Japanese post-rock band tricot to perform in Singapore

Singapore-based record label/concert promoter KittyWu has announced that Japanese alternative rock band tricot will be performing at Home Club on 14 March.

The band consists of its 3 female founding members, Ikkyu Nakajima (vocals/guitar), Motoko “Motifour” Kida (guitar/backing vocals), and Hiromi “hirohiro” Sagane (bass/backing vocals); soon after its formation, the current drummer and only male band member Kazutaka Komaki joined in May 2011.

Known for championing post-rock in Singapore and following the recent announcement of an And So I Watch You From Afar show, KittyWu has presented bands such as Envy, Toe, Mono, Mogwai, Explosions in the Sky, as well as I Am David Sparkle and Amateur Takes Control, who are both are part of the label’s artist management roster.

tricot’s experimental music fits perfectly within the label’s specialized roster, consisting of melodic post-rock-inspired sounds and complex rhythm reminiscent of math rock with perfectly mixed elements of pure, fragile, but strong vocals and unpredictable song transitions.

And yep, you can be guaranteed their live show is just as intense as their description:
