Oliver Garland (vocals) Harry Dobson (bass, synth) and Ashley C (synths, lead guitar) met at a party in Bristol in 2017. A musical meeting of minds led the trio to form KOKO and 2020 sees them release their second single, Eyes So Wide.
With a bassline that’s as sensual as the lead vocals; you just know from the opening notes you’re on to something special, and sexy, with Eyes So Wide. A celebration of instant attraction, the song captures perfectly that moment where time seems to stand still, even as your heart and mind races. It’s the perfect tune for getting to know someone very intimately at the end – or start – of a long and sweaty night.
“Eyes So Wide is a song about lust” explains 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.”
Eyes So Wide is available to stream or download on all major platforms including Spotify. Be sure to check the band out over on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter and maybe throw them a follow to keep up with news about the song, upcoming releases, and gigs. The trio plays a sold-out gig The Waiting Room in London on the 22nd of January.
