Following the death of flute player Yoko Kasugai in 2011, FUNKIST went on a tour of more than fifty locations in 2013, proving that they could overcome both death and loss of members. "Gypsy," the title track of their newest release, is a killer tune they've already performed live, a CD release of which has been eagerly awaited by fans. This definitive album by FUNKIST was created with the theme of "REBORN."
The jacket photo for "Gypsy" was shot at Shibuya Scramble Crossing in the early morning and shows many people moving around in the background. FUNKIST will be holding a release party for the album on March 15 at Ebisu LIQUIDROOM followed by an album release one-man tour that stops in Nagasaki, Fukuoka, Nagoya, and Osaka. There are great expectations for FUNKIST's evolved sound to heat up the music scene in 2014.
