Recent Press/Radio

John Kennedy (Radio X) “Fierce!”
Jon Solomon (WPRB) “This is GREAT. So much fun.”
Dani Charlton (Amazing Radio) RECORD OF THE WEEK “The first tasters are Akimahenka and Anata Ga Fall In Love Shita No Ha Watashi Ga Kirai Na Onnanoko, and even if you don’t understand the lyrics, you can probably catch their drift. Turn it up as loud as you possibly can.”

Emi Morimoto (X Shonen Knife) “When I first watched their show, I couldn’t help moving my body and was in the front row of the crowd at the live house in OSAKA. Their cute looks and crazy performance won my heart. After that, I heard that they were 10 years my junior at the music circle of the Ritsumeikan University in KYOTO. The fact made my fondness of them grew bigger and bigger. Their music is splendid, not to mention their individual personalities and musicianship, too. It’s rare for bands in Kyoto to use the local dialect in songs, and especially rare for young musicians. Now, most musicians tend to move to TOKYO. But Otoboke Beaver are based in KYOTO and proud of that. It’s time for them to export their music to the world. People in the UK will certainly become their captive!! I hope Otoboke Beaver will become a bridge between Kyoto and the World. “
