Bristol based trio KOKO, made an electrifying statement with their effervescent debut single ‘Freak’ last November, swiftly followed by recent single ‘Eyes So Wide’ – “A song about lust” says the band, “It’s when you lust after someone from the moment you meet them and you want to lose all of your inhibitions with that person.”

A world full of dark and dynamic electronic pop, KOKO make music awash with oceans of feeling, spiced with an indie, hip hop swagger. Oliver Garland (vocals) Harry Dobson (bass, synth) and Ashley C (synths, lead guitar) met, “a few years back at a mad house party in a University Halls flat in Bristol. We instantly clicked and began making music together shortly after. Here are our top ten tracks for any occasion, whether it’s those lazy mornings or those heavy drinking nights, we’ve got you covered!”

1. slowthai – ‘Drug Dealer’

“It’s a fucking bop.”

2. The Neighbourhood – ‘R.I.P 2 My Youth’

“A song that takes us back to when we first met. Their sound was an early influence on KOKO.”

3. Toploader – ‘Dancing In The Moonlight’

“The end of night tune, karaoke classic.”

4. Tame Impala – ‘Less You Know The Better’

“It’s just a banger!”

5. John Maus – ‘Hey Moon’

“When you reflect on the night before.”

6. TOTO – ‘Africa’

“The first time we ever danced at Dean St Studios (KOKO HQ – the place all our music is written).”

7. Fleetwood Mac – ‘The Chain’

“The only song with more energy than us.”

8. Billie Eilish – ‘Everything I Wanted’

“Beautiful song.”

9. ABBA – ‘The Winner Takes It All’

“Who doesn’t like ABBA? This was the last song that came on in a bar in Berlin recently. It went off!”
