Describing themselves as “electro future-pop” on record their music is a melody-driven, 80s-tinged indie-electro-pop fusion. Live BDY_PRTS sound is coupled with a unique and striking visual identity, aided by of the otherworldly and genre-defying costumes designed with visual artists Urara Tsuchiya and Lesley Anne Hepburn.
