London based outfit Bokito unleash alternative anthem ‘OKOK’ into the wild
Blending indie with an alternative pop twist, ‘OKOK’ is Bokito’s latest release. Drawing inspiration from a diverse range of artists, the outfit take influence from the likes of J Dilla, Jeff Buckley, Justin Timberlake and Queens of the Stone Age to name a few.
Proving they’re one of those bands you find with true charisma, the infectious collective are clearly stating they’re ones to keep a close eye on.
“OKOK is about pushing people away who don’t give you exactly what you want and subsequently losing them. Be it friendships, partnerships, even family, we all have a history of doing it.
Ben Jackson produced the track and did an amazing job capturing the fragility and insecurity in it. For me, this is the type of song I want to make.” – Moses Moorhouse (Bokito Frontman)
Showcasing a darker message behind the track’s lighter feel, the instrumentation uses contagious rhythms to state the hardship of being pushed away. Just over halfway, the track takes a turn to repetitive mantra like vocals. Using vocals to create a new pulse within the single, ‘okok’ may have different faces, but it highlights itself mainly as a big step forwards in the band’s career.
A stunning range of imagery to come with the track, the whole arrangement of the tune feels like the lovechild of Alt-J and Radiohead. Featuring one of the best productions you’ll hear this week, stick it on your playlist!
