“With the song 'Coming For You', I basically try to elevate the dynamics of a failed relationship into a modern understanding,” Koko explains. “We have all become more reflective in the last couple of years but are still struggling to detach from the love addiction.”
“‘Coming for You’ is my way of coping with this struggle.”
As the track progresses, Koko’s portrayal of his aforementioned struggle is showcased through a melodic falsetto into the chorus, overlaying his production, to showcase his musical capability even further.
Koko’s blend of Berlin-inspired techno and passion for pop melodies and songwriting is not his only avenue: he is member of Berlin collective Live from Earth ,a fashion company and record label, too.
