The Lamb are Japanese city pop band. The band consists of Noboru Watanabe (vocals, guitar), Junpei Ogino (bass), Yushi Nakajima (drums), Kyuto Uno (keyboards), and Shinjiro Yamada (saxophone).

Formed in Tokyo in 2019, they have self-released 4  EPs. The song "Plastic Girl" was ranked # 24 at the highest on Spotify's Japanese viral top 50, and has been featured on many official Spotify playlists, including "Best City Pop Songs Of 2020".

In 2021, "Tokyo" has been featured on international music blogs and reaction videos, and is attracting attention from city pop fans in Japan and abroad.  March of the same year, they signed a contract with Luuv Label, a music label in Shanghai, China.  In September, we signed with UK music label, The Animal Farm. In November, we'll release 3 singles which they produced together.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Do you know the Chinese zodiac? When we started the band, the zodiac sign for that year was "sheep". William Blake didn't name it.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Tokyo, Japan. The music we play, "City Pop", attracts more attention from people overseas than from Japanese people. What about the UK, do you know Tatsuro Yamashita?

4. How would you describe your style?

The easiest way to describe it is "City Pop". I'm heavily influenced by UK music from all eras.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We've released four EPs so far. We play a lot more different sounds than most bands do. Each EP sounds different and can be confusing, but we hope you like it.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We'll be releasing three singles on the UK music label The Animal Farm Music, the first being "Atlantis" on November 12.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We live in Japan, so we don't know when we'll be able to come to the UK. Our gigs in Japan are now mainly streaming with no audience. We'd love to go to UK someday, for sure. UK is the place we dream about.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

As per Mr.Leppanen's command.

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube...etc. We also have a cute Merch that you can buy on our website.
