Kuro Deko is a new wave band based in Tokyo Japan, the members are Jesus Salinas and Elliot Cormack. Two musicians from very different backgrounds.
Jesus, originally from Mexico had spent his life traveling the world, living in different countries and writing music while following the scenes of Berlin, London, Mexico City and eventually Tokyo where he met Elliot. Elliot had left the music scene of Brighton, England and moved to Tokyo to start an indie rock band. After catching a live show Jesus asked Elliot if he’d like to sing on the first single, A Ghost in Town. Jesus’s desire to re-explore the sounds of 80’s synth and new wave music led to them writing a full album together with Jesus exploring the sounds of vintage synthesizers and other instruments creating the melodies and Elliot writing lyrics. The final songs are a product of many long conversations about relationships, moments in time and places they’ve lived and loved. The songs were recorded between Tokyo and Mexico City with the production of Jay De La Cueva (Titan), Diego Solorzano (Rey Pila / Cult Records) and Nick Zinner re-editing and mixing their first single A Ghost in Town.
