This music video and their upcoming album were able to be made thanks to the crowd funding efforts of their generous backers on Indiegogo and Japanese crowd funding site Motion Gallery in July 2017.
The music video and sounds for the upcoming album represent the new KAO=S. With the retirement of shamisenist Jack from the band Shuji and Kaori have worked hard to create a new unique KAO=S sound for the album. KAO=S’s new album includes various ethnic musical instruments such as the Tabla (India), Erhu (China), Morin khuu (Mongol), Djembe (Africa) and dulcimer. This has given rise to KAO=S’s new sound which is multinational and organic.
