Desert.」於上一隻單曲「Bite you」的搖滾風格大相逕庭,以2-Step的節奏為基盤的伴奏配上原聲吉他,簡潔又強勁有力,muque來說也是一首具有突破性的歌曲。



歌曲封面照同上一隻單曲「Bite you」同樣由由插圖、周邊商品設計,角色設計,動漫繪製等豐富經驗的 Give Me! Tomotaka擔當製作。繼上一次描繪的muque的成員們扮演的RPG角色不斷冒險的故事,這次則描繪了成員們在冒險進程中面對遇到強敵勇敢面對的場景,兩部作品具有連續的故事性。

Japanese four-piece band muque – featuring members Asakura (vocals and guitar), Lenon (bass), takachi (trackmaking and drums) and Kenichi (guitar) – released their new digital single ‘Desert.’ on Wednesday, May 15, 2024. The band’s name is pronounced “muku”.

The new song ‘Desert.’ is a major departure from the rock approach of muque’s previous single ‘Bite you’: With its simple, impactful track based on a two-step beat and its killer earworm acoustic guitar hook, ‘Desert.’ charts a new frontier for muque.

“Nothing matters,” “I don’t need anything,” “It’s all pointless” – with such themes, the lyrics paint a desolate world that feels barren like a Desert. But they are ultimately hopeful, filled with desire for the oasis that lies beyond.

The song shows a new, empowering side to muque, who have been able to overcome the trials and tribulations of making music thanks to the strength they gain from the love lavished upon them by their audience.

The jacket artwork was created by Give Me! Tomotaka, a multi talented artist from Japan whose work includes illustration, merchandise design, character design and animation, and who also created the artwork for ‘Bite you’. The previous jacket image showed the members of muque as RPG characters embarking on a great adventure – and this time we see them preparing for battle, as their epic story continues.

muque profile

muque is a four-piece band from Fukuoka formed in May 2022, comprising Asakara(Vo>), Lenon(Ba), takachi(Track make&Dr), and Kenichi(Gt).

muque’s song is produced mainly by takachi, who is the band’s drummer, trackmaker, and song arranger, and Asakura, who is in charge of the topline and lyricist.

Their most appealing features are the contemporaneous tracks by takachi, who prefers not only American and British music, but worldwide music including ASIAN global beats, the poetic lyrics by Asakura, and their melody lines with a Japanese feel.

This song creates a unique world through Asakura’s emotional vocalization.

The band’s name “muque” combines the French word “musique”, meaning “music,” and the Japanese word “無垢”(muku), which means “purity”. The band’s name expresses the desire to continue producing only the kind of music they want to make, without being influenced by their surroundings.
