COMPLEX Magazine described ‘IOA (Part One) ‘ the best, calling it “a much-needed antidote to the bleakness all around us right now.” Created by multi-instrumentalist Koloto, the track was premiered via COMPLEX Magazine and released alongside its album IOA via Interstellar Music Ltd today. Koloto tells us:
“When writing music I tend to get stuck in a cycle of creating multiple Incarnations of an Idea. I often reach a point where I can’t decide which to use, and as a result nothing gets used. IOA is a rebellion against this particular artistic struggle. It’s a series of ideas created from the same basic chord progression, It could be viewed as 3 movements or as standalone tracks. On a personal level it’s really liberating to release something that’s “unfinished” and serves as a reminder to myself not to confuse musical norms with constraints.”
Prepare your ears for the cheerful, comforting sounds of cascading electronic embellishments that run rife throughout the album. The self-taught musician has pursued individual experimentation and composition, creating a signature style that should be regarded as unmissable.
