Quruli (くるり) are one of the most innovative rock outfits in Japan. They have a similar agenda to beehype – they look for unknown musical worlds in order to evolve.
Shigeru Kisihida (voc., g.) composed this song on an acoustic guitar when he stayed in Vienna. In the Austrian capital, he says, many different cultures from around the globe blend together – not only music, but also food, arts, or architecture.
This atmosphere has inspired Qururi to record such a progressive funky tune.
Wherever Quruli are at the moment, you can always catch them on Twitter or Facebook, and find their latest videos on their YouTube channel. There’s also the official website.
