We've had a lot of luck with Coyote bands this year. First, Denver's Young Coyotes sent us their demos over the summer and quickly became one of our favorites. Now, we stumbled upon Karate Coyote.
Karate Coyote formed last year and call Columbus, OH home. Trying to describe them can be a bit difficult, as they can pretty much morph into any genre with ease. Imagine mixing together elements of chaotic indie dance, post-hardcore and melancholy moments that build into a wall of sound like Radiohead is famous for. All with (mostly) female lead vocals. If you can get your head around that, you may come close to touching upon their sound. If not, it's cool. They will be gracing the mid-Atlantic region with their presence this weekend and you can figure it out for yourself.
