Kioko are back with a brand-new single!
With the single ‘Lights Out’ being released on Valentine’s Day I guess you would expect the track to be about love and you’d be right to think that but it’s not the usual love song you’d expect to hear.
On first listen, new single is a typical sounding Kioko track; relatable lyrics with that reggae/ska feel and the Kioko sound we all love to hear. The chorus will no doubt have you singing along – a basic guarantee that it will be a success live with a crowd’s backing. It’s a quality song that you can tell has been put together with a great deal of care and attention to detail. There is no doubt that this track will fit perfectly into their already impressive set list.
Although the song is about a breakup it has the upbeat sound to it which you can’t help but love and along with its catchy lyrics, I have no doubt it will have you singing along. I’m not usually a fan of songs about love and break ups but there is something about this band and how they make music that I can’t help but love.
This is arguably my most favourite release from Kioko to date!
A nice treat for the ears, a band to keep an eye out for and if you haven’t seen them live yet you should check them out, you’re missing out on a great gig trust me.
