Coming from the land of the rising sun, Mouse on the Keys is a trio instrumental band based in Tokyo. Formed in 2006, the group consists of former members of Japanese post-rock band Nine Days Wonder — Akira Kawasaki (drum, keyboards) and Atsushi Kiyota (piano, keyboards). They teamed up with Daisuke Niitome (piano, keyboards) who has composed music for countless jazz‐funk and hip hop bands. The unique sound of the band’s drums, two pianos, and two keyboards combines the sense of urgency from rock, hardcore and heavy metal with tastes of contemporary classical, jazz and various dance music. With the release of their 2nd mini album Machinic Phylum last year, Mouse on the Keys fits into a genre of their own and continue to stand at the forefront of the Japanese indie scene. Catch the band this coming Wednesday at KLPAC.
