Often regarded as the resurgence of Haruomi Hosono’s legendary Japanese folk-rock group Happy End, never young beach has been grabbing much attention in the Japanese music scene with its unique pop melody and down-to-earth lyrics, and combining its native Japanese sounds mixed with influences from American indie music.
Formed in the spring of 2014 in Tokyo, Never Young Beach's debut album 'Yashinoki House' was released in May 2015, followed by their 2nd album 'fam fam' in June 2016. Both albums were nominated for the CD Shop Awards.
The group performed in various large festivals including Fuji Rock Festival, Rising Sun Rock Festival, Rock in Japan, and Greenroom Festival. Their second album "A Good Time' was released in July 2017 by Victor Entertainment. The record release tour sold out and the group invited Devendra Banhart from Los Angeles, an artist whom they cite as one of their biggest influences, as a special guest for their added show in Tokyo at Studio Coast. The band had also previously supported the Japanese tours for The Growlers, Mild High Club, and Tommy Guerrero.
