HICARI, meaning 'light' in Japanese, are a multicultural band of friends who use their influences to create new, uplifting tracks that compel you to dance or speak to your heart

HICARI use their influences to create new uplifting tracks, synth-hooks and driving melodies to compel you to dance or speak to your heart.

Their sound is home to the influence of synth-pop artists such as CHRVCHES; The 1975; and St. Lucia, with everything 80s as the foundation. 光

2016 has seen HICARI achieve wider recognition with their debut single ‘Catch Fire’ and it’s remix surpassing over a quarter of a million hits. During the summer they played to the vast crowds of festivals such as LIMF, Rivers & Fusion. They were also asked to open for the Mancity VS Bucharest game at the Etihad Stadium.

To kick off 2017 with a bang their collaboration on one of Anki’s album tracks has surpassed half a million streams on Spotify. This year promises to bring UK wide concerts in aid of their single release, along with a stellar music video that celebrates a successful pledge campaign.
