Exclusive: Køster Premieres “Numbrain” Music Video via Rock Hard
Watch it Here!
Køster supporting The Lazys In Toronto on July 29th
KØSTER’s rock knockout “Numbrain”, produced by Justin Benlolo (BRKN LOVE), is an undeniably energetic head-turner. Today, the track’s hotly anticipated music video is premiering exclusively via Rock Hard, one of Europe’s pristine rock publications. Directed by Scott Baker, the music video is available to watch now at THIS location.
“I wanted to make this a simple artsy video with a dark feel to it, because the song is about being tied down by addiction and finding a way through the darkness. Scott really killed it with the lighting and the branding aspect of the video. It was perfect and exactly what my vision of the song was,” explains Køster.
Køster has paid the price for rock ‘n’ roll, debuting his first live show ever in a hospital gown suffering third-degree burns. Known for his wild side, he never slows down. This spring his debut single “Numbrain” was released to Canadian Rock Radio and quickly cracked the Top 10 Most Active Indie at Yangaroo DMDS. It was featured on X929, BCIT, 104.9 The Wolf, 94.9 The Rock, X1007, 1003 The Bear, CBC Rock Canada, and more. It was added to 10+ international playlists and received press praise from The Sound Lab, calling it, “a well-made track with some nice modern sounds coming through. Can’t wait to play.” Recently, Køster sat down with Todd Hancock of Toddcast Podcast for a chat about the single, listen to it HERE.
Now working on his upcoming album “What Did you Expect?” with Benlolo, the legendary Cone McCaslin of Sum 41 fame, and having teamed up with global online mentoring initiative Bandwagon, Køster was able to secure management with founder Leon Harrison of The Lazys. In addition to this, Køster will be supporting The Lazys in Toronto at the legendary Horseshoe Tavern on July 29th. Tickets can be purchased HERE!
Although Køster only burst onto the music scene in 2022, he isn’t new to the game, having been the vocalist for now-defunct punk rockers The Fallaways. In the summer of ‘22 he made the move from Vancouver to Toronto to pursue his new project. Shortly after his arrival, he met Benlolo and before you could say ‘kindred spirits,’ there were two songs in the can, both co-written and produced by Benlolo. With Benlolo and McCaslin behind the board, Køster’s upcoming album is clearly going to be a powerful knockout.
Born in Switzerland and raised in Burns Lake, BC, Køster discovered his love for punk rock and alternative music like countless other young Canadians — by watching bands like Sum 41, Billy Talent and Rise Against on MuchMusic through his early teens. He soon realized his goal and purpose in life was to join their ranks.
