Friday 23rd June 2017 - KOLO - at The Sun Inn

8.45
"Fresh, upbeat, and poetic, with vocals to inspire a sing along. Kolo deliver in a way that both makes you smile, and emotionally relate." - Chemical Magazine
"Kolo are one of the most exciting bands to have come out of the South West in a long time. Having seen them live in the UK and the States, I can tell you its a wholehearted excellent show full of great music. They really deserve success." - Vic Morgan, BBC

"Musically and lyrically, they stand out. The songs, prickly yet anthemic, demonstrate a keen ear for tune as well as experimentation. There are electronic, 1980s-informed flourishes and even the odd operatic vocal..." - Graeme Demianyk, Western Morning News

"After a cooling off, the burning sensation that is Kolo is back hotter than ever and with a smoking new line-up. With explosive lyrics, fiery vocals and scorching guitar riffs, this is what makes Kolo the band for 2012 and beyond." - Phonic FM
