After a melancholic minor key start, Los Cozmatics’ orchestrally scored debut single, Tears, builds into a captivating narrative around a protagonist going through the motions while controlled by ennui to the tune of alt-indie melodies spiked with resilience and dejection.
With poetically bitter-sweet lyrics, “he had no time for the rain falling on his tears”, Tears holds a captivating panoramic expression. With the elegantly soulful Winehouse-reminiscent vocals over the mash of angular indie guitars and orchestral strings, Tears is a triumph in authenticity. We hope to hear plenty more from Los Cozmatics in 2022. They’re exactly what our sad AF societies need.
Tears is now available to stream on all major platforms via this link.
