Biography

Forming back in high school, ハンブレッダーズ  has seen this group of friends rise through the music scene. The band is made up of 木島 (Kijima) [Drums], ムツムロ アキラ (Mutsumuro Akira) [Vocals and Guitar], and でらし (Derashi) [Bass and Chorus]. At the time of writing they have released 2 albums and 1 mini-album which they have independently released. Hopefully as the band grows in Japan, they will start to set their sights abroad and play our shores, sometime soon.

Sound

ハンブレッダーズ deliver an interesting blend of pop rock, incorporating many elements of heavier styles but maintaining the smooth edge to give it a general appeal. It is particularly refined from their earlier releases that have a lot more of a heavy pop punk sound that has developed in newer releases. Don’t get me wrong though, I don’t mean they threw the sound out! The core elements are still there, such as the heavy drums and intense riffing, although instead of having that rough garage sound it has that top level finish that is more radio friendly. Not only is it from an increased production budget, it does feel like a step up in their musical ability as well has made them tighten up the sound to come more together, and more purposeful than just fast and loud.

Where the instrumental has become more refined, the vocals have stayed consistent over their discography. Nailing a good pop rock sound, there is a mostly harmonic focus but a strength and rough energy in parts, capitulating the balance the band strike between pop and rock. It really brings out the refinement in the instrumental and creates a nice package as an overall sound. Indeed in their short recording career, this band already have made incredible progress to get to this high-level sound on an independent level. It is really reflected in the youtube views that have shot up in the recent releases, showing they have created a more general appeal. Really, it feels it is only a matter of time before this band makes their major debut!
