J-Rock Band One Eye Closed Take a Glimpse at a Dystopian Future in All of Us

Brand new J-rock band One Eye Closed take a sarcastic look at Japan's work ethics in new single All Of Us. It's available to download / stream now and sees the Tokyo quartet flip expectations once again, changing things up from the fresh nu-metal energy of N.C.H., the winter ballad vibes of With How I Feel or the melodic-rock groove of Monster.

The band's bilingual vocalist REI comments, "We wanted to push ourselves as musicians with this track. All Of Us keeps our rock roots, but blends that core with funk, jazz and pop more so than any of our releases so far. Despite this being One Eye Closed's closest thing to a pop song, the lyrics are anything but."

All Of Us music video sees the band's members REI, none, Yasu and Kay in a dystopian future where everyone dresses the same, acts the same and are blind to the world around them. "It's an exaggeration of modern life," explains REI. "Here in Japan there's a real pressure to fit in with society. We thought there were a lot of avenues to explore around this concept, whether you're a musician with the expectations to make pop songs and not be true to who you are, or if you're a salary-man living with a boring, repetitive and enforced routine. We shouldn't be afraid to push back. That's the message of this song and its video."

One Eye Closed blasted their way into the global music scene when their track 'Low' was closed as the official ending theme to award winning video game No Straight Roads on PS4, Xbox, PC and Nintendo Switch. Since then they've signed with one of the biggest Japanese music labels outside of Japan, JPU Records, and continued to innervate with each release pushing new ground.
