[Roundup] Non-Idol Picks of Q1 2017

SHADOWS – Chain Reaction

Little known fact (oh man, the puns), but I was a pretty big fan of the band FACT and I wasn’t super stoked on the idea of them breaking up last year. Well Hiro, Kazuki and Takahiro have gone off and formed their own band called SHADOWS and pretty much took all of the elements of FACT that I loved and repackaged it under a different name. I’m certainly not going to complain about this development, that’s for sure.

“Chain Reaction” is the group’s first single, although they’ve already put out a couple of EPs even at such an early stage in the band’s life. I believe they also have a mini-album coming out in a couple of weeks so it’s like all my Christmases are coming at once. I’m not really sure what else to say here, it’s FACT under a different name so if you liked FACT already then you can just pick up where things left off. If you don’t know who FACT were then it’s time to get yourself educated son.
