The term "Kakoii" (かこいい) is a very common term in Japanese and is often used to describe something cool. And this is what Cacoy, a Japanese band, really is all about. Simply put, their music is downright cool.
Cacoy consists of members from Japanese band Tenniscoats (Saya and Takeshi Ueno), DJ Klock (a frequent collaborator of talented Japanese DJs such as Ken Ishii and DJ Krush) and Maher Shalal Hash Baz. Cacoy is also signed to the same label as Danish post rock guru, Efterklang. The tracks featured below are from their album "Human is Music" - a much clearer descendent of the Danish host's post-electronica-rock sound. The track "Yoko Majikick Ono" utilises simple electronic synths and beats to bring out the very essence of their style, which is light, but definitely not light-hearted.
