Quentin from The Teenagers meets Koko Von Napoo

Quentin Delafon quizes Koko Von Napoo on matters of taste

Koko Von Napoo is an all French group consisting of three girls and one boy. The band came together in Paris via Brighton and take their name from a 1920s Mancunian gang. There unique sound takes reference from Felt, ESG and John Mauss. My favourite tracks include Polly and JonBon - great examples of enchanting pop music. They are touring the UK this March. Go check them out...

Quentin: Songs or clothes?
Koko Von Napoo: Songs. With goods songs you can buy clothes.
