Biography

Kukui is a Japanese band consisting of Haruka Shimotsuki (vocal, lyrics & composition) and Myu (composition, arrangement & lyrics). They have produced songs for anime and games, most notably the Rozen Maiden anime series.

Originally, Shimotsuki and Myu of Refio (formerly a band made up of Myu and Riya) collaborated under the name Refio + Haruka Shimotsuki when they performed Toumei Shelter, ending theme for Rozen Maiden in 2004. Not long after they formed Kukui and produced a dojin single Yumewatari no Yoru, which was sold at the 67th Comic Market the same year. The following year they returned to provide the ending theme for Rozen Maiden’s second season, Träumend, and made their first major release as Kukui with the mini album Hikari no Rasenritsu. Their first album, Leer Lied was released in 2007.
