The band name Kikagaku Moyo stands for geometric patterns. Although the band describes their music as ‘feeling good music’, the band can be seen as a psychedelic band. Their music incorporates elements of classical Indian music, Krautrock, Traditional Folk, and 70s Rock. Kikagaku Moyo started in the summer of 2012 by drummer/vocalist Go Kurosawa and guitarist/vocalist Tomo Katsurada and they have been busking on the streets of Tokyo. The psychedelic band is part of Guruguru Brain, their own label, of which the home base is in Amsterdam.
The latest release of Kikagaku Moyo was the live EP Deep Fried Grandeur with Ryley Walker, recorded during the performance at Le Guess Who? Festival in 2018.
