Gargle, a duo from Tokyo, Japan, offers instrumental music combining mixed emotions which is trying to express a gleam of light in the darkness. They create cinematic music using huge range of dynamics based on the sounds of guitar, accordion and piano mixed with the layers of ambient sounds. Their music is commonly categorized as ambient, post-rock, experimental and modern classical music, however, as the lines between each genre has started to blur nowadays, their music is differing from typical music of each of the categories.
Gargle took part in two collaboration albums of Draff Krimmy from Norway and Void’s Anatomy from Canada. Gargle has played shows around in Tokyo and also went on a short tour in Europe in the autumn of 2011. They intend to keep playing shows to interact and share time and space with people everywhere. The guitarist Jun is also doing his solo project under the name of Yawning and has released an EP on Fluttery Records.
