We love our independents — so it was pretty cool to have a collision with Brisbane-based all female trio – Koko Uzi — during our recent trip to Australia.
We immediately picked up on a “never may care” attitude aura from this band who pride themselves on just having a good time while playing a rather traditional grungey/dirty guitar orientated set — which they like to refer to as “growl & meow” (LOL!)
They list their primary influence as the 1990’s grunge scene and that most certainly does effectively come across. A quick summary might be that Koko Uzi do have a sound much like earlier days L7 — and we mean that in a totally good way.
Koko Uzi features guitarist, Michelle Bowden (Mi Mi Uzi), Lisa Kunde (Li Li Uzi) singer/bass, and Alana Manix (Alana Bam Bam Uzisinger) drummer. They self describe as “Bad-ass female warriors” — and that’s pretty apt!
