"So Strange" - the second potential single off KO KO's shockingly good debut EP - awakens to the sound of elegiac organs that fill your mind with reveries of lazy afternoons and hazy filters. As a blanket of stained-glass falsetto and swirling acoustics wrap around you after the chorus, the clap-heavy drum spine keeps it upright and fuels the sentiment. Even the pianos flutter through like birds of paradise with an unquenchable thirst for everlasting companionship. It's almost as if Adam Levine's younger brother fronted Youth Lagoon and was lactose intolerant to cheesy radio pop. Get familiar with KO KO tonight at Popshop West, as they make their LA debut at the Echoplex. Free entry. 8pm. RSVP@neongoldrecords.com.
