‘Kent Coast Folk with an African Twist’ – The Independent
‘Lively and incredibly infectious’ ... ‘Full of spiraling songs to be danced to in a field or enjoyed at home for their life and unassumingly poetic lyrics.’ – Maverick

Operating well beyond the remit of alt-folk, Cocos Lovers (pronounced Co-Coss) are a distinctive musical force, seamlessly channelling influences from Africa, the US Deep South and several other real and imagined corners of the globe, while staying ever faithful to their Kentish roots. Hailing from the small but musically rich town of Deal, they are a close-knit 7-piece band of family, friends and former au pairs. Their music swells with powerful choir-like harmonies and glorious widescreen melodies, and they’ve earned a reputation for fantastic live performances with an ever-changing instrumental line-up of mandolin, banjo, acoustic and electric guitars, harmonica, violin, musical saw, flute and a unique blend of drums and percussion.

Their debut album, Johannes, was conceived in 2008 when the newly-formed group quit their regular jobs and ventured out on an odyssey around Europe. They busked the streets of countless towns, worked on farms, stayed in squats and communes and wrote music inspired by their experiences. Johannes was released through the band’s own co-operative; Smugglers Records, in spring 2010, winning For Folk’s Sake’s album of the year poll and much critical acclaim:

Smugglers Records has gone on to release 15 records, put on hundreds of music nights across the Southeast and established its own sell-out Smugglers Festival in Kent. It was here, camping out in the festival’s absinthe bar amidst a ‘christmas tree forest’, where Cocos Lovers hid themselves away during the summer of 2012 to write their third album Gold or Dust; taking time off to build stages and compost loos ready for the festival. Once the summer was over the band began working with producer Joel Magill (Syd Arthur, Dawn Chorus Recording Company) and set about recording the new album at Wicker Studios, home of Kate Bushes early records. Gold or Dust explores the apocalyptic destiny of our existence and drifts through folk, world, classical and psychedelic influences.
