Koi Child are a seven piece group from Fremantle who fuse nu-jazz and funk with modern hip-hop. In its humble beginnings, the project began after local Perth acts CHILDS PLAY and KASHIKOI played a once off live improvised jam session. They went on to support Tame Impala at Rottnest Island in their second live outing and have since worked with Kevin Parker to produce this, their first official single. ‘Slow One’ is nothing if not engrossing and texturally rich; a pop structure is followed loosely as improvised keys provide context and colour whilst the unabashed vocals progress the feel into something on the verge of organised chaos. Reminiscent of early Hiatus Kayote material with shades of Kirkis – Koi Child have produced something brilliant with this one.
Koi Child plan to release their debut album sometime in the first half of 2015.
