Tokyo based tribal-psych trio
KUUNATIC is a thrilling Tokyo based tribal-psych trio bolstered by diverse global sonics and powerful female vocals. Drawing on the members’ different musical and cultural perspectives, their music explores ritual drumming, pulsing bass lines, atmospheric keyboard sounds and Japanese traditional instruments.
Having previously released an EP (“Kuurandia” / 2017) as well as a split 7” (with Taiwanese fuzz psych garage band Crocodelia), “Gate of Klüna” is KUUNATIC’s much awaited debut album that came out in 2021. Produced by Tim DeWit (Gang Gang Dance) the record reveals a mesmerizing soundworld that transcends genres and hemispheres and succeeds in being both boldly experimental and wildly catchy.
Support: Anastasia Coope
In 2022, It’s been 94 years since Andre Breton wrote his Manifesto of Surrealism. In the resulting near century creatives from all walks of art have turned to it for inspiration. Enter Upstate NY Ethereal folk artist Anastasia Coope, who paints in Surrealistic tones with her lyrics and vocal harmonies. Voices that pile layer upon surrealistic layer to amount to a cherubic choir: rueful, disruptive and whimsical all at once. Coope, a 19 year old student studying painting at Pratt Institute, only began taking music making more seriously during the summer Covid shutdown. Starting with just Garageband and her mother’s old Martin acoustic, Anastasia began writing the songs that form her debut EP release ‘Seemeely’.
