Cosby – Overboard

Cosby

Cosby

After the success of the infectious and lauded ‘Heartracer‘, the Cosby boys are staying on trend and returning with 80’s synth tune ‘Overboard’.

The youthful track is short but sweet. Close your eyes and envisage listening to ‘Overboard’ in your dream sports car with the top down and wind in hair.

The track was released on  22 April and is taken from the ‘Summer Gold’ EP.

Cosby – Heartracer

Cosby – Heartracer

Time for some super dreamy 80’s inspired synth pop from up-and-coming Cosby.

Led by Richmond-based brothers Chris and Chip Cosby with Mike Levinson on drums/percussion, ‘Heartracer’ is the first single off their forthcoming record.

The boys describe the track as being about “that moment when we finally feel at ease with the realization that we are all, for better or worse, heading in the same direction on this big floating rock in space we call Earth.”

Having already opened for Future Islands and finished as a semi-finalist in last year’s International Songwriting Competition, Cosby is definitely one to watch!

The Naked and Famous – Show Review

The Naked And Famous

The Naked And Famous

Indietronica popped down to the Concorde 2 in Brighton to watch New Zealander’s The Naked And Famous, with support from Sons & Lovers.

Upon entering the venue, there was a intoxicating smell of sweets, which we soon realised was not fruit cider. It is safe to say that TNAF attract a young crowd, however this should not dissuade any potential, ‘older’ listeners from attending their shows. TNAF has a lot to offer all ages.

Proceedings were kicked off with the epic ‘I Kill Giants’. TNAF continued to play an eclectic mix of old and new tracks, including ‘A Stillness’, ‘Punching in a Dream’, ‘All of This’, ‘Waltz’, and ‘What We Want’.

Thom Powers and Alisa Xayalith presented real chemistry on stage and remained ever-humble, getting the crowd singing along to title track from their latest sophomore album, ‘In Rolling Waves’, and swaying to ‘Hearts Like Ours’.

Events were encored with the crowd’s favourite, ‘Young Blood’.

TNAF has expanded their critically acclaimed sophomore full-length, ‘In Rolling Waves’ with a special deluxe edition available on iTunes now via Fiction. The deluxe edition includes remixes by Sombear, Ducky, Big Black Delta, and MS MR. In addition, the band enlisted the talents of The Chain Gang of 1974, Space Above, and Strange Babes to cut covers of select songs, each act adding their own flair and fire to the music in the process.

A special shout out to Sons & Lovers who gave an excellent supporting performance.
