Australia’s beloved twins Cosmo’s Midnight have enjoyed a massive year both here and abroad. Their North American tour was littered with sell-out stops at iconic venues like The Roxy and Rough Trade, their shows here on home turf were bigger and better than ever before, they inked a landmark deal with the legendary RCA Records, and their single “History” is currently the most played song on triple j so far this year. Basically, Pat and Cosmo are killing it like never before, and with even bigger plans in the pipeline for this year, the only way is up for these progressive young producers.
Today, the boys have celebrated their birthdays by revealing some of those tasty 2017 plans. Firstly, we’ve been handed down a brand new tuna that has the potential to follow in the footsteps of “History” and blitz radio and streaming charts all over the shop. Featuring emerging Brighton outfit Kudu Blue, “Mind Off” kicks up the tempo a notch and packs on the sprightly vocal hooks, bouncy synths and effortless pop transitions. I don’t know if these guys have ever dropped a bad tune, so it doesn’t come as much of a surprise that this is yet another winner.
On top of that, the boys have also penciled in a full world tour after their set at Splendour In The Grass that will see them play in Korea, China, Singapore, Indonesia and across the US. You can catch all the info for that below.
