Introducing - Koi Child
The seven-piece we'd like you to meet.
You may have heard of a groovin' new band gaining prominence around the gig circuit lately. Koi Child are a seven-piece jazz-fusion project hailing from our own port town of Fremantle. Emerging from a collaboration between nu-jazz band Kashikoi and hip-hop trio Child's Play, they've been busy readying a single for your ears set to launch on Monday via Rolling Stone [update - this is now live, and it's an absolute killer - listen HERE].
Landing their second gig together opening for homegrown psych-rock outfit Tame Impala earlier in the year and co-headlining youth festival Norfolk Lanes last fortnight, Koi Child have gone from strength to strength. They're about to head into the studio over the summer to record with none other than local-turned-international legend Kevin Parker.
You can catch them playing the James Squire stage at the Beaufort street Festival next Saturday. For now, we'll leave you with tunes from their constituent part, Child's Play.
