On a world map, Komodo wouldn’t be easy to pinpoint. Their psychedelic rock is induced with flavors and magic spells from all over the world: desert blues, surf rock, 60s pop, hip hop, rumba and Indian raga. All of this comes with lush vocal harmonies, non-western sounds & rhythms, and unexpected instruments. Komodo might be a little weird and gritty, but the melodies will get stuck in your head. And can you dance to it? Hell yes!
Komodo is a happy accident. There certainly was no well-thought-out masterplan. The two front men — Gino (of jungle rave band Skip & Die) and Tommy knew each other from parties with jam sessions that lasted until sunrise. One day they took the jam inside to Gino’s own little studio. ...When they came out, they had written and recorded their first song: Bengali Crown. After two more of such jam sessions that both resulted in new songs, they decided they had to make it official and call it a band. They called it Komodo.
Somehow, Sony Music got track of their first three songs. They wanted to sign them right away. Gino and Tommy hadn’t even had the time to recruit actual band members! Half a year later, they were ready to rock & roll and one of their first shows was the prestigious Noorderslag showcase festival in Groningen, Holland.
Komodo will not be pinned down on a world map. And you will not be pinned down on the dancefloor.
