Moon Stream is a new musical unit combining the forces of Japanese visual style rock with the sounds of the New York underground. Created in early 2011, Moon Stream is fronted by Satsuki (vocals, ex RENTRER EN SOI) and Tomo (guitar, echostream). These two veterans of the early Visual Kei explosion in Japan are now active on opposite ends of the globe. The first half of the band’s name “Moon” is derived from Satsuki’s own name, while the latter half, taken from Tomo’s band name “echostream,” fuses to create a fresh concept for a band unlike any other – channeling the energy of the moon as a powerful musical force. Displaying their visual and musical talent from signature rock sounds, ambient compositions, to dance rock music, their US debut launched Moon Stream into the sky.
As ex-vocalist of popular visual kei rock band RENTRER EN SOI, Satsuki launched his solo career on Feb 14, 2009 in order to pierce his own musical aesthetics. Satsuki has performed in America for piano concerts and anime conventions such as Oni-Con 2009. In addition to regularly headlining visual kei concert events in Japan, Satsuki has also performed in theater and is steadily expanding his range of activities.
