New Music – Cosmo Sheldrake – Come Along
Cosmo Sheldrake is a 27 year old from London who released the album “The Much Much How How & I” earlier this month. It is a quirky and quite unique offering that features a wide variety of instruments and sounds. It’s worth exploring and you can do so below…
Cosmo Sheldrake, the prodigiously talented and profoundly unique 27-year-old singer, songwriter, composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist from London, has announced details of his debut albumThe Much Much How How and I out Friday 6th April 2018 on Transgressive Records.
The Much Much How How and I was written under the influence of a diverse group of musicians -ranging from The Beatles and The Kinks to Moondog and Stravinsky – and shaped by Sheldrake͛s study of anthropology at the University of Sussex, his longstanding interest in ethnomusicology and a trip to Mardi Gras in New Orleans.
Produced by Cosmo Sheldrake and Matthew Herbert (Bjork, Mica Levi, London Sinfonietta) and recorded at Soup Studios and Cosmo͛s basement, the album will be available on limited edition vinyl, CD and download. The news is shared alongside the music video for current single “Come Along”- the first to be taken from the record. Discussing the surreal visual accompaniment, Cosmo offered the following:
“The video for Come Along, directed by Josh Allott, explores the experience of both having head lice and being a head louse. Microscopic worlds expand and consume the macroscopic world of the large.
Human heads become continents, scalps become landscapes, salons become solar systems . Comealong now.”
