Bristol trio KOKO — aka Oliver Garland (vocals) Harry Dobson (bass, synth) and Ashley C (synths, lead guitar) — first met in their hometown just a couple of years ago, but they're already set to drop their darkly brooding debut single "Freak". A glowering piece of electronic pop, "Freak" pulses and throbs with all the intense energy of a packed out nightclub, sweat dripping from the ceiling. Besides being a surefire way to get a crowd moving, it also carries a defiant message of individuality. "It's a FU to the man!" they explain. "We're telling you to be whoever, or whatever, you want. Embrace individuality."
Tune in below before the track's official release tomorrow, November 15, and then catch them live at London's The Waiting Room on January 22.
