Almost six months after releasing their second full-length album, The Flowers of Romance, the Tokyo-based band Mouse on the Keys announces a Canadian tour, visiting cities in Quebec and Ontario.

Formed in 2006, with elements of jazz, funk, post‐rock and electronic music, Mouse on the Keys fits into a genre of its own. They offer a unique blend of minimally phrased piano and dynamic drumming. Standing at the forefront of the Japanese music scene, their live performances are a vibrant visual and aural experience. Watch the trippy video for the song Leviathan.

The trio consists of Akira Kawasaki and Atsushi Kiyota, two former members of the influential Japanese underground band Nine Days Wonder, and Daisuke Niitome, who has played drums and composed music for countless jazz, funk and hip hop bands. Discover their unique sound, comprising of two pianos, two keyboards and drums, on stage in Canada beginning February 4th.
