Alexandros, formely known as [Champagne], is one of the
most exciting and innovative rock bands to come out of Japan in recent years. Formed in 2007, the band quickly made a
name for themselves with their unique blend of rock,
electronic, and punk influences, and their powerful live performances.
The band's early music was heavily influenced by punk and alternative rock, with their debut album "Where's My Potato?" released in 2010, which showcased their raw and energetic sound. The album was well received by critics and helped the band to establish a dedicated fanbase.
As a music journalist constantly on the hunt for the next big thing, I stumbled upon a new (to me) band that left me floored.
Despite their undeniable talent and massive success, they had flown under my radar until now. But now, it's my pleasure to shine a spotlight on this incredible group and delve into their impressive accomplishments. Trust me when I say, they're a force to be reckoned with and a name you'll want to remember."
