Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Kyoto Protocol. I discovered this Band while shuffling songs on Spotify and I liked their compositional style.
This band offers us a very interesting and unique sound.
A way of composing music that looks to the past but at the same time manages to be modern. Crepuscular and nostalgic music capable of speaking directly to the soul and heart.
I must say that the harmonies proposed by the Kyoto Protocol have deeply moved me.
Their music made me travel with my imagination and I saw myself driving a convertible through the streets of a big city one of those days when you want to be alone and forget the problems of life.
A band that spent a lot of time in the rehearsal room to achieve such an enviable musical understanding.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
Nothing Lasts Forever is Kyoto Protocol’s Single Out Now!
Nostalgic and Deep!
Not to be mistaken for members of Greenpeace, Kyoto Protocol is a rare story of the underdog. This was a rock band that started out doing covers in the Kuala Lumpur pub circuit and managed to breakthrough with sheer determination, eventually opening for their heroes such as The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie and Tenacious D in their home country. They moved onto making their own tours in Malaysia and eventually Asia, organically building a loyal fanbase along the way.
In 2021, the band re-ignited their creative streak, with the new single Nothing Lasts Forever after the many lockdowns in Malaysia gave the members some the time and space needed to pen a string of fresh material.
This is their first release since 2018’s The Pen Is Mightier, which was received with aplomb with the album picked as one Bandwagon’s ‘Best Releases of 2018’. The album’s most successful single, The End, peaked at number 31 on the Spotify Top 50 Viral Tracks.
