Kikagaku Moyo - Masana Temples album artwork

Artist: Phannapast Taychamaythakool

The artist is Phannapast Taychamaythakool from Thailand. We came across her artwork while browsing through Instagram one day. When we came up with the theme of our new album Masana Temples, we really sought to describe it through patterns, colours, and textures. Having travelled through so many different countries and cultures this past year, we truly felt her artwork perfectly portrayed this beautiful cultural clash we experienced together as a band through our world travels.

Her artwork is very unique in that she can combine colours that normally would never match and create intricate universes through her one of a kind drawing style. This was perfect for the story we wished to tell for the album. Together we were able to create a picture book of all the musical influences we developed as a band through our world travels. All of these influences mixed together form the very special world of Masana Temples. We talked a lot about this theme and concept in our mind, which she translated beautifully through her amazing curiosity, inner colours, and imagination.

Kikagaku Moyo's fourth album, Masana Temples, is out October 5th via their own label, Guruguru Brain. Listen to 'Dripping Sun' below.
