In the 1990's, Z.O.A appeared suddenly with unique and ultramodern music dominating the scene, then disappeared.

At the same time, Boris started almost as if they were taking Z.O.A's place.

There was no chance to associate each other at that time, but the coalition had been wiggling below the surface.

Their relationship became more dense, with Morikawa, the central figure of Z.O.A, participating in Boris recent recordings, and forming a collective "A/N" by principal members of both bands.
In Feb. 2019 Z.O.A reunited and returned, having a solo show. They released a new CD and DVD at the same time produced by Atsuo (Boris), who has professed being influenced by Z.O.A for a while now.

The time was ripe to have a show by the two bands as “Z.O.A x Boris”.

However, it was postponed two times, once by natural disaster in October 2019 and again by pandemic in March 2020.

After the first postponement, the bands took the opportunity to create this work, and it was supposed to sell at their two-band show at Koenji High on March 8, 2020.

A conceptual collaboration album, “Refrain” by Z.O.A and Boris.
One track, 33 minutes, a suite transcending time and space by the two bands.

The long musical pilgrimage by these two unconventional bands echoes here as the proof of promised "inevitability".

Amongst the reoccurring overwhelming trifle, it echoes here as the proof of their existence.

Someday, no matter what.
