SAMOEDO, the talented Japanese indie band, is set to release their new track “I’m Crazy About You” on February 15th, 2023.
This highly-anticipated release follows the impressive debut album that has left a lasting impact on the Tokyo indie scene.
SAMOEDO will also be touring in Tokyo, Nagoya and Osaka on a one-man tour.
Founded in 2022, SAMOEDO is a collaboration between four influential figures in the Japanese indie scene.
The mastermind behind the project, Shin=Sugawara Shinichi (formerly of the band Shamcats), is a film composer, producer, and writer.
He teamed up with his long time friend and fellow bassist nakayaan(Mitsume), drummer Kento Suzuki(never young beach), and keyboardist Naruki Numazawa(ODOLA) to form SAMOEDO.
I’m Crazy About You
The new track “I’m Crazy About You” was recorded with all four members together for the first time, a departure from Shin’s previous method of creating a demo before the other members joined in.
This time, nakayaan brought the music to the table and Shin added the lyrics. The result is a layered and radiant sound that takes you on a journey from the first synth-filled intro.
The recording and mixing were done at Bigfish Sounds, Shin’s former home, and participated by engineer Hyuga Kashiwai.
SAMOEDO’s new track “I’m Crazy About You” is a nostalgic nod to the UK sounds of the 90s, with the band’s own unique arrangement.
The new direction in Shin’s lyrics, incorporating more meaningful words, adds depth to this already multi-layered production.
Don’t miss out on the chance to experience SAMOEDO’s musical evolution when “I’m Crazy About You” drops on February 15th, 2023.

SAMOEDO band profile
“SAMOEDO, a band formed in 2022, is a project started by Shin Sugawara (ex Siamese Cats), a film music producer. Started by inviting bassist nakayaan (Mitsume), drummer Kento Suzuki (never young beach), and keyboard player Naruki Numazawa. The goal of the project is to “perform music that makes people who wander into a new street in an unfamiliar place dance” and “to create something that will be broadcast at McDonald’s in a city where people do not understand the language and make anyone who hears it a little bit happy”. They will also develop open pop music from Asia to the world.”
