Kekko is the psychedelic lovechild of Singaporean dream-pop duo Tim and Cherie Kekko. They have announced the release of their debut EP ‘Dreaming Life’, due 11th June via Spirit Goth.
“Once upon a time, I dreamt I was a butterfly, fluttering hither and thither, to all intents and purposes a butterfly. I was conscious only of my happiness as a butterfly, unaware that I was myself. Soon I awaked, and there I was, veritably myself again. Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man.”
This introspective musing by ancient Chinese philosopher Zhuangzi sets the tone of Kekko’s debut EP, “Dreaming Life”. It is an invitation into the dreamworld that Kekko has designed; one that feels strangely familiar but yet at the same time, remarkably exciting and surreal. Perhaps it is the boundless space of all creation, where doer and deed are all but one, where the listener and music are two sides of the very same coin.
