Underrated Japanese Artists/Bands

Japanese Artists/Bands

1. Kikagaku Moyo

 If you like psychedelic music and you haven’t heard of these guys, you should stop what you’re doing and listen to them. They have a godlike sitar player, and their style blends a lot of psychedelic rock with folk influences. Masana Temples, their most recent album, was released last year.

2. DYGL 

I’m not sure how DYGL hasn’t stormed onto the indie rock scene yet. Their music is both catchy and well-written. Even though their fame in Japan is far greater than in the rest of the globe, indie lovers cannot afford to overlook these men.

3. No Buses 

A prospective foursome with only a few songs available on SoundCloud and YouTube, but they are excellent. They’re an indie-pop/rock band that’s just been around for a few years, and fans of Arctic Monkeys-style bands should undoubtedly check them out.

4. Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu

There’s ‘Pirate Metal,’ ‘Viking Metal,’ and now there’s ‘Samurai Metal,’ thanks to these trio. Gotsu-Totsu-Kotsu is best described in this way. 

Distinctive thrash metal band with ultra-catchy riffs, a lot of slap bass, and Samurai and Japanese mythology lyrics. All of them are sung in Japanese, which works remarkably well with their music’s flow.

5.Grimm Grimm

The Koichi Yamanoha album will inspire you to dream. The gentle guitar passages are infused with an ethereal vibe and folk elements mingled with synthesizers. 

This is all done by a single man who can capture his listeners with the spirit of Japanese folk music and create a euphoric vibe—the perfect balance of dark and emotional.

Honourable mentions – Japanese Artists/Bands

Outer Limits / The Scene of Pale Blue(1987) 

Signal Fire – BOW WOW, This song is from 1977 

I don’t think this is the finest song on the album, but I enjoy Loudness’s work.

Cool tunes too

And one more for today.
