Mr. Koifish is Morten Køie’s new band. You might remember Morten from Danish Band, Turboweekend, where he brought a smile and a raised eyebrow to a packed festival or concert hall on his bass. Now he’s going to show you his new vibe with songs written during the Turboweekend years and produced by Hot Gills with a new collective of musicians, family and friends.
The first single is titled ‘The End’, and it’s all about new beginnings, about leaving the past behind and embracing the future head on with energy and a light-hearted enthusiasm. Morten is joined on vocals by his wife, Sofie Hannibal, who was pregnant with their first child at the time of the recording. This heartfelt and honest duet sets a tone of hope for new life and a love of change.
Morten says: “Mr. Koifish is the place where I can fit all my inspirations, personality and my sweet friends in music into one big family of sounds. And in this track I pay homage to my great love of trip-hop and I also indulge myself with a nice big helping of auto-tune too. Let’s have some fun!”
