Premiere: Koiya – Tripped


New band alert! London-based electronic trio Koiya — brothers Dru (keyboards, guitar) and Kumar Grant (electronics, percussion), and Emma Wilson (vocals) — are rising from the underground and turning heads.

Brandishing a sound encompassing elements of downtempo, soul and digifunk, the threesome, who formed in 2016, will present their self-titled debut EP via Crunch Recordings on May 5.

Fresh from releasing “Brood,” we’re pleased to world premiere the absolutely mesmerizing synth-driven cut “Tripped” off their upcoming release.

“‘Tripped’ was one of the first tracks we wrote together as a group,” says vocalist Emma Wilson. “It’s a track that went through various shapes and forms before settling into the moody beast it is today. We often find that creatively we are drawn to beauty, sometimes shrouded in darkness and ‘Tripped’ depicts this wholeheartedly. Lyrically touching on the concept of life cycles and the beauty within death, which is so often the start of something new. We hope you like. Enjoy.”
