Biography

Cocos Lovers are a band made up of husbands, wives, brothers, sisters and friends that hail from Deal on the Kent coast.

Cocos Lovers formed in early 2008 and since their formation have gone from strength to strength. The summer of 2008 saw them play many festivals and gigs, which included a European tour. Over a period of threemonths the band played their way through Holland, Belgium, France, Germany and Spain. They busked their way from place to place and stayed in communes and squats, where this unusual troupe of musicians were welcomed with open arms. The tour lasted proved to be an incredible eye-opening experience, with many of their adventures inspiring new songs.

The songs feature a number of instruments including violin, tenor banjo, mandolin, guitars, flute and ukulele, which compliment the 4/6/8 part harmonies that run through their set to produce a rich, dynamic and interesting sound.

Since their return to the UK they have released two EP’s. Their debut EP, ‘The Story of Lunatic Van Rogue’ released in April 2009 and has since sold out. The second EP ‘Time to Stand’ was released on the 3rd July 2009 and sold out of the 1000 copies pressed in under a fortnight. The band have featured on BBC Introducing where they were described as ‘one of Kent’s most promising new bands’ and also BBC6 Music.

    I bought Johannes in Cornmarket, Oxford, sometime ago, lost it, and found it again earlier today. It is rather good! Well done guys.
