唱着唱不完的青春歌的Siamese Cats其实也成军14年了。这支甜美的东京Indie Pop乐队由主唱夏目知幸，夏目幼儿园玩伴吉他手菅原慎一，英语急训班同学结识的鼓手藤村頼正，及其会弹贝斯的伙伴大塚智之组成。乐队四子自高中时代便组团写歌，默契十足。2009年，他们发行了处子作《Hashike》，无国界态度和自由派现场风格，让他们逐渐地变得为人所知。在此之后，他们十分热爱并疯狂发表Demo作品，而且张张可以迅速售罄，很快在日本独立音乐圈打出名堂，有着不输Yogee New Wave、Mitsume、Never Young Beach的高人气。他们的才华也深受圈内晚辈D.A.N等年轻乐团仰慕，主流知名歌手木村Kaela、ASINAN KUNG-FU GENERATION也向Siamese Cats伸出了橄榄枝。主唱夏目知幸更是日本独立乐界人人喜爱的明星乐手，个人活动亦十分活跃。
2014年Siamese Cats发行的第三张迷你专辑《Take Care》在业界引起话题，专辑里的人气曲《Girl At Bus Stop》同Mitsume的《烟突》并称新一代独立流行金曲。而在今年6月，Siamese Cats发行了其第四张专辑《Friends Again》，标志着他们离开大唱片公司，回归独立初心自立门户后的蜕变。没了以往少年心气的暹罗猫，将旋律谱写成风景，一花一草都细腻动人，颇有Sarah Records田园遗风。新专辑一经发行，深受业界好评。九月开启的新专日本巡演门票目前已全部售罄。
by THe 尺口MP《MILAJIANG》
乐队名字已彰显其定位，Romp，既是“不费力地完成”与“嬉笑玩闹”的意思；擅长绘画制图的阿星，发现“RO”与中文“尺口”字体形似，便命名乐队为“尺口MP”，又如“尺口”在文言文里“婴儿”的含义所示。三位成员就像大男孩，在节奏闲适的福州，歌唱着自己喜欢的事物。尺口MP又甜又丧的旋律，和欢脱的riff，带着日本City Pop的影响痕迹。然而，乐队并不刻意讲究技术性，吉他一浪一浪的刷声，硬朗的鼓点，能听出海浪冲击礁石一般的Lo-Fi质感，歌声就像海岸线上迎风奔跑时的快意宣泄，确实没费力气精雕细琢，有及时行乐的率性，它们传达的信息是，再怎么努力也没用，不如在乎眼前的生活，享受爱与美景。在福州这样沿海二线城市的享乐气派，与City Pop甜美逃逸、沙滩休闲精神的相呼应下，尺口MP被打上“福州Lo-Fi City Pop”的标签，也称为“懒鬼风”。
说到中日联谊，不得不提Siamese Cats与落日飞车。两队因台湾共演结缘，互相打 call已成习惯。在落日飞车乐队巡演东京站上，两队虽未共演，但在飞车翻唱 Siamese Cats的《Travel Agency》时，主唱夏目知幸从天而降，又实现一次同台联谊。作为Siamese Cats新专辑《Friends Again》亚巡的中国站，同巡乐队选择了最近独立圈引起话题的福州乐队尺口。3月参加过日本乐队Tempalay巡演的尺口本身酷爱日本音乐，两队走在一起也并不意外。
Siamese Cats将清新花草和活泼乐风融合进City Pop里，尺口MP以lofi和福州民风的方式，将City Pop本土化为闽南海岸特色。创作上，Siamese Cats的精心雕琢和尺口 MP的不刻意作为是两队最大的差异。而两队的歌里都勾勒着城市风景，歌唱爱、自由与美景。Siamese Cats常将都市中微妙的一面，奔波的工薪族、紫色花朵、流浪猫等等，谱写进音乐，成为爱情故事里的风景，尺口MP则书写出市井生活里的奔波无奈，表达出及时行乐的率性。热爱喝酒，热爱音乐，似乎是两队最大的共性。
Over the past three years, The fin., Cero, Mitsume, Adevantage Lucy and other bands have successively come to China to bring City Pop, J-Pop, Shibuya-kei of diversified and fantastic Japanese music experience for the Chinese fans.

Siamese Cats will be fresh flowers and lively music into the City Pop, and the Romp, to lofi and Fuzhou folk way, will City Pop localized to the southern coast of Fujian characteristics. In the creation, Siamese Cats's elaborate carvings and the Romp’s non-deliberately as the biggest difference between the two bands.
