Bio

Cool Sounds are a seven-piece Melbourne indie / guitar-pop outfit, notable for their clean instrumental interplay, melodic lines and earnest delivery. Lead by Dainis Lacey, whose falsetto makes the band instantly recognisable, the band have previously released LP "Dance Moves" and EP "Gristle" to critical acclaim and packed club shows. With the announcement of their new record "Cactus Country" for late October, the band are set to continue their output of neat, un-ashamed songs featuring twangy guitars and counter-balanced melodies.

Enjoying this latest evolution in the Cool Sounds, um, sound. It's spotted with feelgood jam-band dynamics and, as ever, Dainis' silver-linings worldview.

I just love how this sounds. I know that seems a ridiculous statement but I mean to say that even though this song is fantastic, it’s the recording qualities that have me stuck here. A nostalgic lo-fi energy and it works.
