Mowukis is a solo-project of Louis-Louise Kay, a french musician and songwriter based in Montpellier.
Mowukis has just recently released his debut album No Answers No; a collection of songs capturing a broad range of atmospheres, emotions and assumed collision between synthesizers, homemade drum beats and classical instruments.
Lifted from his debut LP is latest single ‘Animals Used To Scare’; as fine an introduction to Mowukis as you could ask for. It is a rich multi-faced sound with constantly shifting musical landscapes, brimming with colourful ideas and influences ranging from modern pop to electronica. The synthesizers, homemade drum beats, and classical instruments shifts the tonality constantly, it is a rare creature than can be all things at once and individual at the same time. It is in the juxtaposition of sound and feeling where Mowukis excels; ‘Animals Used To Scare’ is simultaneously moody, almost sullen, yet bright and hopefully at the same time.
Directed by Titouan Bordeau from studio Folimage, the animated video is a colourful, eccentric and dreamy piece tracing the journey of a mysterious man through ever-changing scenery.
