In Japanese legend, it is said that on certain summer nights, hundreds of terrifying "yokai" demons parade the streets, spiriting away any human who should be unfortunate enough to witness their procession.
This upbeat, catchy song offers a different take on the tale, and a rare chance to be immersed in the yokai's wild celebrations, as they dance and frolic to the melody.
The music video for Hyakki Yagyo has already been released on YouTube, so you can enjoy the track along with its vibrant visuals!
This conceptual band draws you in to a familiar fairy tale world... or so you thought? In fact the free-spirited MiRi has taken these tales and reinvented them, bringing brand new worlds to life; the like of which have never been seen or heard before. You, the spectator, are invited in to these "rewritten" worlds. The fantastical world view OGK creates with his composition is paired with MiRi's unexpectedly deep yet delicate voice, and an aggressive band sound. From this miracle collaboration is born an intense originality and an egotistical perspective that cannot be found anywhere else. Comparing these brand-new fairy tales to the ones you know and love as you listen, makes for an enchanting musical experience.
