KIKAGAKU MOYO: ''Kikagaku Moyo means geometric patterns in Japanese...''
Hello, we're glad to have an opportunity to talk to you and introduce you to the Croatian fans on Perun.hr. What can you say about your music being labeled as psychedelic/space rock? What is influencing the music you create?
Well, we always enjoy hearing how other people classify our music. Recently someone labelled us "Tao Rock", whatever that is, haha! We are influenced by non-musical experiences such as art, films, books or even people we meet. For example looking at a picture and thinking about what kind of music would fit with it is a good way to explore our creativity. 

How much did your music evolve since 2013.?
Since we have been living together in the same house and have spent lots of time touring abroad, we have arrived at a place where we can know one anothers' minds without having to speak our thoughts aloud. This intimate way of communicating is thrown into starkest relief when we do an improvised jam.

What was the reason behind choosing a name "Kikagaku Moyo" for the band?
Kikagaku Moyo means geometric patterns in Japanese. During long overnight jam sessions I started to see geometric patterns on the backs of my eyelids. It was characteristic of this mind state that is halfway between awake and asleep that was very psychedelic.

It's been 3 years since your founding, and you have already recorded 3 albums. What makes you so productive?
I don't actually think we're that productive, to be honest! We often say "Let's write some music together", and then end up talking about good food we recently ate, or books we have read.

Are you preparing some new material for the next album? Tell us something about it?
We have some songs already written, but we're not sure yet if they are going to be on next album.

Which one of your albums do you prefer?
Frankly, we like all of them. That's our history.

Do you have some plans for touring this summer?
We will come back to Europe for some festivals such as Liverpool Psych Fest.

Is there any gig that is the most favourite one for you? Do you enjoy touring?
The show last night in Paris was pretty memorable. We played in a small venue in a basement where there was no AC, and we were totally soaked wet. The audience was equally hot, dancing and moshing. We had heard that audiences in Paris are generally quiet, so that was a nice surprise. 

Which bands would you like to play or tour with?
We would love to play with some Swedish bands like Trad Gras Och Stener, Dungen or Our Solar System. 



In your upcoming concert in Zagreb, you're going to play with Croatian band ONO, whose music is described as psychedelic/krautrock/drone. Have you checked out their music yet?
Not yet, but we're super excited to see them.

What kind of music do you like to listen to in your free time?
I like to alternate between new music and old music so I don't get stuck in one generation or style. Easy access to so many different types of music, including obscure tracks is one of the big advantages of being a musician nowadays.

Do you have something special planned for your gig at Club Močvara in Zagreb?
Yes, we will play an improvised jam; we cannot even begin to predict how it will sound! Probably we will take a concept and try to express by our own way.
