SPYAIR to provide the theme song for Matsuda Shota’s new drama

On March 27, it was revealed that 4-member rock band SPYAIR’s newest song “Niji” will be used as the theme song for the TBS drama “Sennyu Tantei Tokage”, which will begin airing every Thursday at 9PM starting on April 18.

Actor Matsuda Shota stars as a detective in the drama. The drama offers a different flavor of mystery and suspense as it follows a former elite police detective who possesses an overwhelming memory and his assistant as they solve difficult and unresolved cases. The drama is also reflective of human nature as the characters in the drama mature as they struggle to balance “oneself” with “one’s past.”

For a little backstory on the band, all of the SPYAIR members are from Aichi Prefecture and they were formed in 2005. In 2009, DJ ENZEL☆ who was a support member, joined the group. Last year, they were handpicked to provide the theme song for the Japanese release of the film “The Amazing Spiderman,” and in December, they performed for the first time ever at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo. After their performance at the Nippon Budokan, ENZEL☆ left the group. This is the first song they have made as a four-man group and it was written specifically for the drama. The song is a brilliant rock ballad that encourages one to persevere and walk forth even when one is troubled.

The group plans on revealing the song on March 31 at Zepp Namba in Osaka.
