NMM SoundBytes: LokkisKott Takes Us “Deep Inside” His Unique Alternative Sound

LokkisKott, the New South Wales Australia singer-songwriter isn’t what you typically expect when you hear the term “singer-songwriter”. A term oft attached to Americana, folk, or even pop songwriters, it’s not as common to see the term associated with an artist more likely to be embraced by fans of Linkin Park or Slipknot than fans of James Taylor or Ben Folds. Yet, this is exactly what we get here with LokkisKott, a singer-songwriter fueled by metal, hard rock, and alternative music.

With a melodic blend of aggressive and clean vocals, comparisons to the dual vocals of mainstream artists like the aforementioned Linkin Park – Bennington and Shinoda (minus the rap) – or indie acts like now defunct NJ hardcore meets emo meets folk act Full Surrender feel very appropriate. Of course, in this case, all of the vocals are performed and recorded by Lachie Alford himself – aka LokkisKott.

The musical backdrop deserves comparison to bands like Linkin Park, as well, albeit with a beautiful simplicity that creates a catchy and pleasant experience. In fact, there are few experiences as pleasant as LokkisKott’s “Deep Inside” when it comes to being yelled at.

The track is available now on Spotify and it’s a fantastic way to start your day!

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
