Bio

:: exotic robotic soul ::

MKO is unconcerned with following trends. MKO is a trend.

MKO is a solo artist. MKO is a band.

MKO balances old-school ideals that music should be deep, challenging, tuneful, soulful and syncopated; with an otherworldy, abstracted new-school spin.

MKO truly has the voice of an angel. MKO can sing like a Disney fairy, a Bollywood princess or an R&B diva… all with her own trademark originality.

MKO makes exotic, robotic soul.

MKO must be heard. Words are only words.

* * *

MKO are putting Brisbane on the map of urban electronic soul in the same vein as Quandron, Little Dragon, AlunaGeorge and James Blake.
MERCEDEZ BENZ MIXED TAPE

What would you say if I told you I knew of an act that combined the experimentation and freeness of the Dirty Projectors, the sultry moodiness of James Blake’s songwriting and beats and the beautiful vocal stylings of Erykah Badu?
DON’T NEED NO MELODY (USA)

What a blast of fresh air. Quirky arrangements dressed in inventive sounds, with lyrics that paint dreamscapes sung by the voice of an angel. More recordings like this please. In an ocean of blandness, my interest is piqued.
