Koi Child - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Koi Child
Koi Child is a seven-piece hip-hop group based in Fremantle, Australia. Birthed in 2014 from the collaboration of two local bands, Kashikoi and Child’s Play, their electronic hip-hop and prog/jazz-rock fused to create something unique, establishing them as one of the most impressive emerging acts in Australia. A chance witness to the band’s first performance, Kevin Parker of Tame Impala offered the band to open for and mixed their debut LP, recorded on a small island shack south of Perth.

The album’s thunderous second single ‘Black Panda’ has made waves, receiving high rotation on triple j and Apple Music’s Beats 1 with Ebro Darden, heavy US college radio play including KCRW, and has reached 2015’s most-played lists across Australian community radio. Online, the track received apt praise across notable sites such as Earmilk, The Fader and Noisey, whilst their first single ‘Slow One’ received big love from Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1, who formally branded the group “Future Radio 1 Artists”. The band also featured in Spotify’s ‘Spotlight on 2016 Australia & New Zealand’, and won ‘Most Popular New Act’ at the 2015 WA Music Awards.

In March 2016, the band released their ARIA nominated self-titled debut LP via Warner Music to critical acclaim, including single ‘1-5-9’ which debuted on Pitchfork. The group has since sold out headline tours across Australia, supported Tame Impala on their ‘Currents’ tour and have supported the likes of Hiatus Kaiyote, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Bloc Party, Young Fathers and more.

The group will embark on their first tour of the US in March for SXSW as well as a string of headline dates across Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia and more to be announced!
