* MERCURY MUSIC PRIZE CONTENDERS RELEASE DEBUT ALBUM *
* INCLUDES COVER OF LULLABY BY THE CURE , SANCTIONED BY ROBERT SMITH *
The third album from London based music cooperative, the 2012 Mercury Music Prize contender ‘Cosmosis’ is an extraordinary, cross genre album from the band whose core members of Patrick Bird, Raj Vivekananthan, Big G and Chris Bell (Gene Loves Jezebel, Hugh Cornwell) are now joined by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Mel Draisey (The Clientele, Le Volume Courbe) fresh from her chores with Primal Scream, with additional guitars from Jon Klein (Siouxsie & The Banshees).
Three singles are lined up to be issued across the summer, the 1st was the radio friendly ‘I’ve Got You Now’ – a sublime, summery, acoustic tune that instantly has you humming it for hours after hearing it, accompanied by the video exclusively for iTunes .
Next up is a phenomenal cover of The Cure’s ‘Lullaby’, sanctioned by Robert Smith himself, this version takes the song to a whole new dimension with the inclusion of some superb vocals courtesy of Big G. This single is accompanied by an incredible film shot on location in deepest Cornwall.
The Third single will be ‘Confusion’ a favourite at the live shows, with its punky ska rhythm and will be made available in September to coincide with the last of the festival appearances at Looe Music Festival, Cornwall alongside The Skints, The Levellers & The Stranglers.
So, what of the rest of the album itself? A beautiful blend of trippy meandering tunes ‘Trip to Arizona’ rubbing shoulders with some powerful rock pop tunes like the album’s opening track and live favourite ‘It Keeps Me Up’, ‘No More Rollercoasters’ and ‘A Million Light Years’ rolling into the low down and dirty ‘Three Of A Kind’ with its reggae backbeat, culminating in the quite epic ‘Cosmosis’, will hopefully leave you breathless, until you play it all again.
The band is touring the UK throughout the summer. Album is released in Oct / Nov.
