‘Lune Rouge’ was released last October and marked TOKiMONSTA’s first album in four years. A smoky, patient, and cohesive 11-part offering, ‘Lune Rouge’ mixes modern sensibilities with old-school sounds to make for a heady brew of moonlit music. The release received support and praise from the likes of DJ Mag, The Quietus, DUMMY Mag, Hunger Magazine and Wonderland.
