Profile:
Post punk / dark wave duo from Vancouver, Canada.

Koban is a storm that has been gathering over the Pacific Northwest since 2011. Koban naturally and seamlessly genre bend, their punk roots buried deep under layers of melded synth, goth and post-punk. This creates a unique sound which is simultaneously full and sparse, atmospheric and uneasy. A drum machine creates a baseline over which moody interchanging vocals and blown-out guitar noise quickly and organically oscillates. Their lyrics give a wink and nod to their influences and feature songs sung in French for an icy touch. Koban leave you with a feeling of being utterly new and a sense of déjà vu. - Megon McCaul - Only Death Is Fatal
