Kokomo • '𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒆𝒎 𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒕𝒉' [Album Announcement + Song Première]
Hold your horses! Kokomo has a new album ‘𝑻𝒐𝒕𝒆𝒎 𝒀𝒐𝒖𝒕𝒉‘ and it is due November 15th!
Three years after the well-acclaimed 2016 album ‘𝐌𝐨𝐧𝐨𝐜𝐡𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐍𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐞 𝐋𝐨𝐯𝐞‘ Kokomo is back and the music is going to be wild, dark and determined. Check out the first song ‘𝐻𝑜𝑙𝑑 𝑀𝑒 𝐶𝑙𝑜𝑠𝑒𝑟, 𝑈𝑛𝑘𝑛𝑜𝑤𝑛 𝐷𝑎𝑛𝑐𝑒𝑟‘!
“Hold Me Closer, Unknown Dancer” might be the most massive song of the album and therefore repesents the direction in which our sound developed. We went further away from the beautiful, almost happy seeming melodies and turned to more pressure and more force. That pretty much reflects our current mood: less pathos, more anger!
“Kokomo have been an establish force on the post-rock scene for a number of years now and have always embraced heavier elements, but with their newest release Totem Youth the band have composed their most intense record to date, a grave reflection of the world that faces us when we gaze out the window.
Totem Youth is the product of musicians coming together to compose the music that most honestly reflects their feelings in the moment, with no pre-determined design going in. The result is weighty and dark, looming and uncompromising. But there is also residue of hope, echoes of light beyond the darkness.”
