1. : So for anyone unfamiliar with yourself, tell us a little bit about your backstory and how you ended up here.
Haruki – I was singing by solo in open mic at a small book shop, that time I met Wallaby(bass).
Then we played a 2 piece acoustic duo for a while.
Maybe it was 3,4 years ago. Also me and Nogi(drums), already played on another jam. session, one day Nogi came to the book shop. So we played by 3 piece style. That time we had a really good feeling, So We formed a band very naturally.

Haruki (vocals and guitar)
This video is the most important to restart my music career.
When I watched this video, I’ve already retired from music.
But I thought I wanna play the music again. I remember playing a guitar for the first time in a few years.
I knew passion was back to me at that moment.
This song put me on the path I’m still in today.
It taught me that there is no limit to musical expression.
I learned groove on the Rock music from this music.
When I play drums I’m keeping to take feel Rock groove of this music everytime.
