Kukushai is proudly presenting their album FRUITILE, released on 5.5.2017 at ZARS records.
The new album reflects the band’s distinct blend of melodic elements within unusual harmonic and rhythmical textures, painting a finely detailed sonic image of rich colors and accented bold lines.
The trio in its unconventional nature, weaves the songs together and seeks new possibilities in expression within the fields of alternative genres, but does not bypass musical nostalgia for novelty’s sake. Live, the compositions enable open improvisation that gives way to musical freedom, which results in an impressive, rich and above all, characteristic sound story.
The lyrics are playful, often surrealist, but predominantly expressing the bewilderment of man in the world he wants to control but has no real grasp of.
“Kukushai are not your usual jazz band at all. Sometimes it seems they just go crazy and fight through the huge genre palette of punk, rock, pop and anything alternative.” BEEHYPE
