Today, twin ARIA-nominated duo, Cosmo’s Midnight return with their latest single and video, “Bang My Line” featuring Tkay Maidza, out now via Sony Music (Australia), RCA Records (USA) & Black Butter Records (UK).
A silken and smooth slice of West-Coast funk, “Bang My Line” will transplant you directly to the hazy glitz of a palm-tree lined LA. A slapping bass line calls for a subtle head nod, as a falsetto of ooh’s serenade the chorus. Tkay Maidza’s unmistakable flow coolly enters to effortlessly match the energy drummed up by the twins, atop a pastiche of live instrumentation and an organic peachy beat. Today’s accompanying video, directed by Harry Scott, sees Cosmo’s Midnight grooving beachside. Walkie talkie in hand, Cosmo waits for a call from his crush. Tkay Maidza next appears as a stylistic vision, lime green eyeshadow matching a technicolour array of effects as she seamlessly delivers her verses.
Cosmo’s Midnight say of the track, “We started writing 'Bang My Line' back in 2020, and finished it last year with Winston Surfshirt in his poolside studio/house that feels like it was transplanted straight out of LA. In between playing darts, swimming and a few drinks we came up with this sunny, cruisey west coast-inspired jam. It’s about waiting for your crush to ‘Bang Your Line’ because you're too spooked to make the first move. It’s so fitting that Tkay was keen to hop on this track as it feels like the stars were totally aligned with her moving to LA and her LYWW mixtapes stylistically blending perfectly with us.”
Since making serious waves in the Australian music scene in 2018 with their widely appraised, triple j Feature Album debut, 'What Comes Next', the multi-instrumentalist, songwriting and production act continue to sell out shows at home and around the globe. After closing 2021 with sets at Wildlands Festival, Beyond the City on NYE, Lost Disco on NYD, and South Korea’s virtual Busan International Rock Festival in October, the pair last month expanded their impressive resume with electrifying live shows around Australia in support of Flight Facilities on their FOREVER Tour. Next, they travel to London for a highly awaited reunion with UK fans, performing on in July.
Groove along as Cosmo’s Midnight resume play on their fun-loving hits, and collaborate on “Bang My Line” with fellow Aussie beloved music star, Tkay Maidza.
