Ko is the pseudonym of Kristin Newborn: vocalist, guitarist, and downright badass. From the age of 18, Kristin was classically trained by a religious cult show choir. No foolin'. But as fucked up as that experience must have been, Kristin emerged victorious. A native of Indianapolis by way of Los Angeles, Kristin first began writing under the name Ko in the spring of 2012, after the demise of her first group Slothpop. Shortly thereafter she enlisted Todd Heaton to play percussion for the live shows and later recordings.

We are very pleased to introduce you to their first recorded material. Ko's debut EP contains 4 songs of intricate vocal looping, heartfelt purpose, and plenty of Danelectro wall-of-sound-fuzz to boot.

The EP is available on bronze-inside-clear 7", limited to 350 hand-numbered copies, and white vinyl 7" (which may or may not be pressed into infinity). Purchase includes digital download in high quality MP3 + WAV.  You can stream the thing on digital platforms, Spotify can be found here.
