Koteri’s ‘Karnaby’ Is A Colourful Introduction

Check out the surreal new video...

North London risers Koteri have shared new single ‘Karnaby’.

Out now, it follows weeks of buzz on social media, with the group allowing their respective talents to intertwine. Super-fun pop music with some underground reference points, new single ‘Karnaby’ taps into the unique madness that is the London summertime.

In a note, Koteri explain that they want to use the single to tell “the experience of adjustment to London culture through the lens of the outsider”.

So, expect tinnies in the park, after parties, and the kind of over-the-top energy only the metropolis can provide. Koteri add: “Everyone’s assembling back in a city, and you still have that live-wire energy of the summer, but you wanna carry it through to the fall and capture London’s essence as well.” 

Blessed with cartoonish energy, ‘Karnaby’ comes equipped with a surreal Jim Longden directed video, one that name-checks  American cartoon series Recess, Home Alone and fake moon landing conspiracy theories.

Speaking about the shoot, Jim says:

“I truly believe that Koteri has a big and promising future in the world of music. So being able to create their first music video was an honour. It was a real test to create what we did in a one day, one location shoot, but I am happy that we managed to achieve all the shots we scripted. The band insisted on having a Dinosaur character to align with their project theme, so I took this on board and tried to see what theatrical mayhem I could mould around it.”

Tune in now.
