Rising Japanese-American boys band Intersection have unleashed their new single “You’re The Reason” today! The music video is a must-see! They are also announcing their first album. Intersection are a bilingual boy band who have both Japanese and American cultural background. They made their debut in October last year with their first single “Heart Of Gold”.

The band has released four singles so far, and the music videos of those have earned more than three million views in total on YouTube. The band has been receiving high reputations on their music and fashion. They have made appearances at large-scale events such as 27th Tokyo Girls Collection and Sapporo Collection 2019. They also have been invited to major fashion shows such as Dior and Louis Vuitton. Each member also works as solo.

One of the members, William, started a production on this single with Sack Skelton & Casey Smith in Los Angeles in 2016. The single is the answer to their previous single “Starting Over” that was produced during that time. William newly rewrote Japanese lyrics for the new single and recorded vocal parts of the members this year. The music video of the new single was shot in Los Angeles, the origin of their music production.

Intersection debuted last October with “Heart Of Gold.”, their second single was “Falling”, followed by “Body Language”. The band has kept releasing for three consecutive months. In December, one of the members, Kazuma, released his solo single “To You” (feat. Carlo Redl) under name Kay. Following Kazuma, Mika released his solo single “Tell Me.” Each member actively work as solo as well. The band has also been selected for Artists to Watch by YouTube in January this year.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
