Giant Step Presents Quadron
Thursday, April 25
(Le) Poisson Rouge, New York NY
We are delighted to bring you the return of Danish duo Quadron aka vocalist Coco O. and multi-instrumentalist / producer Robin Hannibal. With their upcoming sophomore album out June 4th, they will showcase a new sound that bridges soul, pop, folk, and electronic music and reveals influences such as Lauryn Hill and Sade.
First introduced by a mutual friend, vocalist Coco O., and multi-instrumentalist/producer Robin Hannibal (also one-half of the duo Rhye) had immediate chemistry. Robin’s flair for layering the intricacies of chord progressions, composition, and instrumentation come from his love for musical greats such as Ennio Morricone and Charles Stepney. Displaying vocal power and chemistry, Coco’s voice is so distinct that together, the duo blend their influences to give way to true artistry.
Recognizing the tremendous talent of the duo, both New York Magazine, as well as L.A’s well-respected KCRW DJ Anthony Valadez, named their self-titled album (2009) as one of the “Top Ten Best” of the year. Most notably, the band got tremendous support by Prince, Gilles Peterson, and Adele. Coco’s unique voice also caught the attention of Tyler, The Creator and spawned collaboration between the two artists.
