this country so far. A*Idol is gonna need to step up and show its performers that it values them in this early stage of it's development to keep them coming back since they were the "worthy hand-picked".
>>
>>10762391
holmat staff is busy on here today
>>
>>10762436
No I'm just someone that's been privy to how the event has been running and stating the facts if people wanna say Holmat doesn't compensate well lol
>>
>>10762436
Say it ain't so, nona. Say it ain't so.
>>
>>10762442
For real! Name another convention that's done everything holmat has done so far. Of course it would be great to receive extra money too, but it's still a huge step up from other cons and events that baseline just get you into the event for free. Ugh
>>
>>10761330
Kangin and Shindong of Super Junior were genuinely big for guys. Everyone else is thin. Even idols that look "fat" are thin. Wendy from Red Velvet was never fat, and neither is Jeongyeon.
>>
>>10762391
they definitely didn’t pay people ever but I’ll agree with the other forms of compensation equaling out
>>
>>10762489
Well they definitely paid me $200 few years back :P

>>10762489
Uh...yes they did lol unless you were there too and they paid only certain groups which I doubt

Could someone in the Aus scene please tell me what the deal was with Punzie?
>>
>>10762952
pretty sure a private matter between her and mews blew up and went public because punzie said she got kicked out whatever it happened like two three years ago. she and the mews members kept fighting each other. punzie tried making a group but it failed horrifically because she was supposedly controlling and did a bunch of other things too. basically got herself a bunch of mental issues along the way bc mews members kept trying to get her doxxed etc
thought she was rebranding herself when she announced first step live but lmao
both sides were definitely in the wrong and this whole deal shouldve been solved ages ago if they all acted their age
>>
>>10762658
Nah bridges still there, but not a chance the companies would actually take someone form OS no matter how well they did in a comp. In reality there is no full time professional path in Aus for now

>>10763021
corrections: its been over 4 years since she was kicked out and Mews members have never tried to get her doxxed. She also had mental issue beforehand but the drama defiantly exasperated them
However, Someone (apparently she knows who and not in the scene?), keeps baiting her tiktok. she is mentally ill and should just be left alone as it just keeps getting her to bring old shit back up.
>>
>>10763044
oh then its definitely worse than i thought
punzie should just take a back seat and stop it with the scene then because shes just making it worse for herself
