KOY is the solo project of Berlin-based composer and singer Victoria Trunova. Born in St. Petersburg (RUS) and raised in Germany, KOY has travelled between Berlin (GER), Helsinki (FI), Oslo (NO) and Bergen (NO). Along the way, KOY has collected musical traces that travel with her.
Inspired by both a wild mixture and complete denial of nationalities, KOY could never understand the need to bear an identity solely built on our genetic inheritance. Instead she aims to build a musical space where we can overcome these borders – to be able to feel “homeless” and just in the right place at the same time.
KOY’s music moves between hard-hitting new wave beats, 80’s dream pop, 70’s movies and the sea and salt mixed with some November darkness and a burning heart. Her music makes space for and nurtures all it’s individual components as if they were autonomous beings – creating a spacious and dynamic soundscape.
