Supernaive – Nekomata
French producers and brothers Supernaive are releasing their debut album Nekomata. Recorded between Paris and Tokyo, the record features elements of electronica and RnB akin to the esoteric stylings Jamie xx or Mount Kimbie.
The brothers nod to French Touch while drawing on Japanese cultural reference points, most obviously in the masks they wear which are a symbol of eternal youth in Japanese Noh theatre.
The album absorbs sounds and influences from reality as well as the ethereal – for example on ‘Taking Over’, which has its roots in noughties hip hop, the bell sample comes from striking a broken buoy the pair found on a beach in Iceland and took back to their Paris studio.
