Three musicians, TOMC, Gimgigam, and MON/KU, who have been rapidly gaining attention in recent years, have miraculously collaborated. The result is an unexpected, ultra-aggressive rock/post-punk tune.

Each of the three musicians is active in a variety of genres such as beat, ambient, city pop, and experimental, and they have created a buzz both in Japan and abroad.
For this album, TOMC was in charge of conception, artwork, rhythm/bass tracks, and chorus, while Gimgigam layered solid post-punk-inspired guitars, and MON/KU added florid, incendiary vocals and edits to the final product.

The result is an "atypical rock anthem" unlike any of the three musicians. This is a killer tune recommended not only to fans of 80's/2000's post-punk, but also to listeners drawn to recent bands like Molchat Doma and Måneskin.

  • MON/KU

    2018年12月より作曲活動を開始。翌年1月に初制作の楽曲 “ S I N K “ をSoundCloudにて公開。同時期、似た経緯で突如インターネット上に現れた 浦上・ケビン・ファミリー(現 浦上・想起)、松木美定らと共に界隈のポップス好きの間で話題となる。音楽経歴なし・楽器は全く弾けず、イメージのみで作曲し、DAWにて楽曲を制作する。カテゴライズ不能な彼の楽曲は、強いて言うなら、Electronic MusicをフォーマットとしたExperimentalなAvant Pop、Dark Popと言えるであろう。影響を受けたアーチストとして、RADIOHEAD、björk、James Blake、Sigur Rós、Bon Iver、Mogwai などを挙げている。
