Kikagaku Moyo‘s latest album, ‘Masana Temples’ was released through the label they run, Guruguru Brain, in Oct 2018. It 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.
