Having completed previous album Kofū’, Meitei was left with over 60 fully formed tracks. These songs form the basis of Kofū II.
Designed to make “us to reassess our relationship with the past”, Kofū II aims to explore Japanese identity and history through samples, hauntological sonics, musique concrete, and “spectral vignettes.”
Kofū II follows Meitei’s Kofū album, released in 2020.
