After relentlessly touring the world in 2018, including a sold out show at London's Scala, Kikagaku Moyo have announced plans to hit the road again in 2019. They'll be bringing their mesmerising live show to the UK again this May, playing across the country before co-headlining the andmoreagain day festival at Electric Brixton on May 25th alongside Wooden Shjips.
Full dates are:
Kikagaku Moyo's latest album, ‘Masana Temples’ (which was released through their own DIY label Guruguru Brain in Oct 2018) was inspired by various experiences the band had with traveling through life together, ranging from the months spent on tour to making a pilgrimage to Lisbon to record the album with jazz musician Bruno Pernadas. More than the literal interpretation of being on a journey, the album’s always changing sonic panorama reflects the spiritual connection of the band moving through this all together. Life for a traveling band is a series of constant metamorphoses, with languages, cultures, climates and vibes changing with each new town. The only constant for Kikagaku Moyo throughout their travels were the five band members always together moving through it all, but each of them taking everything in from very different perspectives. Inspecting the harmonies and disparities between these perspectives, the group reflects the emotional impact of their nomadic paths. The music is the product of time spent in motion and all of the bending mindsets that come with it.
