TOKiMONSTA (Apr.8th) Live Report at The Hoxton
By Creators’ Lounge staff Yoshimi(Torocal Girls / トロカル女子)

Friday, 8 April.
It was the end of the week so the people who want to take comfort such as alcohol and music gathered downtown.
I also decided to go to The Hoxton for supplying energy.

I heard very nice house sounds in the venue that made me want to dance.
By this time alcohol was much tastier than usual.
I expected it would be a great night.

A petite woman’s silhouette appeared on the stage in a dim light.
She was TOKiMONSTA, a flash light showed us her beautiful face.
I thought the smokes were like fantastical fogs.

The venue was filled with her music.
I fell into a sense like I were in a deep forest.
It was an illusion that was made by her sounds with depth.

Her music was not too hard, but not too sweet.
It was a wonderful balance.
Of course, her sound was not countrified and not the kind of feeling music either.
However I thought her music had the power to release the heart of the urban people.

I took a deep breath for getting musical negative ions.
I felt my body absorbed enough oxygen, alcohol and brilliant music.
The audience was also dancing freely.

TOKiMONSTA was such as an oasis that appeared suddenly in a city.

4月8日金曜日
今週も一週間が終わり、お酒や音楽、都会の癒しを求める人々が集まる夜のダウンタウン。
私もエネルギー補充にThe Hoxtonへ足を運ぶ。

自然と体が揺れるような、心地よいハウスサウンド。
そうなると体に入れるアルコールもいつもより美味しい。
素敵な夜になる予感がした。

薄闇の中、ステージに小柄な女性のシルエットが浮かび上がる。
TOKiMONSTA、一瞬のライトが彼女の端整な顔をあらわにする。
スモークが幻想的な霧のようだと思った。

彼女の音が会場を満たす。
ふわっと自分がどこか深い森の中にいるような錯覚に陥る。
彼女の生み出す音の奥行きがそうさせるのか。

彼女の音楽はハード過ぎず、また女性だからといって甘過ぎない。
ちょうどいいさじ加減。
決して田舎っぽいわけでもフィーリングミュージックでもない。
だが彼女の音楽は都会の人々の心を解放する力を持っているように感じた。

音楽のマイナスイオンを吸い込むように、深呼吸をする。
酸素とアルコール、最高の音楽が身体中をめぐるのを感じる。
周りのオーディエンスも気持ちよさそうに踊っていた。

TOKiMONSTAは都会に突如として生まれたオアシスのようだった。
