KOYO’s latest single What is Mine may start tentatively, yet the progressive nature of the track means that you’re treated to a whole smorgasbord of aural delights. The extended duration of the track ensures that there’s plenty of time to seamlessly weave through soundscapes which are founded upon melodic elements of Shoegaze, Folk, Psychedelia and Alt Rock. The male and female vocals share a perfect amount of synergy as they verse the simple, yet poignant lyrics to What is Mine; which is just one of the standout singles from KOYO’s 2017 self-titled album.
What is Mine is one of those rare gems that you’ll stumble across from time to time which will remind you what prodigal music sounds like. It really is no wonder that the album received such critical acclaim back in 2017. Since then KOYO have released the sublimely Post Punk hit ‘Jettisoned’; I can only hope that they’ve got an album in the making for 2018.
