Kosoti Short Info

After a near death experience in 2013, lead singer and songwriter Allan Hyslop realised he
needed to treasure every moment of his life by doing what he loved most, writing and performing music.
Once the band had formed they travelled a long way very quickly. After only six months they released ‘War’ and ‘Pirouettes’, a double ‘A’ sided digital single and video, before releasing the beautiful ‘Cradle’ EP, with its lush, homemade video complimenting the feeling of the title track perfectly. Both releases brought Kosoti critical acclaim and word spread, ensuring the band performed their debut show at Sage Gateshead Hall Two to a sell out audience.
Having already performed sessions for BBC Introducing, Amazing Radio and Metro Radio in their short career, their new single ‘Bark and Sticks’ is out now and is capturing the hearts of fans and media outlets alike. ‘Bark and Sticks’ boasts the beautiful vocal harmonies that are quickly becoming Kosoti’s trademark, with an infectious up-tempo melody that will no doubt draw comparisons to The Magic Numbers and Damien Rice.
The future is definitely bright for -kosoti- as they constantly drive forward, not stopping until everyone has heard their music and is smitten.
With more and more live shows to be announced we bring you… -kosoti-, enjoy!
