White Ash caused a stir a couple of days ago by releasing a band photo that wasn’t what you’d expect of White Ash. The photo was of all black members.
But this isn’t a black and white issue. It’s not really a race issue (or it shouldn’t be anyway.) It’s just an Asian band with a white name, with a picture of black people. If anything, it’s probably White Ash just trying to take away from the fact the group is really made up of dorks who like to rock. If you’ve seen the lead singer, he’s not really a looker. In fact, the video for “Jails” has the lead singer in super dork form with knee high socks and buttoned up to the neck yellow shirt dancing like a.. dork.
What you should focus on is like the fact the bass in “Jails” is super sexy. The music is tight and highly danceable. Now excuse me while I dance like a white boy.
White Ash is releasing Quit or Quiet on 7.4.2012. Pre-up at CDJapan.
