Koi Child w/ Godriguez & Body Type
The breezy port of Fremantle, WA has a reputation for birthing some of the world's best alternative music and early 2015 saw the birth of seven piece hip-hop/jazz seven piece KOI CHILD.
After a whirlwind past year of sold out national tours, supporting acts such as Tame Impala, Fat Freddy's Drop and Hiatus Kaiyote as well as festival performances across the country off the back of their debut self titled record and a subsequent ARIA nomination for Best Urban Album, KOI CHILD return to Sydney for a special headline performance at The Hudson Ballroom.
Following extensive global praise and airplay for their debut record and singles such as '1-5-9' and 'Black Panda' (Triple J in Australia, BBC Radio 1 in UK, Beats Radio 1 on Apple Music) backed by their high energy live show, this will be the last chance to catch Koi Child in Sydney before they embark on the national St. Jerome's Laneway Festival in January/February.
Koi Child's main support is Sydney producer Godriguez (Sampa the Great), performing live with his full band, as well as alt/pop four-piece Body Type.
"[Tame Impala's] fastidious production allows their formidable musicianship free reign as tenor and alto sax solos vie for space with tinkling, feather-light keys, expansive double bass and punchy compressed drums" - Mojo
"Koi Child is an inviting first step that begs to be heard live in the smallest, smokiest club possible" - Rolling Stone
"For those who love hip-hop and want to support its local incarnation, but find they grate on the teeth - consider Koi Child the antidote. Koi Child will be next summer's festival must-see, so you may as well get on the train now" - Elle
