Stray Kids debuted under JYP entertainment in 2018 post a survival show of the same name. Having spent only five years in the industry, they have already created a niche for many rookie groups by their impressive composition, song writing skills and their distinct “mala” sound.

Stray Kids’ music focuses on self-discovery in the midst of this maze-like world, as they pack their energies together to generate quality tracks. Their choreography is intense and their heavy electronic influence sends the audience into an adrenaline rush that only a few can achieve.

A major plus point of Stray Kids’ is that they’re one of the few self-producing idol groups. Members Bang Chan, Changbin and Han are the group’s in-house production trio, also known as 3RACHA. Stray Kids' discography since the group's debut has been seen with the 3RACHA credits as they have carved the group’s identity – from lyrics to composition to production.

Stray Kids' achieved a major feat with this one. The single Back Door was selected by Time Magazine in their list of Top 10 best songs of 2020.
