Biography

österreich (sometimes written Österreich, written as "オストライヒ" in Japanese) was the solo project of former the cabs guitarist Kunimitsu Takahashi (高橋國光).

österreich was ultimately conceived in the aftermath of the dissolution of the cabs in late 2013. The band's dissolution, which came as a result of Takahashi's "laziness" and mental health issues, ultimately became the catalyst that allowed for Takahashi to break out on his own.

Kunimitsu's first official release came in the form of the song "P.S. I love you momo," which appeared on the Zankyo Records Compilation Vol.3 in 2012. An instrumental and near-orchestral piece, "momo" was fairly well received along with the rest of the album.

"Munō," his first and only single as well as the second season opening theme to Tokyo Ghoul, features Ai Kamano of the alternative rock band ハイスイノナサ (haisuinonasa), and was released March 4th. It features two other songs, both of which are studio versions of demos uploaded to the artist's Soundcloud late last year.
Kunimitsu announced österreich would only be releasing the track 無能 ("Incompetence") which featured in the anime series Tokyo Ghoul √A before ending all musical activities. However, Kunimitsu has been releasing demos and finished tracks onto his Soundcloud account, including the track "ひびのあわ" (Hibi no Awa) featuring Ai Kamano.
