About Tempalay

Tempalay is a Japanese band that specializes in making quirky, genre-blending indie pop.

∙ Inspired by the music of Jimi Hendrix, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Japanese hip-hop group RIP SLYME, Tempalay founder and frontman Ryōto Ohara began playing guitar while still a child.
∙ . The band’s big break came in 2015, when they were selected to play the Fuji Rock Festival’s Rookie A Go-Go stage, which showcased up-and-coming acts.
∙ Their 2017 release from JAPAN 2 was the first Tempalay album to reach the Top 100 of the Oricon Albums chart.
With Love from the 21 Century shot to No. 30 on the Oricon Albums chart in 2019, thanks in part to a social media shoutout from K-pop supergroup BTS.
