One Eye Closed – Cain
Officially starting from the end of 2019, One Eye Closed is a 4 piece mixture band consisting of REI (vo), none (gtr), Yasu (ba), Kay (dr). Influenced by a wide-range of genres, One Eye Closed combines Western and Japanese elements and mixes genres, such as rock, RnB, hip hop, and jazz, to create a fresh, new style of music. Driven by storytelling, honest lyrics, dynamic playing, and strong live performances, One Eye Closed is one of the driving forces in the underground J-rock scene from Tokyo.
One Eye Closed released their first EP entitled “Cain”, consisting of 5 songs. Focusing themes on mental illness, anxiety, loss, and hopelessness, EP “Cain” tells the story about its main character struggling with inner demons who receives the name Cain. The main character is reminded about all the struggles they ran away from, which is expressed in each song within this EP. The story continues with the release of their single “Monster” along with 2 other songs under a 3-track compilation called “Abel”, where the main character undergoes a battle with this inner demon named Cain, and ultimately choosing between either acceptance or fighting.
One Eye Closed has also provided their song “Low” for PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and PC video game “No Straight Roads” by Malaysian video game company Metronomik.
