"Out of the ruins of 'Reeder' (former band members) rides 'Koyen' with their high energy simple rock medium tempo desert/pop tinged numbers. It reminds me of the same level of energy that bands like Dozer come across as having, well that and other things in common.

It's safe to say that the members of Koyen probably describe their sound as desert rock, and why shouldn't they? It's got that same sort of Kyuss/Queens/Desert Sessions vibe.

The vocalist is definitely going for that melodic soul singing s t y l e similar to John Garcia, and the guitar tones and leads could be equally compared to Homme's s t y l e on some levels. Nonetheless, these guys are good at what they do and rock out...and that's what it's all about, the Koyen sound that is.

Simple desert blues rock numbers with soul, not quite as good as the originals but what is? On the same note it would be unfair to say that these guys sound exactly like any of those bands...there is definitely some indie rock flare thrown in here and there, and the songs are more actual written songs than jams if you know what I mean. Good middle of the road stoner stuff overall." ~ StonerRock.Com
