KOJ have also performed “Who I Am” as an acoustic version during their latest sundown session. Watch the live session here:

Singer and Guitarist Alina von der Gathen about “Who I Am”:
“Who I Am” talks about what is left after life has turned everything around. You went through something major, felt down and depressed, struggled with your path and whether you should continue the way you did. It’s a song about fragility, desperation, new beginnings and the feeling that everything has changed but that the core of who you are still remains. What defines you will ultimately stay, no matter how shaken up you are by life’s’ struggle and changes.

The song was the last one to be recorded at our session in Denmark. The lyrics are 100% improvised, raw and reflect the uncertainty and emotional instability that the song talks about. In postproduction Hannah Epperson added some ethereal sounds on violin. The band met Hannah at a gig a few months prior and had been moved by her musical skill and personality. The violins that she added to Who I Am brought even more fragility and depth to the song and completed it by adding her unique sound.”

Three musicians. Two brothers. One married couple. This is KOJ. Together they give life to a sound that is full of contrasts, sometimes roaring, untamed and raw, as the ocean that inspires them, other times delicate, fragile and minimalistic.
