Emerging Japanese rock band One Eye Closed combine EDM with djent in new summer single 'Never Forget'. The track is available to download and stream today, along with its beautifully shot music video, filmed on location at Enoshima, Japan and featuring Hetsumiya Shrine. This shrine is thought to bring good luck to couples who write their wishes on pink ema (votive tablet) hoping for true love. A bitter-sweet location for a song looking back on a relationship from both sides.
'Never Forget' features guest vocals from voice actress and producer Nikki Simmons. One Eye Closed and Nikki Simmons worked together on the multi-award nominated video game No Straight Roads, where One Eye Closed provided the ending theme song "Low", and Simmons was the English voice actress behind the game's digital idol SAYU.

In the blink of an eye, Tokyo rockers One Eye Closed have gone global. Their blinding debut EP Cain – self-released at the end of 2019 – not only saw the band gain attention from Japan’s underground rock scene, but also from music fans around the world when one if its tracks became the ending theme to a video game. EP track 'Low' features in 'Best of E3 2019' finalist No Straight Roads on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC (which also features JPU Records' own guitar shredder; Midori of LOVEBITES on its soundtrack).
