Cosmos Says Hello – It’s Not All (Weird and Wonderful)

This, ladies and gentlemen, is a unique sound originating from New York City. Not just ordinary everyday sound, no. This is different. In an atmosphere created by what I’d like to call a “handmade shimmer”, this track, taken off “The Album” has a bright energy attached to it.

And this energy comes with a signature-styled retro vibe that is reflected by a matured instrument backing. Somehow, the vocals are floating on a sea of sound consisting of synth arps and a simple yet ultra-effective main melody. “It’s Not All (Weird and Wonderful)” has an honest core that is amplified by handmade emotions, so to speak. For me, it also contains a melancholic element that feels like looking back on the past with a mix of feelings. Loving the good times, and accepting the bad ones. The sound makes me enjoy a look back in time and space, as the melodies and lyrics guide you down a dark road through your memories.

And that’s what makes the works of Cosmos Says Hello so special. It catalyzes thinking and feeling, it makes you dance, smile and (the most important thing) feel. Exactly what good music is all about.
