Hiro Kone

Electronic artist Nicky Mao has been working under the name Hiro Kone since 2011. She released various EPs before unleashing last year’s debut album, ‘Love Is The Capital’.

In May she put out new EP ‘The Ghost Of George Bataille’, a collaboration with Coil’s Drew McDowall, and now she’s back again with ‘Pure Expenditure’, the title track from her new LP.

‘Pure Expenditure’ sees her team up with Japanese experimental trio Group A, who pull her further towards the harder edges of her own style. The results sound like the soundtrack to an industrial dystopia – nimble but nervous.

Listen to ‘Pure Expenditure’ here:
