KOO Koop Oscar Orchestra / Former Koop's New Project

It’s been almost 9 years since ‘Koop Islands’, the latest album release from Swedish Electronic Jazz Act Koop, originally consisting of Magnus Zingmark and Oscar Simonsson.
Now, Simonsson introduces his new music project; KOO Koop Oscar Orchestra, created in December 2014 and apparently is set to release a first 3-track EP in September 2015 on Revel & Hoffman, their new label.
Koop Oscar Orchestra will feature O. Simonsson in Pi, Smlp and accordion, Niklas Barnö in trumpet, Ulrik Ording in drums, Love Meyerson also in Accordion, Niklas Fernqvist in Double Bass and Jazzu in Vocals.
At the moment no further news on a new full album, but definitely looking forward to seeing what they have in store, in the meantime check out a teaser! And just in case you are not familiar with Koop's previous work (9 years is a while), check out Koop Island Blues:
