|A sample of a cover song by Alice☆Clara|
"Don't say "lazy"", composed by Oomori Shouko
Alice☆Clara (ｱﾘｽ★ｸﾗﾗ) professionally known as ClariS (クラリス) was an utaite duo, consisting of Clara and Alice, active from 2009 till 2010, starting with a cover of "STEP TO YOU" and ending with an original song, "Kimi no Yume wo Miyou".
In September 2010, they signed to SME Records and released their debut single "Irony" in October 2010, which was used as the opening theme to the anime Ore no Imouto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai.
Clara is depicted with slightly wavy hair and no bangs wearing pink items, and Alice is drawn with straight hair with bangs and shown wearing blue items. The crescent moon is a motif to represent Clara, and the sun for Alice. However, they want to stay anonymous since they are still high school students and want to focus on their school studies.
