Calls aside – listen to the debut album of the band KOIKOI

Mr. Moonlee presents a beautiful debut album ‘Calls aside’ Belgrade indie-rock quartet KOIKOI, which came out on 04.06.2021. on Moonlee Records in CD and digital format. The vinyl release is planned for the fall.

With ‘Invitations to the Side’, KOIKOI will enchant us with a trans-genre combination of autochthonous musical tradition and contemporary western trends (world and ours!). Their debut album brings the most tempting form of a different pop, which is at the same time silky melodious and playfully noisy, radio sensitive and rocker violent, and always under the veil of hypnotic Balkan melody, an intertwining of ecstasy and nostalgia. The enchanting female-male polyphony with its inherent sex appeal will remind some of the British The XX, and others perhaps of regional folk practices. There are a lot of loose references – Serbian alt / art rock in the tradition of Darkwood Dub and Petrol, electro-rock a la Chromatics, indie rock in the spirit of DIIV, dream pop fantasies, contemporary global ethno psychedelia – but the most important thing is that ‘Calls aside ‘no doubt a region class for itself. The debut album KOIKOI is a pearl for everyone, who realized in time that advanced pop is new punk.

KOIKOI will soon start promoting their new album at concerts:

24.6.2021 @ Ljubljana – Gala Hala Summer Garden (AND)
25.6.2021 @ Zagreb – Močvara (HR)

More concert dates coming soon.
