自2000年出道以來,日本Indie樂隊downy就注定難以被定形。

由日印混血兒青木Robin擔任主音歌手兼結他手,加上結他手青木裕、低音結他手仲俣和宏、鼓手秋山隆彦,以及VJ柘榴所組成的downy,初出道時正值Post-Rock旺盛期,而他們於2001年發表的首張專集《無題》,也因布滿Post-Rock基因,而被認為是這音樂體系的一份子。

經歷過拆夥(2004年)和重組(2013年),downy一而再、再而三,總共發表了六張同樣稱為《無題》的專集,要Google資料或買碟時,都要加倍小心,偶一大意隨時買錯或買多。不過,音樂風格上,downy並不如碟名般專一,由Post-Rock玩到Math Rock、Post-Hardcore、Experimental Rock、Indie Rock等,林林種種重型又虛幻的聲音混為一體,他們可以什麼都是,他們也可以什麼都不是,當中不變是那沉重、灰暗和無奈的氛圍。

作為downy的fromtman,青木Robin除了作品創作外,他還聯同MONO的Taka Goto與envy的河合信賢,於去年開始舉辦音樂節《AFTER HOURS》,是希望將日本展現出日本音樂與藝術的不同面向。主題概念都不過是虛幻飄渺,演出陣容才是重要根基,《AFTER HOURS》今年4月第二屆演出,參與名單份量勁得嚇人,三位舉辦者所屬樂隊當然不可少,當看見toe、Boris、tricot、World’s End Girlfriend、Mouse On The Keys等一隊隊不同風格樂隊,可見這音樂節的強大。

downy的唱片一直在本地Indie圈廣泛流傳,十多年來都是聽日本Indie不可不知的名字,十多年後終於有機會一睹downy現場演出的風采,過往在第三和第四張《無題》兩碟中,聽過和看過他們演出片段,那份澎湃,那份緊湊,那份激情,不用再透過音響器材的傳播,而是毫無阻隔地呈現眼前,親歷其境的零距離感覺,永遠是最好的。

​=====================================​

downy (Japan)
Formed in April 2000, downy is a 5 piece rock band who feature a ‘visual specialist’ amongst their ranks. Their live performance is a true fusion of the audio and visual, appealing to both the audience’s visual and aural senses – something that the band has helped to pioneer. Each individual member is also an active musician in their own right, receiving ringing endorsements from musicians both within Japan and beyond. The band went on hiatus in 2004, only to return in 2013 and then play Fujirock Festival the following year, summer 2014. Their latest album, released in September 2016, is their 6th full length album, entitled “6th Album -‘Untitled’”.
