The name KO KO has many meanings, but Ryan and Taylor Lawhon felt a real connection with it as the boat they had wanted to buy and live on permanently was named KO KO. Bundled with reverb, chant-alongs, and a striking songwriting ability, KO KO's debut three-track release Float EP captures a raw and emotional essence of indie rock developed in a new way. KO KO is the Southern California dream-pop collective consisting of brothers Ryan and Taylor Lawhon with various contributors ranging from Los Angeles to San Diego. In the land of perpetual sunshine, the music is created by friends with simple lives, writing songs who have never seen a real winter. KO KO's "Intermission" shows a more reserved side to the collective, boosting a single fragile voice with a dramatic build that leads us deeper into a world of complex textures and percussions. The ideal or inspiration behind KO KO was to only write and create music they felt an emotional connection with, and their debut EP release, Float, has a profound cohesiveness that might persuade you to feel the same way too.
