Formed in Leeds in 2015, KOYO have fast become a major factor in the city’s burgeoning music scene. Tagged with the prog rock label, they are in fact proficient, reflective and utterly self-effacing. True, some of their songs are longer and they are well schooled in music – literally. But KOYO wear their versatility and charm very lightly indeed.
 
Formed by Huw Edwards and Jacob Price, KOYO are an accomplished five-piece. Blending influences as wide as Ozric Tentacles and The Velvet Underground, My Bloody Valentine and Kurt Vile, they give the impression of being able to play just about anything. KOYO combine beautiful melancholy vocals with intricate riffs and the poetry of Nick Drake. Sampling and synthesisers provide astral soundscapes, grounded by a gifted rhythm section. They are at once delicate and robust.
 
A powerful live force, KOYO create sonic spectacles through soaring layers of sound. They fill and transform space, create darkness and colour. Songs become extended improvisations, spontaneous expressions of emotion. KOYO are an unmatchable dynamic talent.
 
Their self-titled album ‘KOYO’ is available now through 88 Watt Records, met with widespread critical acclaim including 24th best album of the year in Classic Rock Magazine. 
 
An explosive live phenomenon, their gritty take on psychedelia has a character, an identity all of its own." CLASH
 
“Every once in a while something gets passed in your direction that changes the course of everything. KOYO is that something” 10/10 God is in the TV
