DYGL (pronounced "day-glo") is an alternative indie-rock band consisting of members Nobuki Akiyama (vo/ gt), Kohei Kamoto (dr), Yotaro Kachi (ba) and Yosuke Shimonaka (gt). The band is always burning with curiosity in the fields of music, politics and culture, which are demonstrated in their songs.

In April 2017, they released the 1st album "Say Goodbye to Memory Den" and their song 'Let It Out' M/V broke 1 million views. All the songs in this album are produced by the solo artist/guitarist of Albert Hammond Jr. (a.k.a the Strokes), and the producer Gus Oberg. In 2019, their 2nd Album "Songs of Innocence & Experience" led the band to do the remarkable world tour in US, EU, UK and Asia. And they performed with different artists such as The Strypes, Beach Fossils, Manic Sheep, Bad Suns and so on.

In 2021, they released the 3rd album "A DAZE IN A HAZE". And in 2022, DYGL released the single 'Waves' and 4th album "Thirst", which hit thousands streamings all over the world.

With the result of getting more international audience, the band was selected to support Franz Ferdinand and PAVEMENT in Japan.
