I LOVE the cover of their album! Very different & creative.
Here's the MV for アノミー
It is also the OST for Heaven's Flower ~ The Legend of Arcana ヘブンズ・フラワー

I found out about this band after I started watching ヘブンズ・フラワー Heaven's Flower.
The song アノミー quickly caught my attention. The guitars, drums, the piano, and Hiromu Akita! His voice *O*
I'm in love with his deep voice!!!
If you like Japanese alternative and rock, then I think you will LOVE this band. 

Hiromu Akita - Vocals, Guitars
Manami Toyokawa - Keyboard
Yoshiaki Dewa - Guitars, Programming, Arrangements
Yoshihiro Kawamura - Drums
Daisuke Suzuki - Bass
Makoto Ideue - Guitars

Listening to this song.. it is very fit for the drama.  アノミー... It's when a person questions their existence and reject themselves from the social norm. In other words, a person who is (figuratively) lost. It occurs when one is distressed and saddened.

As you can see in the MV and if you understand Japanese. You can feel the sadness and
the pain of the song. Being lost, being unable to move forward, and not wanting to believe in the things you once believed in. This song truly describes how I feel at times. The instruments accompany  Hiromu's voice and doesn't over power it.

5/5 Amazarashi Album
I love all the tracks & listen to it often. But I wished there were instrumentals for this album :/
5/5 Drama
I really enjoyed the drama... although there were some parts that I wanted to add/change,
