These guys are new to the scene, why are you writing an article about them??? There are so many amazing artist from the bay who have been around so much longer than them! Yea they've been plying music for awhile but COME ON! There are so many chiptune artist. Why would you just focus on these guys, you can barely hear it in their music.

"These guys" got written about even though they're "new to the scene" because they're fun, interesting and cute. I mean, look at 'em! They wear matching outfits! They're polite and funny! They're good-looking! They've taken several musical genres and blended them into a style all their own! They're....THE BEATLES!!

they may be new, but there's probably a good reason that they've blown up so fast. they're good! maybe not the best, but i've been following them for a while and was at their first show where they opened for anamanaguchi. that's a huge deal for a first show, and they're really cute and fun live. being a talented musician is one thing (sure, maybe there are other talented chip musicians but where are they and where are their shows?), but knowing how to market yourself is another, and i think they're just pulling out all the right cards. kudos to them. you just sound like a jealous dick.

They're one of the few 8-bit musicians out there that use vocals at all and they're fully awesome in every. way. THAT'S WHY. Keep up the awesome music, TGS.

lighten up ... anything that swings the spotlight towards the chiptune/micromusic scene benefits all of us. to me one of the best things about the scene is that we're held together by a passionate nerding out over the tools of the trade ... but everyone sounds so different! name another genre which blends together so many styles under one banner?
