Biography

Motobu, Okinawa (2004 – 2009)

Hearts Grow (ハーツ・グロウ), was a Japanese pop/rock band. The band formed in 2004 and debuted as an indie band in 2005. After the release of two indie mini-albums the band signed to the major label Epic Records Japan in 2006. However the band officially disbanded a year after the release of their single “Sora” (theme song to Tetsuwan Birdy DECODE).

Information:
Before Hearts Grow formed, the band was divided into two bands. The women of the band were in a band called G-SEVEN, and the men were known as BAMBOO. In 2004, both of these bands disbanded and later joined together and formed Hearts Grow.

The group met in northern Okinawa at Ajisai Ongaku Mura (あじさい音楽村), a practice studio near an Okinawan high school. They began performing street lives in Okinawa. In 2005 they signed with the Ajisai indie label and released their first mini-album, HEARTS GROW. After the release of their second indie mini-album, Grow!!, the band signed with the major label Sony Music Entertainment under their Epic Records sub-label.

In 2006, the band made their major label debut with the single “Road”. Not long after its release the band followed up with their second single: “Yura Yura” which was used as the ninth opening theme to the anime NARUTO. They are known for performing the ninth opening of NARUTO, Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z’s fourth ending, the fourth opening for Gintama.

In 2008, the band’s drummer Yuuya had to leave the band because he broke his elbow. Takuya, of the band Hysteric Blue, joined the band to replace him, but was not officially in the band. After the release of “Sora” later that year the band went on hiatus for reasons that were undisclosed.
