Kosoti - Barks & Sticks 
Kosoti - Barks & Sticks

Release Date: 29th September 2014

I really want to like this single from North-East collective Kosoti but I can't get away from the fact that this sounds like a parody of Mumford & Sons. 'Bark & Sticks' has all the necessary ingredients - gruff voice, furious finger picking, pounding rhythms - but it just doesn't quite have that spirit stirring effect that bands like Brother & Bones have when they are in full flow. There are some nice lead guitar parts and a female vocal harmony that adds another dimension altogether but there's just something not quite clicking here despite the obvious talent the band has.
