The 3rd Digital Single released by Japanese-Western fusion trio "TAGA" for 3 consecutive months.

With over 140,000 YouTube subscribers, YouTuber guitarist SATSUMA3042 and bassist Tsune Takahashi of Pororoca Lindo as guest players, this song is a unique fusion of traditional Japanese instruments and Hard Rock Guitar.

This song "Kusari (Chain)" is a little different from the previous two songs, with an organ phrase that is entwined with a tricky guitar riff, a mellow guitar solo that contrasts with the intense Tsugaru Shamisen solo, and rushing Japanese drums in the last part. Many highlights are mixed in one song.
