Kyota Sugai – Butterfly

Who’s up for some psychedelic, funkadelic, trippy rock music? If that’s you, then you need to look no further, for we have found exactly what you’re looking for. Meet the eccentric Japanese singer-songwriter, Kyota Sugai, who is bringing that old-school rock flavour back, with a fresh new wave approach!

Kyota’s brand of psychedelic rock stands out from the more traditional bands, as one of his latest releases “Butterfly” shows. Stylistic, textured and enigmatic, the release reflects Kyota Sugai’s  influences which range from The Beatles, to Beach Boys, Syd Barret, Peter Ivers and more…

Having released his first album “Italy” at the tender age of 20, followed by his most successful album to date “Maddona” 3 years later, and finally his 3rd album “Y533” which is available for purchasing and listening on iTunes, Kyota is steadily setting himself up for a great music career. With great artistry and artwork to accompany his music, the Japanese visionary is a well rounded and uber creative musical mind. Mind-bending guitars, meet quirky arrangements and funky, conceptual vocals, moulding the talented musician’s sound into groundbreaking, chilled and masterful bodies of work.

What we like most about Kyota Sugai’s “Butterfly” is its relaxing, dreamy and sculptural soundscape which paints a picture of a utopian singer with plenty more to give, and complete freedom of expression over his music. Just what we needed, an artist whose music won’t be defined by a specific genre but by its ability to trascend such concepts. He’s something like a Picasso with a guitar, on magic mushrooms… Pure, psychedelic, sonic art!
