The group features vocalist Harukaze, who spent eight years living abroad before returning to Japan’s music scene, along with overall producer Hiroyuki SAWANO and art collective Classic 6.
NAQT VANE are dedicated to reaching everyone who lives in the era of the wind – a flexible world rich in freedom and diversity, with a lifestyle unbound by material things or status. The members hope to breathe a wind of change, building their own space together where new stories can shine.
