More Info:

Brothers Hom Yu and Jiun Chi returned to Taipei in 2017 after finishing their studies. Since then they began to explore their mutual obsession for Taiwanese occult-inspired art and vintage superstitious imagery, channeling it through music. Mong Tong means many things in Chinese, but the translation they choose to fit their music is "the east-side of dreams". On "Mystery" these inspirations combine with the dark humour of Taiwanese folklore and a love of conspiracy theories to form what they describe as "a psychedelic journey to the east." Recorded in their home studio in Taipei, "Mystery" is a psychedelic journey into Taiwanese folklore combined with the 80's media obsession with the supernatural. It's a record that manages to combine nostalgia and tradition with humour and an underlying intrinsic earthiness to create something unlike anything else out there.
