Listen to Kikagaku Moyo’s brand new eight-minute psychedelic wig out

Japanese psychedelic warriors Kikagaku Moyo have released a brand new track ahead of their upcoming fourth album.

Dripping Sun is an eight minute journey that switches between trippy textures and a pounding crescendo.

“This is a day trip song,” says singer/drummer Go Kurosawa. “Get up, ride on a horse, take a walk, explore, and go back to your place and sleep. Often within the trip, you will find something that makes you feel nostalgic, something that brings back memories of the past and no matter how crazy the journey is, we always come back to where we were or where we belong and we feel calm. That was the idea of song when I wrote it.”

The song appears on the Tokyo band’s fourth album, Masana Temples, which will be released on October 5 via their own label, Guruguru Brain.

Kikagaku Moyo begin their European tour in Manchester in November.
