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 know 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, refused to give up, gaining it the respect of the gods and becoming a dragon. This translates into our strict work ethic that has results in the band's constant stream of content.

Their debut album Against The Currents was released on October 14, 2021, which blends their many musical influences and talents into a fresh sound that's filled with nostalgic grunge roots.
