Kuunatic | Future Yard | Future Yard

Tokyo-based tribal psych trio KUUNATIC bring their pulsating music to Future Yard on 26th May 2022, fresh off the release of their debut album Gate Of Klüna via Glitterbeat Records. Bolstered by diverse global sonics and powerful vocals, Kuunatic’s music explores ritual drumming, pulsing basslines, atmospheric keyboard sounds and Japanese traditional instruments. Drawing on the members’ different musical and cultural perspectives, the record reveals a mesmerising soundworld that transcends genres and hemispheres and succeeds in being both boldly experimental and wildly catchy. Support on the night comes from Ani Glass + OORYA.
Tickets on sale now.

Kuunatic formed in Tokyo in 2016, by three female members with completely different musical and cultural backgrounds. They explore primitive drumming, pulsating basslines and atmospheric keyboard sounds with Japanese local instruments. Topping with three-part vocals, its music makes listeners trip into their ritual translunary land.

Their first EP KUURANDIA was self-released in December 2017, and a single, Roho Ulio Toweka, was released as a split 7″ record with CROCODELIA from Taiwanese label MUTNTKND in August 2018. In the following year, the band contributed a song Dewbow for French label Akuphone’s Japanese female artists compilation album Seito, released in March, and toured Europe for the first time, including performances at Raw Power Festival in London, and SuperVliegSuperMouche Fest in Brussels. Their first EP was also reissued on vinyl by South Korean label Extra Noir in November 2019.
