Grindcore and weeping rockstars: Meet Koyo

Nu proggers with an eye on Led Zep, it was hearing Bowie cry that showed them the way

While studying Music Production at Leeds University, Koyo’s Jacob Price got a master class with veteran engineer/Bowie producer Ken Scott, who let him in on a little rock’n’roll history. “Ken played us the stems of Hunky Dory and Ziggy Stardust,” says the keyboardist/programmer. “By the end of Five Years, Bowie is just crying. It’s a proper performance that feels like a one-off take. And it’s that kind of thinking we’ve tried to bring to our band.”
