2014 release from the primary creative outlet for songwriter Toby Driver (Secret Chiefs 3, Vaura, Maudlin of the Well). COFFINS ON IO was recorded and mixed by Marc Urselli (John Zorn, Mike Patton, Lou Reed) and is the band's most well produced work to date. Kayo Dot's evolution is governed by an inscrutable inner-logic. Accessible songwriting on COFFINS ON IO and an emphasis on vocal melody and electronic percussion makes the record's darkness and intensity familiar and relatable. 'Basically the vibe that we're going for here is inspired by '80s retro- future noir Blade Runner,' Driver explains. 'I wanted to make a good record to put on while you drive across the desert at night under a toxic, post-apocalyptic atmosphere,' he says, adding, 'There's a weird underlying theme of murder, shame and death.'
