Cosmo V emerges with a fully-fledged vision, with tracks of warm fuzzy simplicity. Inspired by bands and artists like Nirvana, Mazzy Star, the Velvet Underground and Nico, as much as the blazing verse of poets like Charles Bukowski and Maya Angelou, Cosmo V holds the purity of the song in higher regard than pristine production values.
Her sound collects tracks of unique minimalistic psychedelic pop, mixing hiphop loops, live percussion and reverb, into immersive stories that touch the soul. Springy bass lines weave their way through Cosmo's sonic jungle, providing the foundation for her dreamy vocals to float over the top.
Originally studying fine art (and graduating as a restorator), Cosmo found herself drawn to computers and found producing her own songs a much better expression of her artistic endeavors.Cosmo's Moluccan heritage gives her a different twist on today's hazy ethereal pop perspective. Her blues runs deeper than simply the aftermath of a first romance, or deciding which bar to go to on a Friday night. Landmarks of American war-era literature, such as Carson McCullers' The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, are re-imagined into the modern world, splintered through a prism of Jesus and The Mary Chain, The Doors and the Velvet Underground, all drenched in reverb and tape saturation.
