Piano-playing and singing artist Natsuko Nikko releases new artist photos and announces her first exhibition!

In 2024, Natsuko Nikko, whose 15th anniversary "Natsuko Nikko 15th Anniversary -Space Friendship-" has started in earnest, has released a new artist photo that symbolizes the keyword "Space Friendship" for this year!
The photo was taken by photographer Kenta Aminaka. A new visual that captures the eye is born, with a location that looks like the surface of the moon, styling reminiscent of a space suit, and a line of sight staring at you from behind a clear helmet. This is a perfect finish for Natsuko's eclipse, which has opened up a variety of possibilities for her anniversary year.

Furthermore, Natsuko Hikoku recently announced the existence of five major projects for "Space Friends Swimming". Immediately after, they announced the first part of the project and announced that they would be holding an uncharted band tour called ``Area Mirai,'' which would consist only of previously unreleased songs, and the band immediately sold out one after another.

Amid high expectations from fans, she has announced the holding of her second exhibition, ``Area Past'' - What Made Natsuko the Eclipse, her first ever exhibition.

This exhibition will feature actual items and costumes used in past visuals, an area that recreates the music production room, treasured footage, and lyrics, focusing on Natsuko's accomplishments from the age of 17 until now. It will be a special opportunity for all of us to see the presence of these people.

─ Natsuko Solar Eclipse Comment
A messy lyric notebook from when I wrote that song, a handwritten storyboard from when I devised that music video, a dictionary full of markers and sticky notes, numerous stage costumes I wore on past tours, photos, videos, mysterious notes... .
When we dug up the traces of our 15 years of activities, we found that there were more "things" left behind than we had expected that were deeply imbued with the passion of the times. Shouldn't you show these off on your anniversary year, when you'll be celebrating with lots of friends? That's why I came up with the idea for this exhibition.
In the pure white space of Lampzaka Gallery, my past 15 years, mixed inside and out, are scattered all over the place. How many pieces of "Area's past" can you find in 8 days?

With the slogan "Space Friendly Swimming", there is no doubt that it will become even more exciting in the future. Let's look forward to the next report.

<Natsuko Solar Eclipse Profile>
Born May 8, 1991 in Hanamaki City, Iwate Prefecture.
Started playing the piano at the age of 9 and writing songs at the age of 12. From the age of 17, she started full-scale music activities based in Morioka as "Nisshoku Natsuko". The meticulously crafted lyric world and composition techniques that sway the heartstrings have attracted attention, and have appeared in many large festivals. Released in 2021, "Anti-Freeze" was selected as a prize-winning work at the 14th CD Shop Awards 2022, and in recent years he has also written many new movie theme songs and commercial music. Nisshoku Natsuko's dense music that she creates one after another knows no bounds in creativity, and her musical ability and performance, including her unique composition style that expresses guitar, bass, and sometimes even percussion parts such as drums with a single piano, are outstanding. It goes beyond the imagination and framework of a piano-playing artist. Strength, weakness, sharpness, ephemeralness, the piano music that runs at full speed pierces the listener's heart and provides a unique musical experience.
