Like Bernard Sumner and Johnny Marr’s Electronic, Hocori is a Japanese, Tokyo-based duo, which combines two unique music personalities.
Vocalist Yousuke Momono is the frontman of post-punk outfit Monobright (モノブライト), who once played as support act of Bloc Party, and last week announced their restart with two live performances planned for the next year.
Both Yousuke and Takuji come from Hokkaido, the northern island of Japan. And they both love Chromeo and Todd Rundgren. Starting from their common place, they’ve made a mixture of their inspirations – and appeal. You can check out their music tastes here.
