Upcoming indie pop band Lokomoko releases their latest album ‘Go Mi Ka Di Da Be’ via Oddwop. Shortly before life brought him to Brooklyn, songwriter Mario Schöning and his initial band finished the mini-album “Go Mi Ka Di Da Be” in his hometown Hamburg, Germany.
Lokomoko’s new album is a kaleidoscopic collection of songs written over the course of a couple of years since the first output ‘Harold Weir’ (Oddwop, 2017). It takes influences from classic 70s and 80s songwriter-pop and squishing it into a vivid and very personal understanding of psychedelia. As a result, the songs are almost weightless, their sugary melodies stick with you no matter what. The more you listen, the more you sink in Lokomoko’s jelly extravagance. Think John Lennon recorded Crowded House’ Don’t Dream It’s Over for a television sitcom. The title suggests the approach of the music itself, delivering songs of heartfelt nonsense, communicating more with nuances in sound and noise than big words. ‘Go Mi Ka Di Da Be’ is a ticket to the ethereal world of Lokomoko, where not necessarily everything makes sense, but it just feels right.
