Three musicians. Two brothers. One married couple. This is KOJ. Together they give life to a sound that is full of contrasts, sometimes roaring, untamed and raw, as the ocean that inspires them, other times delicate, fragile and minimalistic.
KOJ recently released their new single Human Love.
The song features quirky melodies, stellar vocals, memorable hooks, impressive grooves, and brilliant guitar work.
KOJ’s lyrics are impressive. Every line in the song is golden.
“Imagine you were a person on a spaceship, all by yourself for years, floating in deep space. You would feel the longing for human love, for someone to say your name out loud. How does it feel to be so lonely, to feel so detached from everything that makes us human? How does it feel to know that you will never feel that connection again? Human Love is a reflection on modern society on life happening on screens and on losing connection to reality.
Human Love was the final track that we recorded for our album HOME (coming 21 Aug 2020) on the last days in the studio. It is also the final track on HOME and closes the chapter. Writing this song was a tour de force. With all the expectations that built up for HOME, we wanted to finish the album as intentionally as we opened it with Stars. Human Love wraps up the message of the album beautifully by emphasizing that, to move forward, we need real human connection.”
The video captures the essence of the song. It was made by Simon von der Gathen.
KOJ creates an atmosphere. They have so much talent. Human Love deserves 5 stars. It’s a masterpiece, in my opinion.
