Passcode premiered a new video on Oct 29, 2021 featuring their new false cord vocalist Emile.
PassCode fans are called "Hackers", and their lives are called "ENIGMA".
One of the things I have discovered about Japanese music (and modern music in general) is that you can like a band just as much for their style as you do for their music. This is especially true for me with this band. They have that Doc Martin look about them.
When asked "What is it that you like about PassCode?"
I answered: "I guess the main thing about passcode is I've never heard of a dedicated false cord screamer in a vocal quartet before!"
Vocal quartets are generally reserved for old Motown style music, it's not even "on my radar" these days Their sound completely blew me away because it was nothing I had ever heard before."
PassCode is a Japanese Idol Girl Group from Osaka. Known for their energetic stage presence they are often compared to the all-male "electronicore" group Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. The majority of PassCode's songs are originally titled in English, and the few songs that aren't are English words transcribed in katakana.
Yuna Imada retired in August 2021 due to declining health. Before a month had passed the group announced that they had recruited Emily Arima, who had been Ladybaby's "screamer" until that group's disbandment.
