Kikagaku Moyo have announced that they'll be bringing out a new LP called Masana Temples on October 5th, through their own label Gunguru Brain. It is the first they have recorded since all relocating from their native Japan to Europe.

The first cut to be shared from Masana Temples is 'Gatherings', which they tell us "is the oldest song on this record... With this song, we're expressing our journey in the world. We've gathered everyone in the band's ideas in this song along with the ideas and influences of the places we've visited throughout our travels."

The winding, laconic guitars intertwined with hypnotic synths render the idea of a long and well-traveled path, before ripping into a fuzzier and emphatic hook. Throughout, Go Kurosawa's voice guides us through their verdant scenery, lulling us into their sway, as they pull us deeper into a psych-rock furore for the last few minutes. Check it out below.

This frenetic energy is undoubtedly ideal for a spectacular live show, so try and catch them when they head to Europe to play these dates:
