Nearing 10 years of activity, Minus Jinsei Orchestra is a band long needing coverage on JROCK NEWS. We will introduce them to you before going into detail on their upcoming album!
Minus Jinsei Orchestra debuted in 2008 and was active until they went on hiatus in 2016. They started back up again in 2017 with the release of a mini-album and a single. The band is made up of vocalist Kuriyama “HaL” Yes, guitarists Kuroya “YUKKE” nora and Yazawa “Organic” motohal, bassist Ogawa “Hong Kong” Kotaro, and drummer Yokota “Namamushi” Hikaruson. Their music is mainly synth-pop with a mix of alternative and punk sound.
Keeping up their musical creativity, the band will release their newest album Sono Kokoro Wa (その心は.) on March 7. It will include twelve tracks that follow with their upbeat melodies.
In addition, the band recently released the music video for the track O Make no Jinsei that is featured on the album. This song plays a trick on us with its bubbly tune, while the video shows the members laying on pills, looking distressed as they begin to consume them in handfuls. The shadowy lighting adds an eerie effect that has us thinking this song is not as cheery as it sounds. You can view the video below.
Here are the latest looks for each individual member!
