Polar Wander by KOKO









Singer/songwriter and bassist Costanza Delle Rose is also a member of the Italian post punk act Be Forest. The artist presents her new solo side project Koko with the first single Polar Wander, part of the forthcoming debut album Shedding Skin.

Polar Wonder is a synth-based tuneful dreampop track, nostalgic and driving at the same time.

The artist comments: "I wrote Polar Wander in a particular period of my life, when changing and growing was happening. I was moving into a new house, a new life was waiting for me there, this scared me even though I knew it was the right thing to do. When I’m scared, when things accumulate, when thoughts and feelings overlap, the only way I know to feel better is playing and throwing them out. Polar Wander is an ode to change, to those moments when you have to restart from the beginning, when you know what you’re losing but you don’t know what you are going to find. It is about life, about feeling alive."

Shedding Skin comes out on October 17th 2021 via We Were Never Being Boring Collective.
