Miki Furukawa (古川 美季 Furukawa Miki?, professionally written as フルカワミキ) (born February 19, 1979) is a Japanese musician. From 1995 to 2005 she was the bass player and vocalist of the indie rock band Supercar. She released her first solo record in 2006.

Biography[edit]

Originating from Aomori Prefecture, Miki Furukawa placed an advertisement in a local magazine seeking fellow musicians in 1995, leading to the formation of the rock band Supercar. After a successful, ten-year career, Supercar disbanded in 2005 in order for the members to pursue different interests.

In 2006 Furukawa released her first solo album, Mirrors, featuring a mixture of guitar-based rock songs and electronic dance-pop. Bondage Heart (2008) pointed in a new direction, with heavy influences from post-punk, psychedelic rock and noise, whereas Very (2010) was a mostly electropop-oriented record. In December 2009, Vocaloid developer AH Software used voice samples from Furukawa to create the software SF-A2, codenamed "miki". In 2011, Miki Furukawa and former Supercar bandmate Nakamura Koji formed the band called Lama. Lama jump-started their formation with a single entitled "Spell", which has been used as an opening theme for the anime No. 6. The single "Fantasy" was used as the ending theme for the anime Un-Go.
