Music Monday: KICK BACK and relax with Kenshi Yonezu and Aquila

Music Monday features a different category of songs on a weekly basis. Each Monday, Harker Aquila will release seven songs, one song for each day of the week.

Kenshi Yonezu is something of a J-pop sensation: both of the top two most viewed Japanese music videos, clocking in at 850 million and 598 million views as of today, are his. Yonezu released his debut album in 2012, and since then, he has experimented with different styles of music — no two of his songs sound the same. In celebration of his 33rd birthday, which was yesterday, Harker Aquila is here to take you on a tour of his musical journey, chronologically.
