With a sound that's unpredictable and a daring personal style, ko aka koala stands out in a crowded pop field. The daughter of scientists, she's created a universe inspired by Y2K punk, genre films, and '80s animation.

Her singles prior to 2022 were dark and dense. Recent releases, including her latest "hit & run," are more radio friendly, but the production and vocals retain an experimental touch.

Jordan Edwards and Demi Ramos talk to ko about the new single, her previous life as a DJ, and the intersection of music and visuals.
