Fresh off the buzz from their long-awaited sophomore album Yesteryear, Cosmo’s Midnight today return to share their new scintillating single, "Titanic", out via Sony Music and RCA Records.
Opening with glittery chords and a pulsating bassline, "Titanic" builds on their distinctive sound with a fusion of funk and house, in the process linking up with 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 dynamic falsettos bridge a juxtaposition of dejected lyrics on past regrets, signaling an evolution from last year’s LP.
Speaking on the creative process behind the track, one part of Cosmo's Midnight, Pat Liney shares, “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."
The release of "Titanic" follows a string of accolades for the brothers in the past year, most recently seeing their singles “Get To Know” feat. Winston Surfshirt and “History” respectively reach career-first awarding and recognitions. Prior, 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
Since making their 2018 debut, What Comes Next, Cosmo’s Midnight have enjoyed quite a rise with no signs of slowing down. The multi-instrumentalist, songwriting and production act’s 2020 sophomore body of work, Yesteryear cemented years of honing their sonic identity, coming to form as a multi-faceted live artist project. Cosmo’s Midnight have basked in the opportunity to grace the stages of St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Listen Out, Splendour in the Grass, and sold out headline shows in the US, Asia, UK and Europe as well as major Australian venues, including the iconic Sydney Opera House.
With their evolving sound and perseverance in exploring new directions, Cosmo’s Midnight's latest release "Titanic" marks a new chapter and sets the stage for more to come from the powerhouse act.
