On the new single and across the new album Like That, the Melbourne group Cool Sounds‘ usual jangle-pop sparkle has been supercharged by a disco-glam stomp, making for their most immediate record yet. Like That finds a bright pop-funk sweet spot between Ian Dury & the Blockheads, Hot Chip and 80s Francois K mixes. On this track you can also hear the enigmatic twitch and jerk of Talking Heads, early hip-hop and ESG through a slick and cosmic filter.
About 6 Or 7 More, Cool Sounds’ pop polymath Dainis Lacey says – “The song is about constants in life and how our relationship changes to them. You perform the same songs over and over again and realise one day, hey I’m pretty different to when I wrote this. But as long as you’re having fun it doesn’t really matter. After a while whatever meaning it originally had has gone, but maybe that’s ok? I was listening to lots of The Clash and Jessie Ware at the time.”
Like That is out 7 Oct 2022 via Chapter Music on vinyl LP and digital.
