向井秀徳 (SHUTOKU MUKAI)
LEO 今井 (LEO IMAI)
Kimonos was formed in 2010 by Leo Imai and Shutoku Mukai from Zazen Boys.
Their music is a blend of vintage synths, post-punk riffs, heavy beats, and folk lyricism.
Both cold and passionate, both stoical and decadent, both futuristic and nostalgic, their debut album is a fitting soundtrack to the manic intensity of Tokyo City.
Drummer Greg Saunier from Deerhoof and bassist Ichiro Yoshida from Zazen Boys also make ripping guest appearances on the record.
Clean out the wax from your ears and listen!!
