Formed in Leeds in 2015, KOYO have fast become a major force in the city‘s thriving alternative scene. A powerful live act, the band create sonic spectacles through soaring layers of sound. This electric show has blown away audiences at Reading & Leeds, Download, Ramblin‘ Man, Live At Leeds and Camden Rocks Festivals. Their eponymous debut album received rave reviews in Q, Classic Rock, Planet Rock and Prog Magazines upon release in 2017. Relationship breakdown and loss are themes that thread their way through this album, as is an overall sense of coming-of-age. From the straight-up no nonsense statement of intent of album opener ‘Same Mistake Twice‘, to the triumphant driving rock of ‘Surrounded‘ - which deals with the theme of needing to get away after a breakup - to the claustrophobic ‘Out of Control‘. According to the band, the various faces in the album artwork, "represent the many facets of someone‘s personality; the underlying layers beneath the visible surface that can become disorientating and untrustworthy," as explored on ‘Circles‘ and ‘Ostracised‘.
