PUNK is the sophomore album by Japanese punk-rock band CHAI. Available here on LP, CD, and cassette tape.
CHAI is an adventure where all things are Pink, a sound that fuses the likings of Basement Jaxx, CSS, and Tom Tom Club, lyrics catered to self-empowerment and re-defining the definition of “kawaii” or cute, and indescribably fun visuals that’ll surely absorb you whole!
The 4-piece band from Nagoya, Japan consists of identical twins MANA (voc/keys), KANA (gt/cho), YUUKI (ba/cho), and YUNA (dr/cho) bound together in 2015. CHAI’s concept of “NEOkawaii” or new cute derived from personal experiences where they simply did not fit into society’s standard of “cute.” This concept has drawn in audiences world-wide and can be best described in their hit single, “N.E.O.”, from their first album PINK. This adventure would lead them to US indie label Burger Records who released PINK in February 2018 followed by their “We Are CHAI” Tour, their first US tour with performances throughout California as well as several stages at SXSW.
