sonically referencing both the electronica of “resist” 🦌(their debut lp) and the creativity and darkness of “kokopelli” (their second)🎶, with “damage (2021 remaster)”🌾, kosheen created🎙🎚💻 a subtly futuristic soundtrack for the 21st century. lyrically, changes and struggles in both relationships and landscapes are recurring themes. life and beauty still flourish,
“damage” was their ‘biggest’ and most beautiful record to date and includes the tracks ‘overkill’ & ‘guilty” and “damage”.
kosheen’s second album “kokopelli”, continued the evolution of kosheen’s sound, an original hybrid informed by their diverse musical roots, their personal experiences from performing live across the world, and all elements of contemporary music, it brings together sian evans’ emotive vocals and traditional song writing techniques to darren decoder’s and markee substance’s dark electronica and guitar-driven riffs. “kokopelli” went gold, and included the chart hit “all in my head”.
after hugely influential, independent singles like ‘hide u’, ‘catch’ & ‘(slip & slide) suicide’, kosheen achieved massive club, critical & chart success. their much loved lp ‘resist’ presents yet more dimensions of kosheen, with sparkling electronic breakbeat, deep chilled drum ‘n’ bass torch songs and achingly beautiful downbeat melancholia allowing sian’s emotive voice full range. this is a killer debut.
remastered for 2021
