INTERSECTION: The New and Freshest Boy Band On Our Radar.
While most people were believing in the apogee of famous boy band after One Direction, the music scene has been witness of the rise of interesting and charismatic bands like Why Don’t We, New Hope Club, The Vamps, PRETTYMUCH etc.
Well, there’s now a new boy band to add to that large roaster. It’s of course the Japanese-American band INTERSECTION. Based in Tokyo, William, Kazuma, Caelan, Mika, the four members of the band are new big thing in the city. They’re young, charismatic, good-looking and mostly talented. And we can testify, after analyzing bands like One Direction, that those four criteria are definitely what a boy band needs to be famous.
Indeed, it’s through their track “falling” that we discovered INTERSECTION. The track is tasty, full of emotion and catchiness. Also each performer has his own exotic sound signature. That must be because the members of the group were all raised in different cultures. And it’s interesting to see so much flavors in just one track.
The intention behind the composing portrays romance between teens. The promotional video shot in Kamakura, Japan shows moments of youth such as skateboarding, arts, sports, and dating, as you can view below.
Moreover, the band recently unveiled another single entitled Body language that you can stream below.
