Hmmm... from the samples and PV, they seem like quite a chill band, I'm definitely interested in hearing more. Some of the samples I didn't particularly like, but most I did. I think I'll pick up their new album, I'm in the process of buying quite a few albums right now, may as well try something new.

Thanks 👍

I first heard of this band when I heard the theme song (around the world) at the end of the Katori Shingo drama Sayuuki. It's a popular song.

Yeh, I read that "Around the world" is an OST of "Sayuuki" :)
