The Slants are known as the first all-Asian American dance rock band in the world. The band was founded by Simon Young (also known as Simon Tam) in 2006 in Portland, Oregon.
Parlaying a dynamic affinity for 80s synth-pop/new wave, The Slants combine danceable rhythms with catchy pop tunes that immediately grab the listener’s attention. Lyrically, the band highlight their Asian roots and provide a rare insight that other bands might not be equipped for.
“Sakura Sakura”, “Haruki Murakami”, “I Want Everything”, “Kokoro (I Fall to Pieces).
The Cars, New Order, Yellow Magic Orchestra, The Killers.
Whereas The Slants deliver an authentic take on 80s dance rock style, their image is a unique perspective previously unseen.
