The Lawhon brothers formed KO KO in 2012. They released three songs on Bandcamp and, a week later, received a record deal from Republic Records. Due to the number of other groups using the "KO KO" moniker, the group changed its name to Pacific Air and began work on their first EP.
In October 2012, the group released the Long Live KOKO EP. The record received critical acclaim, as did the EP's lead single, "Float". "Float" saw a rise in popularity following a flurry of Hype Machine success and a number of remixes including Ra Ra Riot, RAC, TheFatRat, Robert Delong and Sound Remedy. Shortly after the release of the EP, Pacific Air embarked on several tours, opening for bands such as Passion Pit, Walk the Moon, Two Door Cinema Club and Ra Ra Riot. During this time, they have also been promoting their debut studio album, Stop Talking, which released on June 11 2013. Read more on Last.fm.
