Koji /  Singapore Singapore Groove Rock

Koji ; Origin

Formed in early 2014, Koji’s members have had experience performing with other bands in various shows for the past 4 years. However, the bands entered an indefinite hiatues, thus Asyraf, Nazrul and Farhan decided to start a new project, so as to be able to continue to play music and shows. They invited Arif to play bass and complete the band.

Koji takes electric infectious riffs and mix them up with a touch of soulful solos and groovy beats. With this being their take on heavy riffed rock music, Koji strives to bring their very best onto every show. With massive energies, they aim to rock. Hard.

Influenced by bands such as Rage Against The Machine, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Halestorm, Koji strives to create a seamless blend of heavy rock with soulful melodies.

Koji has released two recordings on their bandcamp on the February of 2014. Their self-recorded demo single, “Walk Away” was released on 7th February. They also released a cover they made of the classic, “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, originally by The Shirelles on 15th February, a day after Valentine’s.

Koji has since released their sophomore two track EP, titled "The Groove", on bandcamp, itunes and spotify. They released it, along with the music video for "The Groove" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2CgVuvCmJ60) on the 12th of September 2014, in conjunction with their show at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre for the Noise Singapore Music Festival.

They were selected and went through the Noise Music Mentorship programme under their mentor, Bani Haykal (B-Quartet) in 2014. They played the Noise Music Festival in September of 2014, at the Esplanade Outdoor Theatre. They have currently been announced to play Baybeats 2016 under the budding band mentorship programme, mentored by Bani Hidir.

Koji is in the process of recording their upcoming self-titled EP, slated to release at the before the end of June.

Koji is Asyraf, Nazrul, Arif and Farhan.

[The Fifth Parlour] Mrs. Mia Wallace – An Intro to local band, Koji

"With good guitar hooks, rifts, low bass and hard-hitting drums, the song got me addicted. I had to listened to it a few times. Mrs. Mia Wallace has the good hooks like Foo Fighters meet Halestorm (I know it doesn’t make sense but give it a listen), which started out slow but then once it hits the chorus, it got me wanting more." - Shah, The Fifth Parlour

[POWEROFPOP] KOJI PRESENTS RAW HARD ROCKIN’ TRIBUTE TO PULP FICTION

"If there’s one inescapable fly in the S-ROCK ointment, it’s the lack of meaningful lyricism, the fear of exploring concepts beyond the purely emotional (the ‘affairs of the heart’ cliche). Thankfully, that is not the case with Koji’s new free track – “Mrs Mia Wallace” – which functions as a tribute to the Pulp Fiction characters famously played by Uma Thurman in the Quentin Tarantino classic. There’s something wonderfully shambolic about the quartet’s hard rockin’ agenda – channeling Wolfmother via Led Zep – although the quality of the vocals might need sprucing up. But one cannot quibble too much with the infectious riffs that dominate “Mrs Mia Wallace” and that is one memorable take-away." - Kevin Matthews, powerofpop.com
