Naoko describes the “Sweet Candy Power” album:
“This album is homage to my favorite 1960’s and 1970’s rock music. Also I
put all of enjoyment, entertainment, joyful and delightful from me into
songs. Inspired by my experience during tours and my daily life, I wrote
lyrics with fun and a little bit of ironical viewpoint. I hope people get happy
through this album. “Sweet Candy Power” features 10 brand new songs including
the first single/video “Dizzy” and the title track “Sweet Candy Power”.
Shonen Knife continued to tour worldwide, sharing the stage with bands

London’s All Tomorrow’s Party, Austin’s Fun Fun Fun Fest, Fuji Rock Festival,
