Sour Is A Three-piece Band That Hails From Japan.

I’d like to introduce you to one of the most imaginative music videos I have come across recently. It is named “Hibi No Neiro” [Tone Of Everyday], and it is the first single to be issued by Japanese artist Sour from its “Water Flavor” EP.

Just watch it and enjoy. I wouldn’t be surprised if more awards are on its way.
