Ever seen The Virgin Suicides? There’s a great scene where the boys and girls are playing records for each other. That’s what Warmer Climes is all about. It’s a really interesting music blog put together by Romanian freelance music journalist Vlad Stoian. Vlad is a hugely dedicated journalist who expresses his infinite passion for music by asking musicians across the globe to introduce ten of their favourite tunes. We were even luckier – we got to introduce twenty, each complete with a little tale explaining its personal importance to us. Plenty of notable musicians have contributed to Warmer Climes, including Franz Ferdinand, Supergrass and Gotye, and we’d like to say a big thank you to Vlad for featuring The Watanabes. You can check out our top 10 here.
We’re super excited to be celebrating the release of Stolen‘s debut single. Shibuya’s 7th Floor will be opening its doors on May 30th and it will only cost you a smooth 1000 yen to join the party. Bargain! Erin Wick and Mountain Fingers will also be there, and we’ll be playing with our complete line up. Hope you can join us.
This promises to be a goood night! Our old friends The Goood Friends have got a banging new EP out, and they’ve invited us to celebrate with them. Local legend KINLAY has just released a brilliant new record and he’ll be bringing out his hot new tunes. There’ll also be some Latin vibes from The Hi-Hopes, as well as Hard To Explain DJ Minae Tani. The party starts at 7pm on the dot with a full band set from us, so whatever you do, don’t be fashionably late! It just ain’t cool anymore…

We’re back at our favourite British pub on Thursday night to celebrate St. George! As two guitar strumming, dragon fighting English men, we’ve been invited to perform three thirty minute acoustic sets at The Aldgate in Shibuya. 8pm start. It’s a lovely little pub with great food, quality beer, and a friendly, smoke-free atmosphere, and provides an authentic taste of Britain in Japan. 遊びに来て、一緒に飲みながらイギリスの祭りを祝おう！
