Tokyo twins Mont Blanc return to the UK for a show at Liverpool Sound City. Catch them on 19 May at Studio 2, Parr Street, Liverpool!
Formed in the womb but formalised in 2008, Japanese duo MontBlanc mix electronica with live instruments (and sometimes a backing band) to create an eccentric style.
Identical twin brothers Gen and Dai ooze an infectious fervour that has seen their party-starting live act spread to venues all over Tokyo plus a UK tour (including a show at In The City) in 2010. The fresh vibe of their recordings belies their studio-based creation.
Gen and Dai’s influences range from RJD2 and LCD Soundsystem to Beck and Modest Mouse, with an affinity for Manchester acts like Joy Division. They create music in their Tokyo home studio, performing at clubs and venues as a twosome or with a band. In Japan, it seems the best things come in twos.
