The “One More Night” Tep No remix continues End Of The World’s expansion into the U.S. music market, with the group now branching out into EDM/Dance music. The remix is both elegant and pulsating, with a memorable and pulsating take on the chorus that will be stuck in your head for days. It is a certified club banger and can easily fit in between acts such as Zedd and The Chainsmokers.
“One More Night” was originally the Tokyo-based group’s first step towards releasing music in the U.S. Fitting to the theme of the band’s name, the origin of End Of The World began at the lowest point of lead singer-songwriter Fukase’s life. Due to his continuous battle with mental illness, Fukase checked himself into a mental hospital at 17 years old and spent a year of his life in psychiatric care. In order to regain what had been lost in his life, he began fully enveloping himself in his music and found renewed life through penning his honest feelings into song. Years later, Fukase reconnected with a few childhood friends and began writing and playing music as a group. The result of these writing sessions created a unique blend of Top 40 pop-hooks with lyrics themed to subjects like atheism and anarchy. As a nod to Fukase’s history in the inception of his music, the band collectively chose the name SEKAI NO OWARI, which translates to End Of The World. Despite the ominous name, it was a new beginning for the band.
Tep No meanwhile has become notable for his restrained club style, which follows in the footsteps of tropical house artists such as Kygo. He began releasing a series of songs in 2014 without revealing anything about his background or identity. His early songs were often marked by electric guitar and breathy male vocals in addition to electronics. Multiple songs featuring vocalist Jessica Hart, including “Soul Phazed” and “Never Been to Spain,” appeared in 2015, and Tep No hit the Billboard streaming charts with “The Best Crew” in 2016.
