Is it folk? Is it pop? Is it french? The Coconut Kids defy genres and have sprung up on the Adelaide scene wooing audience with their live performances. Within their short life-span, they’ve made it to the State Finals at the 2015 National Campus Band Competition – achieved live radio play (ABC 891) – and have already lined up some interstate folk festival appearances for next year (news to come). All of this before even recording an EP.
With their first studio recording taking place in February – these worldly kids (band members from Belgium, Ireland & Australia) create french influenced world folk using brass, trumpet, bass, keys and violin to produce a truly original toe-tapping sound that leaves you wanting more. A band to keep an eye on.
