Bio

Cool Sounds are a Melbourne-sprung indie guitar-pop outfit. They’ve been playing together since the mid 10’s, fluid in line-up but with writer/vocalist Dainis Lacey at the heart of it, whose idiosyncratic vocal makes the band instantly recognisable. Notable for their guitar-lick interplay and hook laden melodies, the band make jangly pop songs brimming with ideas. With 3 EP’s and 3LP’s under their belt, Cool Sounds have established themselves as mainstays in the Australian Indie Music scene.

Took me a few go's to get used to that almost Tom Snowdon vocal delivery. But I kept coming back, and glad I did. There's something really compelling about that bass line. But I'm also hearing some '70s West Coast/jazz rock influences in here which ain't something I come across every day.

this is obviously yet another excellent serve from CS. y'all are absolute masters when it comes to making top tier production sound effortlessly cool.

From bassline to vocal and everything in between (but especially bassline) this song is a fine wine sipped from earthenware.
