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 KUUNATICs much awaited debut album. 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. KUUNATIC are Fumie Kikuchi on keys and vocals, Yuko Araki on drums and vocals and Shoko Yoshida on bass and vocals.


…...And Three KUU years have passed since the birth of our planet KUURANDIA.

Sacred bells ring at the dawn of a new era. Our new empress rises with magical refrains. As the planet prospears, Kuurandians hold a ball under the full moon and celebrate the richness of the harvest. The peaceful time seems to last forever…. until a gigantic volcano emerges in the middle of moonrise mountains. KUUNATIC chants enigmatic mantras like praying, to prevent its eruption. However, unidentified invaders appear from its roaming lava, and the war of predation begins. KUUNATIC fights and drops their magical spells, and finally they conquer the battle. Then three pythonesses sing a mystic triumph song, leading their people to a deep dreamy forest.

“Gate of Klüna” is the first full album of tribal / dreamy psych band KUUNATIC from Japan. This is a concept album about how their planet KUURANDIA has begun, evolved and explored. It consists of 8 songs and each song has a story to tell.

Released by Glitterbeat Records on 29th October 2021.
