Aphrodite is an idol unit that has been on my radar for a while, thanks again to Pure Idol Heart. He always brings the good stuff. Anyway, they have kind of been on the back burner of things to write about. Now they have released a new MV for the song MySweetBach.
First lets watch the MV.
WOW, what a great tune. Just the kind of thing I like. A somewhat gothic aesthetic combined with neo-classical symphonic music. It is just great. Similar to JyuJyu without the overt darkness.
Here is a short primer on the group.
It looks like the idol group is only a small part of the Aphrodite Project. The Project itself seems to be actively recruiting, I don’t know if they are going to form a second group or what. I guess we will find out in time. From what I can tell the group Aphrodite itself has been around since 2014. Their YouTube channel is pretty empty though. Before all the activity in the last month there was only one video posted, and that seems to be from their first one-man live. Information on this group is not easy to come by. They do have a CD out, information is at the bottom of the article.

Their website is pretty sparse and I don’t know if there will be much added to it. But you might as well go take a look.

Their CD is a 3 track offering. I believe all the songs are available to listen to in live version on their YouTube channel.
