After much anticipation, living anomaly COSY have released their first tangible project - an EP titled ‘Something To Believe In’.
The band has spent the last ten years evolving and transforming into the 3 piece band they are today through countless side projects, bands and varying formations. Considering Cosy as they are in present day, bandmates Oscar Van Gass (drums), Albert Pritchard (bass) and Sam Rocchi (vocals/guitar) come together to create a sonic flavour made comprised of some drama, some love and a sprinkle of (amazing) chaotic live performances.
Cosy put out two singles last year that caused waves; ‘Blue’ was released in January and was followed by ‘Buttons’ in October later on that year. X-press magazine had a listen to ‘Buttons’ and was overcome with intrigue at the band’s approach to their music. “There is nothing comfortable about their sound, no cosiness to be found in their rousing rock. Their style is sincere, heart-on-your-sleeve pop-rock...It’s difficult not to get swept up in Cosy’s dramatic storytelling and anthemic rhythm.”
Their EP ‘Something To Believe In’ is a record which runs for 27 minutes - by the time you’ve finished listening to the six tracks, you’re guaranteed to be wrapped up within the emotive lyricism and heart-soothing rock sounds. The band recorded this collection of tracks with Mitch McDonald at Blackbird Sound Studios, who also secretly contributed to the record with their guitar and vocal skills. Further mastered by William Bowden at King Willy Sound and having their album art created in collaboration with Luke Kolbusz, Cosy achieved wrapping up their first official project with a lovely bow that showcases the best of Perth creatives around.
To celebrate the release, Cosy are having a release party at Mojos Bar in Fremantle on August 27. The band is being supported by Gia Como and Jewel Owusu - so definitely not an event you’ll want to miss! For more information, click here.
