LIVE REPORTNAEBA SHOKUDO7/31 SUN
Singing about the simple joys that remind you of your crush
Cody Lee is a five-person band featuring male/female twin vocalists. From the moment they stepped on the Naeba Shokudo stage (which is at the same location as the Rookie stage), they were full of energy and got right down to business to make the crowd “bop” to their tunes.
Their set was shortly after the rain had cleared, so more people finally came out to enjoy them right in the open-air pit.
At first, Cody Lee’s songs gave off retro pop vibes as well as funk groove. Lyrics transpired relatable Tokyo scenes – simple joys like walking along the streets of Shinjuku or waiting for friends at a train station – right onto the stage in Naeba.
“There’s a special feeling in being able to experience Fuji rock in person,” said the male lead, Hibiki Takahashi, “we want to end the set with a song that gives you the same feeling as the first time you meet someone you really begin to like.”
The band kept up the same happy energy as when they first started, although their music was much more heavy rock by the end. To witness that transition and to still somehow keep a consistent sound that reflects the band is impressive.
