Especia (エスペシア) is a Japanese idol group formed in June 2012. Originally starting off as a 9-member group, it then became a 6 member group, and is now down to 5 members. The Osaka-based group performs city pop/80s disco-inspired songs primarily produced by Schtein&Longer of SCRAMBLES, along with songs also produced by PellyColo and LUVRAW. Their visuals take cues from outdated high-end technology of the 80s. Read more about especia on Last.fm.
