Bo & Airo

Milwaukee, WI

 

Milwaukee-based duo Bo & Airo is one-of-a-kind. Performing a stripped-down set of bass guitar and drums in combination with hard-hitting rap vocals, their live show is pure spectacle.

Bo Triplex's (bass) energetic movements inform his vocal presence, with melodic bass lines complimenting the visceral rhythms of his accomplice Airo Kwil (drums). Airo is a wordsmith whose percussive instincts underlie attacking bars and fierce bravado.

On their debut EP ‘I’ we are introduced to an aggressive sound reminiscent of Rage Against The Machine pollinated with artists akin to NAS. Songs such as "Cupid" showcase a more playful dimension of the pair, while "Distant Future" reflects on our place in time as the artists self-reflect. Their stage show draws comparison to everyone from Death Grips to Run The Jewels.
