A total mix of some of my favorite artists- Kurt Vile, Mac Demarco, HOMESHAKE, and Frank Ocean, this 18-year old multi-instrumentalist out of Peckham, London is just a regular kid that skates, paints, makes cool music, and has absolutely blown my mind with his eclectic mix of indie and r&b. His voice, hip urban style, and lyrical influences are 100% unique to him. The biggest thing that I look for when listening to new artists are original lyrics that aren’t cliche or heard before and Cosmo Pyke brings something new to the table in all of his tunes. If you wanna hear some groovy stuff listen to the tracks below:
Favorite Tunes off of ‘Just Cosmo’
Track #2- Chronic Sunshine
Track #4- Social Sites
Track #5- Great Dane
In an interview with Independent UK, Cosmo mentioned that he grew up listening to reggae, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Dylan, and Micheal Jackson (you can really hear the reggae influence in Chronic Sunshine). Just from listening to his music and interview, you know that the things that influence his writing are completely genuine and real.
Cool Fact: He sampled his mom and a clip from “Just William” that reminds him of his childhood on the track ‘Great Dane’ on his EP.
