The band consists member Nobuki Akiyama(vocal&guitar), Kohei Kamoto(drums), Yotaro Kachi(bass), and Yosuke Shimonaka(guitar),
formed in 2012 when they were students in Meiji GakuinUniversity.
In 2015, they released『EP #1』through audio cassette and the Internet by themselves, which managed to draw music lovers’ attention
around the world.
In May 2016, after combining all the factors influenced by the general indie-rock, including sound, style, and scale, they completed and
released the first EP 『Don’t Know Where It Is』with 6 songs in it.
In the fifth year since their foundation, they released the first album『Say Goodbye to Memory Den』on April 19, 2017.
All the songs in this album are produced by the solo artist/guitarist of The Strokes, Albert Hammond Jr., and the producer of The Strokes, Gus Oberg. In 2018, DYGL released a single "Bad kicks" recorded in UK and it is produced by Rory Attwell.
This particularly aggressive song “Bad Kicks” is filled with the energy of leading the band to the next level.
