By now you’re probably aware that, courtesy of the lover of most things Japanese – and soon to be in Japan* – Celeste (Hi, Celeste!), I’ve been exposed to a variety of Japanese pop and rock music. And because I have a blog, you have, too.
Believe it or not, I stumbled across this Japanese band without the aid of Celeste. I have no idea how, when, or where I saw them on the Intertubes, but I did, liked what I heard, and thought “Hmm – I wonder if I can put some of their songs on the blog and not have people running away screaming.”
So here’s Japanese rock band Cymbals. If you’re wondering whether or not it’s worth your time pressing “play” and listening to something you’ve never heard before for a few minutes, then I’ll give you a short description and leave it up to you:
Over to you, dear reader.
Cymbals – “8am Escape Plan” (2003)
I like that. It’s fun.
And I like this, too:
Cymbals – “Rally” (2003)
Cymbals – “Do You Believe In Magic?” (2003)
(*Celeste will be studying there.)
