PRESS

Wonderfully moody. BBC Introducing

“Recalls swamp rock, punk funk and The Fall as well as indie innovators of different eras, Salad and Prinzhorn Dance School.” Nightshift Magazine (Jan 16)

Sparse, downbeat, monochrome post-punk pop from Kone, who, with this debut single [No Colour World], sounded like they’d stumbled through a fog of cigarette smoke from a studio where they’d just recorded a Peel session sometime around 1980, all set to head off on tour with The Passions or Young Marble Giants, heroically oblivious to the last three decades. Perfect shadowy music for dark autumnal evenings under an uncaring Tory government. Nightshift Top 25 of 2015

Kone spangle and somnambulate through almost conversational songs, all loose, meandering grooves and minimalist, staccato guitar chimes equally sweet and austere. Nightshift Live Review
