Losing your ambiguity, you silently but boastfully distinguish your delights with the listening of the progressively ample single ‘Ostracised’ by KOYO.
With pencil in hand, you draw you predicament of excitement and unintelligible frivolity, crushing the lead edge of the descriptive black lines. An unalterable discussion of feats and confounding revelry, deliver with beauty of poignancy.
KOYO return with a single that tints with their eagerly awaited second album (2020).
Hooked onto the remittently unintentional drive of ‘Ostracised’, deliver with 70’s prog rock grit. The immediate cut of sanity is brought forth, quickly and crystalized, with the chorus and guitar driven rock shimmer.
“We liked the idea of writing a song that manages to pull together both directions we’ve been going in, the wilder, more raucous side and the spacey, poppier side,” Huw Edwards stipulated. “It ended up being both one of the heaviest and catchiest songs we’ve ever written and kinda feels like our most “KOYO” song yet in that respect.
Never isolated and never demure about that fact, the band encourages sponge-like autonomy in seducing the news of the current day and their emotional impacts.
“We’re influenced by a lot of the modern psych stuff that’s going on… almost like a Deftones meets Tame Impala thing. I think ‘Ostracised’ was the brain child of that idea, but it was Tom’s wild, Bonham-esque drum groove that kicked it off.
Continued Huw: “I think a lot of the time that anxiety can simply exist within someone’s own head, but then spreads like a virus. I think people often kind of “ostracise” themselves, just from thinking they are, and it becomes like a vicious circle. For me, the best way of dealing with that is simply communication, and not dwelling on those insecurities but pushing forward.”
Sparkling in its own style and method, KOYO’s vibrant ecosystem of lyrics and delightful notes, culminate into this batter of sweetness that is of this world and of the unforeseen future.
A mighty solution of rhythmical gambles, accentuate with an effortless fervor.
KOYO is Huw Edwards (lead vocals, guitar), Jacob Price (sampling, synthesisers), Seb Knee-Wright (guitars), Dan Comlay (bass) and Tom Higham (drums).
See them next @ The Garibaldi Hotel, Northamton UK, December 30th.
