‘Borderline’ is the theme song for the Nippon TV series ‘Burari Tochu Gesha no Tabi’, broadcast April through June, with the song being written specially for the program.

With its refreshing guitar line and light rhythmic groove, this easygoing medium-tempo song features a gentle melody and lyrics filled with a sense of travel, carrying the listener one step further toward their destination.

MONKEY MAJIK are a four-piece hybrid rock band based in Sendai, Miyagi Prefecture, Japan, comprising Canadian brothers Maynard (vocals and guitar) and Blaise (vocals and guitar), and Japanese rhythm section TAX (drums) and DICK (bass).

The band released their first single, ‘fly’, in 2006.

Their second single ‘Around The World’ was used as the theme song for the Fuji TV drama series ‘Saiyuki’, becoming an explosive hit; later their song ‘Sora wa Marude’ was featured in a commercial and established the band’s unique artistry.

Since then, MONKEY MAJIK have written countless songs for commercials, TV drama series, anime series and movies, while also collaborating with and producing songs for numerous other artists.

In 2011, following the major earthquake and tsunami in Japan’s Tohoku region where the band are based, MONKEY MAJIK were appointed as Tourism and Goodwill Ambassadors of Tohoku.

Later the same year, they supported the ‘SEND Ai’ recovery project, participating in charity concerts and auctions; the band have continued to support recovery in the Tohoku region since then.

They are also active overseas, performing world tours including shows in Asia and North America.
