Do you want to rule the world?


“I don’t do many shout outs but these guys deserve it! If you want to be turned on to a great Band and a great bunch of guys with a FANTASTIC sound then go follow @koloband. I can’t say enough about the music these guys have written. I was LUCKY enough to produce it!”

– Chris Henderson, Guitarist from “3 Doors Down”


“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.”

Kolo, what can I say? Frontman Jon’s unique songwriting style and live performance has audiences riveted wherever they play. The band is a finely-tuned engine that unleashes its power in tight, sporadic bursts of boundless energy, supporting the inherent weirdness of the songs’ subject matter with real musicality – making what could just be a bunch of slightly strange ditties into something so much more than the whims of an off-the-wall artist. Each song is an anthem, put together with precision, and executed with that indescribable skill that brings music and stories to life and makes you want to see a band again and again…and again! 

One Umbrella

I have heard over 50 unsigned artists since I joined the station and I can honestly say KOLO are easily amongst the best I’ve ever had on this show. Keep your eye out for these guys – they are going to be massive!
