After teasing us with addictive, colorful tracks over the years, we’re beyond ecstatic to hear that Cosmo’s Midnight is finally releasing their debut album this summer, titled What Comes Next. Though they have expressed their unique sound partly through their stunning collaborations – and the upcoming album contains several – “Polarised,” the newest tease from the album, has Patrick Liney showing off his voice for the first time, a hazy, lucid croon that falls right in line with the fluid nature of the instrumentals. This stream-of-consciousness feeling the track brings is directly related to its origin as well:
”Polarised is the first time I’ve ever sung on a track. We were just riffing on keys and bass and I had a melody running through my head – instead of running it through a synth or something I plugged in my shitty mic and sang the first thing that came to mind. Everything just clicked from there and we went back and finessed it till it was done. I think this song really does capture the feeling of when we wrote it.”
The chunky, chime-like effects and bouncy bass, slightly reminiscent of Anything In Return era Toro y Moi, swirl together as the track plays on, pulsating and reverberating within itself.
What Comes Next will be released on June 15th.
