KOYO are a slightly different beast live compared to the minimal studio material released so far. Lost In The Kingdom, possibly the most obviously classic, symphonic, prog-tinged track they’ve released, with its epic intro, becomes a harder edged, more febrile proposition on stage, more alt-rock and grunge than minstrels and elves.
