listen hear! CHAI want you to take "ACTION"

Toshio Nakaiso

  listen hear!  spotlights a song we like and think you will too!

Japanese quartet CHAIis made up of identical twins MANA (lead vocals and keys) and KANA (guitar), drummer YUNA, and bassist-lyricist YUUKI. Their vibrantly catchy new single "ACTION" was a response to watching the Black Lives Matter protests unfold across America and the world in June of 2020 while the band was in Japan. Their new album, "WINK", comes out May 21st on Sub Pop

“Seeing how the world came together during the protests really moved me,” said YUUKI. “I wanted to dedicate that song to the year of action.” The band further elaborates: “The world as we know it has changed,  but even with that, it's still a world where nothing really changes. Wouldn't it be wonderful if there more ACTION rooted in happiness? Be the change that you want to see!...I'm going to be the pioneer in seeing the world I want to see, meeting the people I want to meet! We start off by expressing the fun in ACTION with this music video♡ Why don't you join us?! It's that type of song♡.”
