Meet Yukichika and Fumisato, the brother duo of Tokyo’s own GROWING'S. Formed in 2014, this two-piece dynamic wishes to keep you smiling with their hearty sound and catchy, interwoven beats. We at JpopRocks were thrilled to ask them some of the hard-hitting questions that we wanted to know.


JPR:  Is there any meaning behind naming yourselves GROWING'S?

GROWING'S:  We've named ourselves GROWING'S for the fact that we are growing up in every way.



JPR:  If you can describe yourself by food, which food are you and why?

Yukichika:  I would be English Tea with some milk and tons of sugar.  That's because my head is filled with sugary stuff.

Fumisato:  Anko (A Japanese sweet red bean paste), because people have always called me Tsubu (a piece of red bean grain).



JPR:  What's unique about GROWING'S and how will you get your band to stand out?

GROWING'S:  GROWING'S is a brother duo with a two-piece dynamic.




JPR:  What made you choose the instruments you play?

Yukichika:  I have always been drawn to the drums.

Fumisato:  I took up the guitar so that I can perform with Yukichika.  As for vocals, Yukichika forced me to sing at our second performance which started my vocal career.



JPR:  What's the most challenging part about being musicians?

GROWING'S:  We don't have any difficulties about being musicians.  Even when we are physically tired, the fatigue would go away once we see the audience having fun.



JPR:  If you could only choose one song to play every time you walked into a room, what would it be?

GROWING'S:  "Dream Come True"



JPR:  If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not, living or dead, real or fictional, with whom would it be?

GROWING'S:  Hiro Tsunoda, who is Yukichika's drum master.



JPR:  Describe what the other person's best quality is.

Yukichika:  Fumisato is pretty and he has a gift that I don't have.  He is swell.

Fumisato:  I admire how Yukichika is always upbeat and full of enthusiasm.



JPR:  Do you have any message for your JpopRocks fans?

GROWING'S:  We hope our music will make you smile!!!!
