Newish band from Exeter. Found them on myspace and they sent me both their EPs to date and they are fantastic! They have some serious talent.
Happy to upload EPs if anybody wants them...they're well worth it!
History... Formed in the summer of 2005 by three former schoolmates, Kolo have established a large nationwide fanbase through a combination of their intensive gigging and the distribution of their acclaimed debut release, the 'Normandy House EP', to over 4,000 music lovers across the country (for FREE!).
Drawing influences from a wide range of their favourite artists (from The Jam to the incredible Beverley Craven), Kolo manage to incorpate operatic vocals, snappy 2 minute pop songs, attempted murder ballads, spanish salsas and trekking inspired indie-rock within their live set.
"A power pop trio from Exeter, Kolo rattled through a fantastic set of overwrought tunage and won us over with their operatic 80s vocals, a tribute to Eurythmics and their twatting around with a synthesiser. A SYNTHESISER! Yes, they were very good indeed."

I dig them, a lot, different from a lot of the monotonous ****/indie I've been hearing recently.
