Coco, can only be described as an anonymous collective. They humbly refer to their own creations as “a shout in the wind.” Though fans may recognise the makers of Coco tunes, their names are not what these musicians care to share at this time. Having released just two songs prior (“One Time Villain” + “Empty Beach“).
Today the group has released their single/video, “Last of The Loving (created with Renata Zeiguer).” The song emerged from an eight-day recording session at the end of February; the band members traveled from their homes scattered across the US to convene at a friend’s unoccupied studio in Nashville. “We didn’t prepare any material for the session – we wanted every song to begin from the ground up with the three of us together,” they explain. “And because we can trade off engineering duties, we kept to the idea of a self-sustaining, self-sufficient creative trio. For eight days we cooked, slept, wrote, and recorded in the house, breaking only for grocery runs.” The song encapsulates the complexities of companionship in reclusion.
““Last of the Loving” portrays the feelings and sentiments of a blossoming relationship. The world turns and moves while you exist in a new little bubble. Unwittingly, two weeks before the Covid lockdown began, we wrote a song about the intimacy of quarantine, with all its attendant blessings and curses. In this quarantine era, relationships of all sorts have been tested to the limits, many have ended, and against all odds many have begun. All three of us have entered or exited relationships during the lockdown, which makes this recording feel particularly prophetic and poignant from the perspective of summer 2020.”
