A wonderful example of the popularity of this fairly young, Japanese rock band. CLOCK STRIKES, a very powerful song. Obviously a fan favorite (as demonstrated in this video from the Rock in Japan Festival 2013.)

These guys have an amazing sound as well as a great story as how the band was formed.

I am lucky enough to have a friend that loves this group even more than I do. She introduced me to them and now I am fast becoming another fan as well.
All the guys are very talented, but Taka is a powerhouse of energy, musical ability (in his genes no doubt.)

Clock strikes, from the Jinsei × Boku Album, this music and lyrics by Taka is a great example of his writing skills and his wonderful use of words.
