Koko Beware are a married couple who enjoy the simple things in life – particularly when that comes to music. They release their debut album Something About The Summer in August and it is packed full of summery guitar pop that throws caution to the wind and just concentrates on one thing – having a good time.
Influences are joyfully celebrated from the surf guitar of Dick Dale to the beach harmonies of the Beach Boys and the garage punk punch of the Black Lips. The jangly guitars deliver catchy hooks galore, joyfully utilise a bit of call and response in the vocals, and back it all up with lots of reverb.
Best of all, they effortlessly conjure up images of nights spent cruising the beachfront in a 1950s Chevy.
