Alternative rock band tricot was formed in September 2010 by Ikkyu, Motifour and hirohiro. The women were joined by drummer komaki in May 2011, and a few months later, released their debut mini-album via their own label, BAKURETSU RECORDS. Like many alternative acts, tricot are reluctant to embrace a specific genre label, like “math rock” or “post-rock”. However, the trio do acknowledge some similarities between said genres and their style.

tricot were once more reduced to a trio in March 2014, but this has had little impact on the band’s activities. The Kyotoites have kept up a steady stream of releases and a busy touring schedule, including several forays overseas to Asia, Europe and, in 2015, North America. They became a quartet again in 2017.
