A powerful live force, KOYO create sonic spectacles through soaring layers of sound. They fill and transform space, create darkness and colour. Songs become extended improvisations, spontaneous expressions of emotion. KOYO are an unmatchable dynamic talent.
Blending influences as wide as Ozric Tentacles and The Velvet Underground, My Bloody Valentine and Kurt Vile, they give the impression of being able to play just about anything. KOYO combine beautiful melancholy vocals with intricate riffs and the poetry of Nick Drake. Sampling and synthesisers provide astral soundscapes, grounded by a gifted rhythm section. They are at once delicate and robust.
Debut single ‘Tetrachromat Pts. 1 & 2’ hypnotises and seduces, transports you to another level of consciousness. KOYO lure you heart first with their fearless emotional honesty. ‘Lost in the Kingdom’ fuses dreams and reality whilst searching for enlightenment. Their self-titled album ‘KOYO’ is available now through 88 Watt Records, ranked #24 in Classic Rock Magazine's best albums of 2017.
