As a band they have only ever held two concerts one in July 2017 and another one in August 2019. The bands music is described as passionate positive and upbeat which serves as a signifcant contrast to the heavier lyrics. The lyrics often explore ideas such as love and human emotion and take inspiration from works of literature by Masuji Ibuse and Jules Verne.

Their eyedesigned logo mark is a motif of two moons facing each other which also serves as a clock hand portraying the time from 6:00 to night.

A year later in 2013 he would release a song titled Toumei Elegy which would peak on the platforms daily vocaloid rankings.

According to an interview with Japanese entertainment news website Natalie Nbuna and Suis met through a common acquantance and at the time Suis was a longtime fan of Nbunas vocaloid work. Suis then later first appeared as a guest vocalist during Nbunas two solo concerts in Tokyo.
