The mics and amplification are all set up on the stage, and there's even a bass-uke player to give you that full-bodied sound if you'd like.

"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

"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
