Classic Power Pop Rock: Mokoan

Mokoan mixes influences from the 80’s to punk to power pop rock to get their own unique brand of rock and roll



Melbourne band Mokoan has an eclectic mix of sounds—from the 80’s to the 21st century—that inform their original music, but the one common denominator is rock and roll. Check out their song “Don’t Let It Go” to get an idea of what we’re talking about. Feedback and Ramones style distorted power chords starts this song off before it breaks into a high on the neck power pop riff. Then the fast-paced, positive feeling melody—recalling at times Freddie Mercury and at times a poppy version of Brian Johnson from AC/DC—zooms the song into action. Another one of their original tunes “One Way Destination” brings in a pop punk vibe in the distorted guitar riff and an understated vocal delivery, which helps the song build up slowly until it all opens up in the chorus with huge guitar and synth sounds and a lead singer who just wails—it’s clear that Mokoan performs every single one of their songs with heart and soul. You won’t want to miss your chance to see them the next time they play live. They hit the stage at The Espy this Saturday, May 10th where they’ll battle it out alongside five other fantastic local bands in round one of Emergenza Festival Australia. They’re sure to put on a killer set. Get more details on the show here.
