Hello! I've recently started listening to lots of 80s Japanese music. Akina Nakamori is def my favorite so far. I really like the sound of her albums Bitter&Sweet and D404ME. I've listened to lots of other artists like Kyouko Koizumi, Yu Hayami, Minako Honda, Naoko Kawai, and Naomi Kawashima. They're all good, but none of them quite have that same powerful voice and electronic composition of songs like Akina. Can anyone help narrow my search? Or maybe there aren't any artists that similar... Please let me know! Thanks!
