The group consists of the four Miss FLASH 2011 winners – Kuroda Arisa (23), Saito Marina (19), Suzuki Fumina (21), and Nito Misaki (18) – plus five additional girls who failed to advance in the competition but were recognized for their potential. Those girls are Ishihara Miyu (19), Otsu Koto (23), Shiina Ayumi (20), Shizuka (19), and Horiguchi Anna (18).

For their first single, the 9 members have recorded two songs. The title track is described as a cute electropop tune, while the B-side is a dance number called “SPY GAME.” Three different jacket designs are available.
