Koban is a storm that has been gathering over the Pacific Northwest since 2011. After an EP and full length recording behind them, the Vancouver-based duo is striking out again with this six-song EP. Koban naturally and seamlessly genre-bend, their punk roots buried deep under layers of melded synth, goth, and post-punk. This creates a unique sound which is simultaneously full and sparse, atmospheric and uneasy. A drum machine creates a baseline over which moody interchanging vocals and blown-out guitar noise quickly and organically oscillates. Their lyrics nod to their influences and are sung in French for an icy touch.
