— Alt Dialogue
Intricate, artful guitar music
— God Is In The TV Zine
Infused with the spirit of bands like Young Marble Giants, The Raincoats and The Delta 5.

PRESS

"Really quite insistent" - Steve Lamacq
"Tight, sparse post-punk.. KONE [sound like] like they’ve stumbled through a fog of cigarette smoke from a studio where they’ve just recorded a Peel session sometime around 1980" - Nightshift Magazine

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
