It hasn’t taken long for Cool Sounds to follow up their excellent Cactus Country with another new LP, More to Enjoy. Today, we’re super glad to share the title track from the new LP, offering up this textural blend between psychedelia and tropicalia; it’s an intoxicating mixture of pop sensation you won’t want to miss. The band almost opens up with this classic rock vibe, harkening back to a late 60s groove, but then begin to weird it up as they build in a nice rhythmic underbelly. You’ll find the vocals have this natural wistfulness, they’re bright and melodic, but also seem to be out there searching…though ultimately finding there’s “nowhere to go.” The new LP will be out this Fall via Osborne Again and Meritorio Records.
Less than a year after the release of the excellent Cactus Country LP, Aussie outfit Cool Sounds return with a brand new single and the promise of a new LP later this year. For now, let’s sit back and let the vibes of this tune really seep deep into our pores, soothing the soul. In the opening, there’s a slight keyboard pulse, but shortly, guitars chime in, circling overhead like a pop vulture awaiting its next victim. I think the vocals change things slightly, almost taking on a sunny disposition as they float through the air; it sort of reminds me of Woods a few albums ago. Another hypnotic piece of pop music from a group with endless talent; we’ll keep you posted on more news of that new records.
Soon to be coming across the oceans is Cactus Country, the brand new album of hits from Australia’s Cool Sounds. Today we get to share with you what it’s all about, with this energetic, popping track. It takes on a bit of a warbling folk number to kick things off, soon rolling into a full on bounce by way of the rhythm section. Twanging guitar and keys jump in and out of the tune all along, illustrating the group’s penchant to just craft, dare I say, cool sounds. Love the natural sun shining from the chorus, and I bet you will too. If that’s the case, grab Cactus Countryfrom Osborne Again on October 26th.
I’ve been into the work of Cool Sounds for just a bit, and with the announcement of a new LP on the horizon, lets get back on it. The opening minute and a half is a little more subtle than before, perhaps drawing inspiration from a more classic rock guitar sound, maybe even a fine slice of country. Still, the Melbourne outfit are a pop outfit, so they’re not turning their back on that sound, letting the tension build up until a funky little jam delivers pop sensibility to keep you all in check. Cactus Country will be out on October 26th via Osborne Again.
