kokomo @ dunkfestival 2016

Music can be heard, described, categorised and analysed in countless ways. Thodor W. Adorno for instance distinguished between popular and serious and by this gave music a difference in value which is still in use today. But no matter how one approaches music, it is for sure that music is socially produced as well as socially productive. And this the main concern behind Kokomo.
There is a scene for every kind of music and we secretly hope to have found our little spot. Since 2008 we have tried to bring our music to people and spread a little joy on concerts and tours with And So I Watch You From Afar, Caspian, Silver Mt. Zion, 65daysofstatic, Caspian, This Will Destroy You, Maybeshewill and many other bands between Edinburgh and Istanbul. If one would enumerate aims, this would be one of ours: To enjoy the music, pass this feeling to the audience and thereby have a good time ourselves.
Each of our by now three albums has been recorded by ourselves and we have put a lot of effort into getting the whole thing across with a lot of love and dedication. For example with self made packaging, our own designs or hand printed merchandise. We hope that we can set ourselves a little bit apart with the new album and on our upcoming concerts, but above all we want to let our music speak for itself. Because since Jaques Derrida we know that words are only sleeves and can change their meaning every day.
