With his Cuban heels and wide lapelled suits Cosmic Crooner exudes the sort of absurdist suave exclusive to the most ice cool of 70s rock star revivalists. Plucking inspiration from doowop icons The Ronettes, glam-rockers Lemon Twigs plus the transcendent creations of Weyes Blood, the new single ‘Spoiler Alert’ sees Cosmic Crooner dissecting the annoyances of 21st century pop. Throughout the track Crooner navigates nostalgia and the endless stream of information surrounding him as he waltzes through this modern 60s pop classic.
An ode to vintage psychedelia, his debut album, the curiously titled 'The Perks of Being a Hypocrite' out March 17th draws influences from classic doowop, legends like Frank Sinatra and Lou Reed plus iconic 60s/70s European film scores, especially those of French Nouvelle Vague hero Jean-Luc Godard.
'The Perks of Being a Hypocrite' is a merit to the artistry Cosmic Crooner has built for himself over the last couple of years. By taking notes from an array of songwriting legends; Ennio Morricone, The Beatles, Marvin Gaye and Caetano Veloso, Crooner has created a beautifully arranged body of work that is filled largely by his own observations judged by emotions.
Speaking about the new single, he added, "I’d describe Cosmic Crooner as an emotional observative hedonistic joker,” says Crooner. “I think every song touches upon different themes and has different topics. However the most important message for me with these songs is to always look for inspiration. I hope in some kind of way this album serves as an inspiration for people who listen to it.”
Cosmic Crooner’s witty musicalities offer all the hallmarks of a classic songwriter in the making. Since releasing his debut single “Deep Down in Jazz” in 2021, he has since put forward a string of swoon-worthy tracks that have helped gain him critical acclaim and build a cult fan following across Europe. He’ll soon take centre stage at Groningen’s Eurosonic Noorderslag in January 2023 to offer up a varying palette of sonic natures in a live setting, before crooning his way to a city near you sometime very soon.
