Listen: Love Gotten by Bokito
Love Gotten by Bokito
London-based indie afrobeat-pop-funk (or as they call it: “Tropical Indie) band Bokito have released their newest track, “Love Gotten,” to lots of praise, and we are adding our outlet to the list.
This one will have you moving from the first listen, and I will for sure be tuning into whatever else they’ve got up their sleeves.
A bit more about “Love Gotten” –
“Fusing angular art rock and lilting high-life melodies into their uniquely danceable tropical indie sonics, ‘Love Gotten’ finds Bokito in a reflective mood, lyrically at least. The song is, explains singer Moses, “about desperately rushing into a new relationship when your heart has in no way healed. And the true selfishness that goes with hurting good people as a result.”
Such an honest confessional doesn’t stop the band’s third single from being another that could prise the most reluctant wallflower from the back of the party, however, as the fat contrapuntal groove of ‘Love Gotten’ cuts a hip-swaying swathe beneath Moses’ crisscrossing soprano vocal until the whole band combine as one to elevate the slamming chorus. It almost goes without saying for a Bokito release, but ‘Love Gotten’ is a blast from first note to last.”
