Karyo are a four-piece alt. hip-hop band comprising long-time friends and musical collaborators Duncan Powell, Luke Fain, Tom Guilding and Henry Wilson.
Karyo's music is characterised by offbeat guitars, swung rhythms, Jamie T-esque vocals and raucous trumpet hooks. Samples, MIDI pads and guitar effects are used live to create exciting electronic textures reminiscent of Bonobo. The mood is upbeat and rhythmic, perfect for drinking and dancing.
