A chance encounter in Barcelona, Spain brought us together to make this record happen. It’s a precious little marvel of love from Kou Keri Kou and Electric Cowbell Records. The band started with the aim of making music to dance to, taking inspiration from all over the world with no fear: the music from Cuba, Perú, Jamaica, Congo and Nigeria is as important for Kou Keri Kou as the music played in Europe or in the United States. Los Zafiros, Gary Numan, Los Destellos, Radio Futura, Sunny Ade and Kiko Veneno share place in their imagination and help them create openminded pop that always looks to the future. Their lyrics are sometimes open, sometimes a bit more cryptic, sometimes political and sometimes biting, but always try to communicate with the listeners while trying to make them dance.
