For her debut single, alt-pop artist Koko Nova served a seductive slice of era-spanning European electro-pop that won’t fail to leave you arrested through the atmospheric post-punk elements amongst the 90s pop artfully anthemic grooves.
The sonic experience itself is enough to get you excited about Koko Nova. Yet, with a successful corporate career behind her and a background in science that feeds into the constructs of her sound, you don’t just get the sense that her music is intellectually inspired; you get the affirmation.
If you pay close enough attention to the lyrics, you’ll find that Addicted to You isn’t your usual saccharine love song; instead, it is a siren call to our habits that form around our vices. Something tells us that her sophomore single will be just as subversive.
Addicted to You released on April 23rd; you can check it out for yourselves by heading over to SoundCloud.
