KYU is the name of three artists represented on Last.fm
1) kyü is an experimental pop outfit from Sydney, featuring duo Freya Berkhout and Alyx Dennison. Sounds like a tea party with Beethoven, Bowie, Björk and a Banshee. Their track 'Sunny In Splodges' was featured on New Weird Australia Volume One.
2) KYU is also a mathmetal band from Arnhem, The Netherlands. KYU is derived from ‘kyu’ , which is the Japanese word for grade/level/step, mainly used in the grading system of tradional Japanese fighting arts. It implies progression. KYU was founded in 2004 in the city of Arnhem, Holland, as four frustration-driven musicians united in their goal to provide their angry and disappointed views on, and experiences with, modern society with a fitting soundtrack. Pretty soon they connected and the sickness started coming out…
KYU’s musical style is mostly described as mathmetal since it has elements of mathcore, death metal and hardcore in it, all drenched in plenty of groove. Their music is driven by disappointment, rage, hate and frustration, blended together by a healthy dose of violence. More plainly put: their music will rip the flesh from your bones.
3) kyu is an alias of Nhato/Fukumuro Tatsuya who is a Japanese DJ, producer and remixer who makes techno and tech trance.
