I wouldn’t call Omega Tribe pop and certainly not idols
They are more of a city pop, genre wise
I like them too, though - a pleasure for my new wave loving ear

Anyway, I think there are some idols who was indeed city pop artists (vidrelated for example), but not every city pop artist can be pop or idol, of course

i went through a massive phase 2016-2018…
now i'm more into late 90s/00s jpop.
>what idols/artists you listen to?
I was really fascinated by solo idols appearing towards the end of the bubble era who, unluckily for them, did not have much wide success as their predecessors simply bc the market shifted. like, Michiko Shimazaki, Rika Himenogi, Aoi Mizuno–all had great songs, which would have been hits if only they had debuted earlier. also i love the obscure girl groups that start popping up in the late 80s.

all time faves though have to be: Momoe Yamaguchi, Hiromi Iwasaki, Momoko Kikuchi, & Seiko and Akina ofc.

I couldn't have possibly found all the intoxicating city pop music i want. I'm certain I could find more. Actually I'm dying too.

Do you know any artists or tracks that match this?

There's something very comfy about 80s Jpop. I even kind of prefer it to contemporary Jpop, because the production quality sounds alot more unadulterated compared to the post-processed sound that plagues music today. Plus, they keep trying to make even Jpop into EDM these days. Sometimes even I want to listen to something more calm and soothing, not with constant bass in your ears.

Also, I just remembered how much I love Jun Togawa.
