preferably ones that have a mature sound to their singing (like for example, Kalafina and FictionJunction). I don't like groups that sound like a bunch of preteens and sing 'cutesy' songs.

I said girl groups, not soloists. ><: The latter three are soloists (whom I have all listened to before). But I'll give SCANDAL a listening to.

i second the scandal recommendations (and to everyone that recommended them, you're all awesome).

but i would also add stereopony, flip, and negoto. halcali isn't bad either, but they're more hip-hop/rap.

damn, I was gonna recommend AKB48 but you don't like cutesey songs u_u
well I know SPEED is an older j-pop group but I haven't given them a listen (this thread actually mad e me remember them again). If you want a jrock band, there's Exist Trace which is all female although only one vocalist most of the time.
Claris and Mell come to mind... but I don't know if Mell is one person question ... and Claris is just two so I don't know if they fit your criteria.

But I wouldn't describe that style as cute. Claris seems more... bubbly. blaugh

EDIT: I see you want groups instead of solo.
I still say try Alan out, you might end up liking her. smile

I don't really know any GROUPS that have that new age-y sound that Kalafina has because girl-groups in Japan are predicated on the idea of being "kawaii", so you'll be hard-pressed to find things outside of that. But I think that groups from 1970s/1980s Japan were a bit more sophisticated sounding and less sugary and nauseating than their contemporaries (ex: Candies, The Peanuts, Pink Lady). However, I do know groups and bands that have a female lead backed by male musicians. When you put a group of females together, it's usually always an idol group nowadays. I want to suggest ALI PROJECT or OOIOO, but those voices aren't exactly mature-sounding, are they?

I do like Zone, though. They have a mature sound.



P.S. Soloist Akiko Shikata makes Kalafina sound like AKB48, if you want to check her out. But if you're honestly looking for that mature feminine sound, it's easier to find a soloist or a male-dominated band fronted by a female.

HOME MADE KAZOKU, ONE OK ROCK, and UVERworld are some of my favorites. *cue British accent* They're certainly lovely~

Seconding these recommendations.


I'd say Tommy heavenly6 / the brilliant green.
Tokyo Jihen is good too.
MARIA, but they disbanded.

Japan has a better selection of solo artists though, tbh.
