KOAN SOUND DROPS EP ‘INTERVALS ABOVE’ AHEAD OF ‘IN PARALLEL’ TOUR
KOAN Sound are back with their new EP Intervals Above, just in time for their UK and North America tour alongside Haywyre. With the successful release of their debut album, Polychrome at the end of 2018 the group have gone on to amass over 70 million streams and 30 million views on YouTube. And let’s not forget a tour spanning North America, Europe and Australasia, 2019 is another big year for the guys.
Hailing from Bristol, UK, the production duo consisting of Will Weeks and Jim Bastow have evolved since their Funk Blaster EP on OWSLA days in 2011, where funk and bass fronted their production line which rightfully earned them a tour alongside Skrillex, Pretty Lights and Grimes. In their 2013 collaborative EP release Sanctuary the duo dabbled with orchestra creating a smooth, tight and distinguished record that has been echoed with a cinematic journey in Intervals Above.
Linking up with Haywyre, their American music peer, KOAN Sound will be heading on their UK and North America In Parallel tour. With Haywyre previously rendering the guys one of his biggest musical inspirations, this collaboration is what dreams are made of.
Kicking off in Glasgow on September 4th, the squad will head across the pond, starting in Portland, Oregon on September 12th. A full list of scheduled dates can be found below with more to be announced shortly.
