You can’t help but ask what the funk when you see Crystal’s “Kimi Wa Monster” ft. Matias Aguayo for the first time. It looks like karaoke, but at the same time what the streets of Japan would look like if you were on acid. Built on wavy percussions that are sliced with chunky beats, “Kimi Wa Monster” feels chopped and fluid at the same time. The video has the aestheticism of chintzy karaoke that grasps your attention for being humorously confusing:

Comprised of Ryota Miyake and Sunao Maruyama, Crystal is a Tokyo-made band that started back in 2008. They debuted their album Crystal Station 64 back in 2015 and carry influences of of artists such as Jean-Michel Jarre, Yellow Magic Orchestra and Art of Noise. You can tell from their old school electro vibe. They are working on releasing a new record this fall, so meanwhile you can follow the duo on Facebook and Instagram.
