KOKO ANNOUNCE DEBUT EP ‘FOLLOW’
RELEASED 13TH MARCH
TITLE TRACK RELEASED TODAY
Bristol based electronic trio KOKO continue their astronomical rise with the announcement of their debut EP ‘Follow’ – out 13th March. They’ve revealed a taste of what’s to come with the release of the title track today.
In the 3 months since the world was introduced to KOKO, the trio have already gained an impressive tastemaker audience. Championed by the likes of Complex and Dummy, they’ve amassed hundreds of thousands of streams across their first two singles ‘Freak’ and ‘Eyes So Wise’. Now, following their sold-out show at the Waiting Room, London, their first live performance as a band, they’re set to continue their ongoing streak of success with their debut EP ‘Follow’.
‘Follow’ is yet another example of how KOKO continue to make music that’s hard to label. Full of impossibly tangible textures, it’s a dark and dynamic soundscape that continues to shift before you have the chance to get comfortable.
The band said: “‘Follow’ is quite a direct song in it’s meaning! It’s all about bad influences…the lyrics say it all”
The band have also announced a return to London for their second live performance, they will play the Camden Assembly on April 7th.
Oliver Garland (vocals) Harry Dobson (bass, synth) and Ashley C (synths, lead guitar) met at a party in Bristol in 2017. All members had dabbled with music previously but came together that night over a mutual love of fusing genres. After realising that they were all on the same page, the trio set about jamming together in that hallowed place of every good indie band origin story; Oliver’s dad’s garage.
“Sometimes you’re up, sometimes you’re down. With every track, we always try to imagine hearing it at 4am in a field with a load of people. We want to take over the world, basically.” they say.
KOKO’s debut EP ‘Follow’ will be released on 13th March.
The band will play at London’s Camden Assembly on 7th April.
