Do As Infinity
Before Do As Infinity ever rose to the top of the Oricon chart, the trio started out far more modestly -- as street performers. According to legend, the band would perform regularly in front of a train station statue in Shibuya.
Do As Infinity combines jazz-pop, alternative rock and hip-hop in a highly stylisized but totally memorable sound. The trio is no slouch when it comes to nailing hooks. At the same time, Do As Infinity has a keen sense for mixing unlikely elements.
