With the release of “Chilli Daddy,” KOAN Sound offers a taste of their forthcoming album, Polychrome. The funk-charged single features a storm of pop-and-slap-style bass riffs, organic drums, and ethereal progressions, abruptly transforming into the melodic, glitchy bass music for which the duo is known. Possessing an array of vibes ranging from chill to energetic drum and bass, “Chilli Daddy” is a journey in its own right and is sure to build anticipation for what’s next.
Bristol’s Will Weeks and Jim Bastow, known to many as KOAN Sound, have come a long way over the last decade. Weeks and Bastow have witnessed the evolution of their signature sound, releases via Inspected, OWSLA, Shoshin and more, and the accumulation of millions of multi-platform streams. Aside from being their first release since 2015, Polychrome is the artists’ first full-length album. With a special hometown show in Bristol at the famed Trinity on Saturday, February 16, KOAN Sound sets the stage for a 2019 live global takeover.
