MOWUKIS | Animals Used To Scare
After several years spent collaborating and experimenting with various bands, composing for movie directors, choreographers, contemporary circus acts and many other projects, Louis-Louise Kay, multi-instrumentalist and ever-changing musician, finally decided to settle to write his first solo album. This means a decade of gathering instruments, toys, synths and FX ended up in one room, with the assumed challenge to reinvent himself and find, through all these musical notions, a new musical playground, with his voice acting as a thread to unify the songs together into one coherent universe. The project was called MOWUKIS. The result is an 11 track album, full of influences ranging from electronica to pop, evocative names as diverse as Apparat, The Knife, Four Tet, Caribou, Colleen, or Jose Gonzales.
This is the first single video from MOWUKIS called “Animals to Scare.” The song comes from the album “No Answers No.” Collaborating with French animator / director Titouan Bordeau, this video is beautiful, strange, and dreamlike.
