There are at least two groups using this name:
1) capsule (Japan), an electronic duo on their own label, Contemode.
2) Capsule (Miami, Florida), a hardcore/screamo band currently signed to Robotic Empire.
1) capsule is an electronic duo, formed in Kanazawa, Japan in 1997 by Yasutaka Nakata (co-producer, art director) and Toshiko Koshijima (vocals). They are part of the shibuya-kei movement that started in 1990, most notably by Pizzicato Five. In March of 2001, they made their first single with Yamaha Music, 'Sakura'. Their music contains elements of bossa nova, ye-ye, nu jazz, lounge, breakbeat, and most recently, electro house. In 2003, Yasutaka created his own label, Contemode, and has produced other artists on the label, such as Perfume, COLTEMONIKHA, NAGISA COSMETIC and Meg. Nakata has described the music produced by Contemode acts as "an accessory to fashion", and the band's music can often be found for sale in fashion boutiques in Shibuya, Japan.
2) Capsule is a hardcore band from Miami Beach. Started in 2004 by Eric Hernandez & Colin Smith, the band tours the United States frequently. They released a couple records on Dippy Records and in 2008, Robotic Empire released the critically acclaimed “Blue” on 12” vinyl and CD.
