Hamburg based multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter KUOKO returns with a brand new track ‘Take It Slow’, lifted from her upcoming album due for release later this year through cult German label Kabul Fire Records.
Following on from recent singles ‘Loser’, ‘All I Want’ and ‘Firework’, ‘Take It Slow’ continues Kuoko’s musical evolution, melding emotionally charged electronic melodies and wry, introspective lyricsim, exuding both vulnerability and empowerment. She says: “As a songwriter, producer and visual artist, I am well aware of the self-exploiting tendencies of our fast-living society. With ‘TAKE IT SLOW’ I try to reflect on the need to take a break. Wee need to remind ourselves to take things slow, I wanted to portray a dreamy synth landscape, that counters the upcoming winter days with a bit of sun and warmth.”
As a DIY artist who not only produces her own music, but is also deeply involved in the visual world around it, this is a topic close to KUOKO’s heart. Her laidback vocal approach to the catchy chorus effectively centres this message around joy and fun.
