KOYO is a mix of members from extremely heavy hardcore bands — including Typecaste, Rain Of Salvation, Hangman, and Adrenaline yet Koyo leans more into the revived 2000’s emo sound Long Island was also famous for.
“Ten Digits Away feels so time and place to the band right now, it feels like a special moment. It’s everything I love about The music we make with Koyo perfected in its purest, realest, most honest form.” says singer Joey Chiaramonte. “True to everything we’re inspired by and pull from, but also true to the identity the band has formed for itself as we’ve continued writing music.”
He continues “This song is largely about communicating, facing, and accepting feelings. Things I’m not very good at truthfully. Feelings change, they grow, they dissipate, they linger in limbo and unknowns. I think the harder moments in life that come from that are some of the most relatable. As a terrible communicator, I think for once I’ve said exactly what I wanted to say in this song.”
The video, directed by Mason Mercer and filmed on an old Russian camera from the 60s and there was a deliberate effort to make this video vintage, and nostalgic, but in a tasteful way that complements the song.
