Known for their passionate live performances, haunting harmonies and asphalt-tinged desert rock grooves, Kroka combine low-slung fuzzy stoner riffs with tight vocal harmonies and a pop songwriting sensibility to take audiences on a journey through mythology, dive bars, and ultimately, into themselves...
