Quadron on tour in support of their second album, Avalanche.
The group features vocalist/songwriter Coco O. and multi-instrumentalist/producer Robin Hannibal. The single “Hey Love“, a collaboration with British producer Fraser T Smith (Adele, Florence and the Machine), preceded the release of the new record.
Coco O and Hannibal are originally from Denmark and now based in Los Angeles. According to a press release, “Quadron first began to attract attention with their 2010 self-titled debut album, which New York magazine ranked No. 7 on its list of the Top 10 albums of 2010. A year later, Raphael Saadiq invited Quadron to be the opening act on his 2011 tour….”
Other fans include producer Mark Ronson, British soul singer Jessie Ware and The Cool Kids’ Chuck English, who name-checks Quadron as his “favorite group. Period. As far as new music goes, there’s nothing better.”
Even Odd Future‘s The Internet credits Quadron with “changing my entire outlook on music and where you can go with it,” while the hip-hop collective’s leader, Tyler, The Creator, says, “Coco O. has the voice of an actual angel.”
Coco recently joined Tyler and The Roots on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to perform their collaboration “TreeHome,” which you can watch HERE.
