Approved: Hello Cosmos

Hello Cosmos

Hello Cosmos continue their run of increasingly good singles with ‘Let Love Be The Island On Which We Stand’. Led by Kendall Calling and Bluedot Festival founder Ben Robinson, the band made their first tentative steps last year, really cementing their status earlier this summer with the excellent ‘Run For President’.

Featuring a more electronic sound than the post-punk of other releases, built from loops made during early recording sessions, the new track features lead vocals from Jordan Hodson. As the track grows in intensity, Robinson’s vocals then battle their way to the front.

“The song title of ‘Let Love Be The Island On Which We Stand’ was originally written on my honeymoon about my better half, Dr Roxy”, says Robinson. “But it seems to have taken on a potent message in the current climate. The guest vocal is by Jordan Hodson, it’s our first time working together but hopefully not the last. She has a really versatile range which is rare to find”.

‘Let Love Be The Island On Which We Stand’ is the first track taken from the band’s second EP, set for release later this year. You can catch them live at Manchester’s Soup Kitchen on 31 Oct. Listen to ‘Let Love Be The Island On Which We Stand’ here:
