With music that is contemplative, experimental, and expressive, Mikoo create their own genre of indie-jazz songcraft. They utilize the experimental to enhance, detail and move their songs forward, rather than simply have experimentation as an end in itself. The lyrics are somewhat off-the-wall, imbued with a dark absurdism, yet are filled with poignancy. From song to song, the moods shift along with the instrumentation, taking us through misty soundscapes one moment, then into off-kilter modern jazz, then into a world where folk sensibilities chart their course through an archipelago of avant garde, expressionist and experimental islands. Thematically, both the lyrics and music deal with the loss of loved ones. While there are some moments that approach a darkly whimsical and barely contained hysteria, as though the whole song could explode at any moment, there are also siren songs to both haunt and comfort the restless imagination.
Mikoo was formed by drummer and composer Michaela Antalová from Slovakia in 2016. In December 2017, the band released four singles in the form of live videos on the internet. Since then the band has been on four tours in Norway, Sweden, Germany, the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
