Bristol three piece KOKO have revealed a brand new song, and a first taste of their upcoming EP with the groove-laden All Together Now. The song is an overwhelmingly positive message, coming at a time when we’ve all been apart for so long.
The band said: “The track’s about keeping it together no matter what life throws at you. Everyone has that thing they do to get by – whether it’s screaming into a pillow, going to the gym, punching stuff. That thing that keeps you sane”
Ollie, Harry D and Ashley C met at a party in Bristol in 2017. Ollie, who had grown up in Thailand, was on the path to becoming a professional bare-knuckle boxer. Harry D had picked up a skateboarding sponsorship before an injury cut his extreme sports career short. Ashley C was forced to take a different approach in his teens, locking himself away for months on end whilst battling severe anxiety.
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, and the resulting sound is what you hear today. We can’t wait to hear the new EP, which is set for release later this year.
