INTERSECTION will have you ‘Falling’ for them with their latest release
INTERSECTION is a four-member, all-male Japanese/American group that made their official debut last month.
The group made their debut on October 4 with their debut song ‘Heart of Gold‘, and they have made a very fast comeback with the release of their latest song ‘Falling‘ on Friday, November 9. Both songs are sung in English. More about the music later, let’s get to know the members first.
The group’s members are Mika, William, Kazumi and Caelen. All four members are bilingual in Japanese and English. They were all born outside of Japan, but all claim Japanese heritage and have lived in Japan whilst growing up.
Mika is the group’s leader. He was born in Hawaii on December 21st, 1998. He originally wanted to be a professional soccer player and lived in Hawaii until he was 16 years old. He’s described as having a very gentle and caring personality, which makes him to be the group leader. As a child he had a strong background in music, playing both the violin and ukulele. Apart from music, his primary hobbies consist of surfing, photography, and skateboarding.
William was born in California on May 19th, 2000. His family moved to Japan when he was 2 years old. Having a strong background in swimming, William has previously been in training for the junior Olympics swimming team. At around age 14 he began to show a deep interest in arts, and decided to make that his main focus. William is the main vocalist of the group, and also helps with song composition.
Kazuma was born in New York on May 15th, 2000. His family lived in New York’s upper east side until he was 8 years old, when they decided to relocate to Japan. He is trained to play both the flute and saxophone, he was inspired to learn the instruments after hearing the songs on Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. Kazuma is also an exclusive model for the popular fashion magazine MEN’S NON-NO, he was awarded the semi-Grand Prix prize at an open audition in 2017. He is also currently attending Harvard University.
Caelan was born on a military base in Cuba on April 12th, 2001. Since his Irish American father works in the military, as a child he moved around quite a bit experiencing different cultures. Growing up he lived in Virginia Beach, Hawaii, Spain, and Japan. As the baby of the group, Caelan is the “mood maker” always making everyone laugh. Since he grew up exposed to so many different cultures, he has a wide taste in both music and interests.
INTERSECTION‘s ‘Falling‘ is their latest release. It’s a sweet, chill relaxed, summer vibe track that makes the most of their vocals layering them over each other. The clip is the perfect accompaniment for the song as it shows the members relaxing and just hanging out doing their thing.

The group made their debut in October with the release of ‘Heart of Gold‘. The song has a laid-back RNB feeling that seems to be a strength for the group. However, we’re excited to hear what other styles they’ll adopt throughout their career.
