Australian rising duo Cosmo’s Midnight release their first 2021 single “Titanic” featured along with an offciail video
The new single ‘Titanic‘ builds on their distinctive sound with a fusion of funk and house, in the process linking up with APRA award-winning and ARIA-nominated producer and multi-instrumentalist, Louis Schoorl (5 Seconds of Summer, Girls’ Generation, M-Phazes). The uplifting sonic canvas is rich with guitars, shimmering synths and a classic four on the floor drum pattern, as Pat’s dynamic falsettos bridge a juxtaposition of dejected lyrics on past regrets, signalling an evolution from last year’s LP.
Pat says: “We wrote ‘Titanic’ earlier this year with the extremely talented Louis Schoorl. We were all in his studio. I was on an old Rhodes, Cosmo was on his bass and we were just jamming out some ideas. We came up with ‘Titanic’ in about half an hour, we were loving this progression on the Rhodes that me and Louis had come up with and Cos just had this super simple but effective baseline. ‘Titanic’ kind of feels like a thematic progression from Yesteryear. It’s reflecting on past regrets but instead of Yesteryear where it’s kind of got this hint of optimism to it, ‘Titanic’ is kind of pessimistic with the lyrics ‘you said we’d be okay but I don’t feel that way’. It’s like the moment just before everything spirals downwards.”
the Sydney duo kicked off 2021 accompanying acts such as DMA’s, Winston Surfshirt and Tones And I for Wollongong’s Yours & Owls Festival, where their new live show debuted on the festival stage. They next dropped the heavily teased Yesteryear (Remix Album). Exquisitely mirroring the original record, the remix project presents a collage of genre with artists like RIMON, HONNE, Friendly Fires, Omar S, Emma-Jean Thackray, Hot 8 Brass Band and more bringing forth their own twists on each album track
They say: “It’s been such an experience hearing from all these incredible artists from such diverse backgrounds and genres re-interpret our music and pull them into completely new sonic spaces. We draw inspiration as writers from so many different areas so It’s been super gratifying to mirror that variety with this collection of remixes.”
