THE 抱きしめるズ (THE DAKISHIMERUZU)
Rock, Punk Rock
In the year 2007, the band THE 抱きしめるズ (THE DaKISHIMERUZU) was created in Tokyo by guitarist Taiga, who then invited drummer Yuusuke. After a short time they met bassist Takashi (who was in the former band of Taiga) and vocal Hiroyuki at Yuusuke’s university and with both of them joining “THE 抱きしめるズ” was formed. In September 2009, the band released their first album “脳内デート” (nounai date), which even climbed up at rank 2 in the Tower Records Indie Charts. Their second album “I wanna be your boyfriend” was released in November 2010. That all was followed by touring, many events as well as taking part in the OTODAMA summer festival 2012. For the current year 2013, the band plans the release of their third album and much other activity.
THE 抱きしめるズ have a straight-forward sound with fast guitars and drums, framing base lines and powerful vocals. They are mixing rock with punk elements, while their lyrics are Japanese with some English elements. Contrary to their vigorious songs, they also produce ballads like “少年H” (shounen H), which almost has some elements of pop combined with their rock sound. By the way, their music videos are always fun, don’t miss them! You can clearly hear and see, that those guys have fun at what they are doing – let’s be curious about their future activities.
