These indie darlings share a mutual love of fusing genres - KOKO puts out eerie pop bangers as well as soft, sad songs.

KOKO return to the infectious grooves found on their debut EP with upcoming single "All Together Now," out 28th August via Made Records. A bold, thumping beat lays the foundation for a message about staying positive, and keeping a focus on forward progress.

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 short his promising career in extreme sports. Ashley C was forced to take a different approach in his teens, locking himself away for months on end whilst battling severe anxiety. These indie darlings share a mutual love of fusing genres - KOKO puts out eerie pop bangers as well as soft, sad songs. "All Together Now" mixes a flashy sense of confidence with lo-fi industrial grooves, and delivers another enigmatic hook-fest from this Bristol-based trio.
