“tricot” is a Japanese alternative rock band formed in historical and cultural city Kyoto in Sep 1st, 2010. The band consists of 3 female founding members, Ikkyu Nakajima (vocals / guitar), Motoko “Motifour” Kida (guitar / backing vocals), and Hiromi “hirohiro” Sagane (bass / backing vocals). The current male drummer Kazutaka Komaki joined in May, 2011.
The band develops a very unique world with perfectly mixed elements of pure, fragile but strong vocals and thrilling, unpredictable but addictive song transition. The band’s experimental music primarily consists of melodic post-rock-inspired sounds and complex rhythm reminiscent of math rock. Their live performance is far more vibrant and intense than you could expect from their appearances and is highly praised by fans and media.
