Yohio is a bishonen visual kei artist of Swedish descent who can shred like it’s nobody’s business --he also has a voice like a beautiful golden cherub wrapped in velvet diapers. Ever since he began performing in 2009, he has developed a bit of a cult following in Japan. His first solo album, Reach the Sky, was officially released last week.
Yohio’s first single, Sky Limit, is actually pretty fantastic -- I wasn’t expecting to like it this much. I only moderately dig visual kei, but I'm really curious about checking out his album. If the rest of the tracks in it are this good, then it's definitely a keeper. Below the jump is another clip of the performer being FABULOUS MAX.
