Coming off the back of a sold-out national tour and shows supporting Australian icons Tame Impala after the release of only two singles, Fremantle seven-piece KOI CHILD will return to the east coast in February/March (including performances at Golden Plains and Party in the Paddock) to promote the release of their debut album on Pilerats/Warner Music Australia! After forming in 2014, the band have already have earned national and international airplay on stations such as triple j and BBC Radio 1 for their beat-driven alternative hip-hop sounds. Koi Child’s brassladen smooth debut single ‘Slow One’ earned comparisons with Philadelphia legends The Roots from Rolling Stone Magazine with their second single ‘Black Panda’ landing them a deal with Pilerats Records/Warner Music Australia. Mixed and recorded by none other than Kevin Parker of Tame Impala after being present for their first ever live show, the eagerly anticipated upcoming debut album is due for release in February. As comfortable on stage with NY rap punks Ratking as they would be with modern soul stars like D’Angelo, combine that with the magic aural touch of Parker, and you’ve got something worth paying attention too. Koi Child are one of the most promising up-and-coming collectives in Australian music.
