Nao Katafuchi + Isolated Youth
Konzert | Synth, Coldwave, Darkwave, Post Punk
Nao Katafuchi is a Japanese artist who makes electronic music with a guitar & a synth box, creates his own world of cold romantic wave.
Growing up in the suburb of Tokyo in the 1980’s, Nao spent his teenage years on the streets of Shibuya searching for instruments and records, falling in love with electronic music and inhaling everything that the district had to offer. The urban flair of Tokyo, where the growth of hi-tech industry was years ahead from the rest of the world, influenced what would later become his retro-futuristic trademark sound.
Isolated Youth (now at FABRIKA label) were formed in a small coastal city north of Stockholm in March 2017 by brothers William & Axel Mårdberg along with Egon Westberg Larsson and Andreas Geidemark.
Their sound is reminiscent of what postpunk once was, but Isolated Youth have their own distinctive and original approach. The vulnerable fragility and soaring beauty in the vocal notes collide with ringing guitars, playful, but strong and evocative, base lines and haunting drums. The lyrics circle around themes like the ever-present search for an escape from a harsh world and the desire to protect one’s dearest from harm. The lyrics depict brutality but also ever-lasting emotional bonds. Now, as they reach an international audience the band release an EP, “Warfare,” which captures the essence of Isolated Youth.
