0

On May 18, indie rock band Accusefive dropped a new single titled ‘Take Me With You.’

To say that fans are thrilled would be putting it lightly: Not only has the song’s related hashtag on Weibo amassed 44 million views but the music video on YouTube has also been played more than a million times.

Hailing from the northeastern part of the island of Taiwan, Accusefive was founded by lead vocalist and guitarist Pan Yun-an, singer Tsai Hsin-lun, and drummer Richard Lin in 2017.

In releasing ‘Take Me With You,’ the band sticks with what it knows best. After all, the award-winning trio is synonymous with romantic ballads like ‘Somewhere in Time’ and ‘Miss You Day and Night.’

Balancing pristine vocals, sentimental lyrics, and gentle guitar riffs, ‘Take Me With You’ taps into relatable themes such as nostalgia and first love.

The music video’s storyline has resonated with netizens, particularly with high school students who are soon to graduate and alumni who have left their days of innocence.

One Weibo user commented, “The music video has a youthful feel to it. I can’t wait to see the band performing in school uniforms!”

“The cover art brings us right back to our carefree school days,” said another. “A great song to listen to close to Chinese Valentine’s Day 520!”

On May 25, Accusefive’s label Bin Music also hinted at a possible tour of the Chinese mainland in the near future. Fans’ excitement went through the roof, and the hashtag for the tour garnered more than 27 million views in just a few days.

Since then, many have flooded the comments section, begging the band to include their cities in the upcoming tour.
