Product Description

Limited edition 12” vinyl album (500 copies) includes mp3 download. Limited edition CD album in handpainted sleeve (200 numbered copies). ‘Oscillations’ is the debut album from London’s Cosines, and charts the ups and downs, the instability of relationships, misguided hook-ups and ‘subsequent break-ups. The matter-of-fact blunt Yorkshire stylings of songwriter Alice Hubley’s lyrics tell it like it is, and the resulting tone is one of relief more than sadness. Simon Nelson’s songwriting contributions to the album – Lookout Mountain Drive and Stalemate - compliment Hubley’s songs perfectly and bring a second perspective to the scene. Peppered with luscious synth tones this is music for modern happy robots. The album was recorded and produced by the band in Wood Green at Simon’s own Klank Studio, using a variety of instruments and electronic trickery including marimba, autoharp, theremin and cranky old Moog and Roland synths. The album features guest turns from spiritual members Gabe Saucedo (Still Flyin’, Red Pony Clock) and Gary Olson (The Ladybug Transistor), who phoned in their recordings from across the pond. As a band Cosines are constantly trying to find the perfect meeting point between clean synths and fuzz guitars. Though their lineage and history presents them as indie pop, they bring new wave, avant-garde 60’s pop and synthentic Krautpop to the mix, creating a sound all their own. A brilliant mélange of the likes of Love, United States of America and Stereolab.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By Peter Hill on 13 April 2015
Format: Audio CD
The promo blurb with this fine CD states they are "marshmallow fed, mathematically inclined indie pop". A bit of a mouthful but probably fairly apt. They reminded me of a cross between Stereolab, Pulp & Kraftwerk but in a good way.
Alice sings (well almost just talks) on most of the tracks with a very precise style but quite endearing in many ways. There are a couple of good male vocal tracks too. It's synth heavy but there are also a few guitar flourishes included.
The first two or three tracks are ultra catchy with 'nothing more than a feeling' being the highlight but a couple of the later tracks don't quite work for me but overall very enjoyable indie-pop.
