Biography

Supreme melody and visual expression that pierce your skull - experience the vivid moment of frame-collapsing, genre-breaking sound of “quaff”…

With it’s one and only real of art and the nouvel le-alternative sound of emphasized Japonism, “quaff” makes a dramatic entrance!!

The main characteristic of “quaff” lies in the twin-vocal style of “uta” (melody) and “tuzuri” (rap) - a rock band with heavy emphasis on the very essence of being Japanese. The underlying epiphanic message is obvious in the lyrical content as well as in the unique melody. The band’s material is written around the beauty of Japanese language. What “quaff” is trying to convey, is human emotion, vision, heart of music as art form, and strong will. Their music is not within any given boundary, a musical genre, and it remains to be true art, which is virtually non-existent in the domestic (Japanese) music scene. The very essence of this oriental feel and its emotional expression can be appreciated throughout the world, beyond the obvious appeal for the Japanese ears.

    Oh! It's so sad. The member change happened right after I first saw them, and now this. Oh well... I'll still keep listening to Unknown from Oversea a million times in the car. <3

    Since the other group picture was pixilated and blurry and the band itself uploaded a bigger and better one, I've deleted the one I uploaded a week ago and posted a new one, so, please, vote for it.

    HAL, TAKUMA, SHINGO, SEIYA & UKISEMI are leaving QUAFF. Makito says in his Myspace blog post that there will be new band members and new music in the future from QUAFF, but HAL, TAKUMA, SHINGO, SEIYA & UKISEMI have all chosen a different life. (QUAFF's official myspace, blog post by Makito)

    クラベ is absolutely awesome song. And 'in me' too. A little miss about dark Quaff sound.

    I bet they switched to VK since they figured it would sell more.
