Suchmos is a Japanese rock'n'roll band that has been active since 2013. Most of the members were born in 1990's. They released their second studio album "The Kids" in 2017 January. It sold over 150,000 copies. I believe the one tells us they're still on the way of growing up.

Music All Written by Suchmos

Why did I say like thus? I felt their frustration and bad feeling toward the valuation when I listened to the songs.

Some said that Suchmos's songs were categorized as City Pops. However, like most of rock bands do so, Suchmos also plays what they truly feel good. In other words, that categorizing is kind of too rough.

"The Kids" includes a variety of music, like acid jazz, black music and rock'n'roll. I really think it is difficult to categorize all theirs as City Pops.

By the way, when I first listened to the "Stay Tune," I wondered they were going to be Japan-made Maroon 5.


When men are young, they need a lot of nutrition for growing up, and eat well like a glutton. Suchmos is also young as need suck in a lot of kinds of music. Someday, their music style would be completed somehow. "The Kids" includes their omnivorousness and force before being completed.
