New kids on the indie/alt-pop block, Cosmo Calling neatly sum up everything that is cool about the modern mainstream music scene. Mainstream used to be a dirty word for serious artists but now all those underground vibes and effortless cool of bands side lined first time around are being filtered into the younger consciousness via parents record collections and the passage of time conferring retro status.
The result is slick, pop driven, infectious indie music that links the past with the present. Like Lightning deftly blends the chiming new pop of the post-punk period with the slick dance vibes of the modern dance floor and probably does so without even realising it. That’s musical osmosis for you.
