KOKO x Nina Chuba x Dillistone
SINGLE + VIDEO
The Boys with the dark edged beats and shrill melancholy are back - and they teamed up with reinforcements.
Against the odds, KOKO released two EPs in 2020, building a reputation as raucous rascals with a soft side. With not a lot to do in terms of gigging, they spent their free time writing new music that will see the light of day in the not so distant future. One of the tracks KOKO worked on in the last months is already in waiting in the wings to blow your mind.
Before heading to their gig at Reeperbahn Festival in late summer last year, KOKO spent some fruitful time in Berlin, where they met German rising star Nina Chuba and producer Dillistone. The five of them spitballed song ideas for a few days, eventually coming up with "22s". The Band remembers: "We instantly clicked and built the story of the song about a failed relationship. We felt we'd all been in the same situation where everything we did seemed to be wrong. When you constantly find yourself in these scenarios, it's that feeling of 'damned if you do and damned if you don't', a catch-22."
KOKO's singer Ollie starts crooning over a deep beat, Nina joins in the chorus and lays down some unapologetic bars in her signature style. "22s is a track about being a walking disaster you just can’t leave alone. Your flaws are perfect in all their messed up glory and if that makes you a living catch-22, then find someone who doesn’t mind playing with fire," she and Dillistone say about the song.
"22s" is out everywhere on March 19th.
The music video will be out March 23rd, please do not post before that date.
