Keeping the night from ending: Lovable Devon family indie-folk band KoCapoli sing of better days ahead on ‘Sun Don’t Rise’

Devon/Brighton based indie-folk act KoCapoli are back with more beautiful melodies on their latest single ‘Sun Don’t Rise‘.

Twin sisters Alice, Kit and brother Billy, have been performing since they were youngsters and being in a band was always the plan. Their family has grown a bit bigger recently and they have brought in their friends Robin on drums and Ben on bass. With funk, folk, soul, and alternative sounds all woven into one, this is an outfit that make sweet music that leaves you wanting more treats to fill up your empty heart.

This is the story of wanting that special night to last just a bit more and longing for this to happen. You are with friends or lovers and don’t want it to end as everything is so perfect. This is that rare moment when the stars align just right and everything blends in your heart as you smile so bright and you don’t want the day to come, only the night.

The twin’s vocals are so pure and heartfelt and the mellow guitar adds a layer of sweetener to make this is a warm cuppa tea for the battered heart, tired of being locked inside and lonely. This is exactly what we need more of in the world; dreams and desires instead of gloom and doom that does nothing to help.

This is a lively band that has so much fun together and loves a good laugh and each other’s company while attempting to make Instagram videos. Their laughter is infectious (in a good way) and this type of happy energy is transported into their music.

South Devon/Brighton based KoCapoli miss each other a lot as they are separated due to current times but hopefully their bond has grown even stronger. ‘Sun Don’t Rise’ is a caring story of love and has been released like a caged bird, to bless us when we needed it most. Life is about being with those we care about most after all.

The sultry and classy voice emanates through your veins, and into your feelings right away. This is about a lover who tried for a while, but then they started to show their true colors. Growing tired of silly games was too much, and now there is nothing to save in this once strong love. Feeling like you were taken for grated for a while, the fire burnt out like an old candle, and now its laying on the floor in tatters. The time to heal and move on, is closer than you thought before.

Her vocals make the hairs stand up, the guitar rhythm is so perfect, and the production is done just right. Nothing seems over the top here, the song is so effortlessly performed, and you play this Lo-fi infused Indie R&B track again and again, there is so much to like here, and your mind wonders with all the beauty around.

The only way to recover is to take a deep breath, shake off the doubt, and open your heart up to love, and be loved again.

Jacquevall brings us reassuring R&B stunner ‘Not Alone, Pt. 2’

Jacquevall brings us reassuring R&B stunner ‘Not Alone, Pt. 2‘ and this is a slow jam to make you feel better.

Do you want to talk about it or not is the question. You love them so much but sometimes things happen and mistakes can happen. Moving on and taking that next step to grow is the key here. That is the only way to heal up and switch into the next step of love. When you are together, there is only laughter and good times. Things feel right.

“This song is about my love for my fiance and acknowledging the challenges we both face, but wanting her to be completely open with me. To be that one she can completely confide in. I would say the main message I want listeners to know is to understand that everyone makes mistakes, but I believe we don’t have the right to judge on whats right or wrong because we all grow in our own way and that’s the journey of life.”

Taken off the latest 6-track EP ‘Reminisce in Discovery‘, ‘Not Alone, Pt. 2‘, is all about that real love and taking charge of this relationship. Jacquevall is in fine form here and he sings with such heart and skill. This is a self-aware single from a man on a mission.

‘Fake Superman’ from Koreyography is a story of knowing what he really is

Fake Superman‘ from Koreyography is a fine house-beat of a story about knowing what he really is. He is fake and you are not.

The name Koreyography came to life due to his competitive dancing, tricks, and choreography, which would later transcend into other fields of entertainment. Before the name Koreyography was formed, Korey Witha K was massively into sports, music, and education. This is an artist that is truly multi-skilled and now is fully into music.

He comes into your life with bluster and wants to show off and for you to know how cool he is. He thinks that you don’t see through him and you are naive. Little does he know that you are much smarter than him and know his player style. You have seen it before and roll your eyes. You know the deal. This is not going to last and you don’t want any falseness in your life. You are real and want to be with someone who is the same.

Fake Superman‘ from Koreyography is a terrific house song that has a smooth beat that flies into your ears like a speeding car. The style is there and this is a top track for 2020. Knowing who is fake is so relevant in this wild world.
