Japanese rock quartet, ONE OK ROCK, brings boyband British pop into their soundscape with 5 Seconds Of Summer in “Take What You Want.” The piece has some punk flavor to it, where the fieriness of percussive thumps is balanced with the lightness of pop. Stream below:

“Take What You Want” is from One Ok Rock’s eighth record, Ambitions, which was released on September 2016. ONE OK ROCK started out in 2005 when they were barely high school students. They gained wide acclaim for their 2010 single, “Kanzen Kankaku Dreamer,” and have toured around the world since. Recently signed with the label Fueled by Ramen, ONE OK GO has been reaching out to a broader audience with their English record Ambitions and are currently on tour:
