Koi, The Great is an alternative rock band from Puerto Rico founded in early 2020. The band set out to bring back the 2007 nostalgic emo sound that we all now and love. With influences from every genre that built the members passion for music, they settled for a middle ground in Alternative Rock; going from 2000s alternative rock to post grunge and even modern jazz and alternative pop. This results in a modern alternative rock identity with a distinctive sound.
"Koi, The Great" stems from the Japanese lore of a koi fish who, just as Koi’s members have, refused to give up, gaining it the respect of the gods and becoming a dragon. This translates in a strict work ethic that has resulted in enough material for two full length albums before the world knew who they were. The band is currently marketing what their debut album Against The Currents that was released on October 14, 2021. Their introductory singles MADNESS, Lost and Old Love blend their many musical influences and talents into a fresh new sound
While Koi is a new band, its members have shared the stage before in different bands, playing tons of shows in the local scene. Previous bands have opened for international acts like Panic! At The Disco, From Ashes to New, Stryper, and Vince Neil.
