Kokoroko really burrow deep, we played their self-titled EP to death, their African polyrhythmic jazz just gets inside your soul, nourishes with it's soft mellow funk, sharply breezing satisfying horns that are almost latin, guitars with that good-living jazz fusion sound and keys reaching for Herbie Hancock levels of space grooves. A real magic record this is set to be.
For those who dig: Kamaal Williams, Emma-Jean Thackray, Joe Armon Jones, Nubiya Garcia, Yazmin Lacey, Alfa Mist...
We have a limited amount of 12"x12" Album Sleeve Design hand-numbered prints available with each copy sold.
The long awaited debut LP from Kokoroko - Could We Be More 5th August 2022
“Drawing influence from West African highlife and jazz, wellmarinated in enough polyrhythm seasoning to induce fires on the dance floors they play.” Okay Africa
“Afrobeat, jazz, soul and ’70s psych-leaning funk - luminescent” Cool Hunting
“This female-led, multicultural collective of under 30s is a vital example of not only jazz’s new form but the shape of things to come.” The Guardian
Following the huge success of 2018’s Kokoroko EP’ and the sensational Abusey Junction (100M streams and counting), Could We Be More’ is an expansive and ambitious debut album that speaks to the force of Kokoroko.
Each song possesses the power to evoke memories and harness the feeling of home through music: from the psychedelic, funk-laden previous single ‘Something’s Going On’ to the congregational energy of today’s track ‘We Give Thanks’, ‘Could We Be More’ fuses together the African- London synergy which so naturally underpins the heat of Kokoroko’s identity.
