Sally Kubota? The guy from les 5-4-3-2-1?

BYW, do you reccomend this álbum? The 4 singles sound pretty good...

Yes & yes! :)
I've had it on repeat a lot since it came out! Monari is a great singer, and I think all of the tracks are really good!

By the way, Sally has a new band called Soleil with a first single coming next month. I'll post about it soon!
