Kikagaku Moyo share video for new song ‘Cardboard Pile,’ detail final album ‘Kumoyo Island’

Japanese psych-rockers Kikagaku Moyo have detailed their final album, Kumoyo Island, out May 6th via their own label, Guruguru Brain. Today, they’ve previewed the collection with “Cardboard Pile.”

After the release of Kumoyo Island, Kikagaku Moyo will go on an indefinite hiatus, so every release is pretty special, including today’s “Cardboard Pile.” On the album, and the new single, the band return to their roots.

“Cardboard Pile” is the perfect preview of this sound, serving as a trippy journey through psychedelic soundscapes. Alongside the track, Kikagaku Moyo have shared an animated video from Katsushika Susshin. The captivating clip features colourful, dreamy animations as it takes you on a journey through time and space.
