Watch La Coco's Video For New Single 'Gone'

Waiata Māori Music Award winner and Pacific Music Award nominee La Coco returns with 'Gone', a beat heavy track featuring lyrics exploring the ideas of love and loss. Through organisation Oceans Before Me, La Coco linked up with mentors and Polynesian Panthers members Tigilau Ness, Melani Anae and Alec Toleafoa, which sparked new themes in her songwriting, specifically the grief of leaving your home and never going back: "When our people migrated and moved away, they had left People, Land and Precious things behind. And this is hard to part with let alone live with the feeling that they may never see these again". Made with support from NZ On Air, Euphoric Co. provide the buzzy otherworldly visuals for 'Gone'. Take the time to listen closely to La Coco's lyrics, then listen again for the slick Malachi Samulelu production and Freedom Setu's backing vocals...

La Coco's EP 'Too Far Gone' is due for release later this year.
