to me this sound is definitely afternoon in a greek island, i don't know probably back in the 70s or 80s , a pleasant dew, a wonderful sunrise with blue-orange-lilac colors, olive skin, black shiny hair, white soft clothes..mediterranean beauty and the smell of jasmine or fresh roses....

Koop is Oscar Simonsson & Magnus Zingmark.
When listening to Koops music it's somehow easy to believe that it's played by a small orchestra, but in fact the music is based on samples. Thousands of small clips from records puzzled together into new songs. All the drums, strings, horn sections and choires are actually sampled! This is a very time consuming way to make music (it's one of the reasons it takes such long time to make a koop album), but it's the only way to create the surreal Koop sound. One thing though, that for sure aren't sampled, is the vocals. Many singers has blessed the Koop albums with their talent, and on Koop Islands the singers are : Ane Brun, Yukimi Nagano, Hilde Louise Asbjornsen, Rob Gallagher and Mikael Sundin. Koop Island Blues is sung by Ane Brun and is taken from the album "Koop Islands". JF Julian directed the video in Paris. Starring french actor Mia Jacob.
hello my love
it's getting cold on this island
i'm sad alone
i'm so sad on my own
the truth is
that we were much too young
and now I'm looking for you
or anyone like you

we said goodbye
with a smile on our faces
now you're alone
you're so sad on your own
the truth is
that we run out of time
and now youre looking for me
or anyone like me
