One of their demos, moujiki fuyu ga kuru, hit #1 on the Kansai (western Japan) area student geared CRJ-west charts. It was voted as the #1 song overall for the year as well on that chart. bonobos joined on the label GALATIC and released their first mini-album, Headphone Magic. This album sold fairly well for the indie newcomers as it hit the Oricon chart. That same year brought the major debut of bonobos with the song that made them popular in the first place, moujiki fuyu ga kuru.
It would be followed in January of 2004 with the single water. In March of 2004 they released their first full major album, Hover Hover. This brought a lot of attention to the group as they would perform in the Rising Sun Rock Festival that summer. bonobos are still going strong as they released their second major album, electlyric, in May of 2005.
