The Lamb are a city pop five piece, originally from Tokyo, Japan. The group formed in 2019, with Noboru Watanabe on vocals/guitar, Junpei Ogino on bass, Yushi Nakajima on drums, Kyuto Uno on keyboards and Shinjiro Yamada on sax. The Lamb released their debut EP on the year they formed, titled ‘Metrofuturhythm‘. Since then, they have gone strength to strength, adding three more EP’s to their roster.

This year, The Lamb have unveiled two brand new tracks ‘Pilgrims’ and ‘Poolside’. The latter has compiled over 3,000 listens alone on Spotify. Additionally, they have over 379,000 hits on their 2020 track ‘Plastic Girl’, which is quite the achievement for a smaller band.

It definitely seems as though The Lamb are getting stronger than ever and truly finding their place in the music industry. With that, we sat down with The Lamb to discuss how they would love to tour with Maroon 5 in the near future, even learn some yoga poses with Adam Levine!
