Cosmo Calling - Wait for the Rain
‘Very promising piece for those wanting more from their Indie tunes this year’ – Laura McCarthy (Distorted Sound)
‘A force to be reckoned with’ – Even the Stars
‘Undeniably individual’ – Fuse News
'Wait for the Rain' will be released on April 20th 2018 through Scruff of the Neck.
A hugely exciting male/female-fronted quintet, Cosmo Calling met at university in Manchester and after nights spent diving headfirst in to their new city’s music scene, the inevitable happened and the band began to take shape. Taking influence from the visceral likes of Queens of the Stone Age and combining it with the pop sensibilities of Haim, the five-piece quickly found favour both in Manchester, and further afield.
Coming quickly of the back of the band’s most recent single ‘Cry Baby Cry’, ‘Wait for the Rain’ is the latest release from the Manchester-based five-piece. Taking a more groove-laden and frenetic approach than its predecessor, while packing no less of a punch, ‘Wait for the Rain’ manages to feel both blistering and nuanced, and is yet another release to set Cosmo Calling apart from their contemporaries.
Adopting a heavy gigging schedule, the five-piece have gone from city to city turning heads and impressing every audience they held regardless of size. It’s a feat that stems from the band’s charismatic front duo, Harry Preen and Phoebe Taylor, who use their disparate tones to create infectious melodies that effortlessly cut through the thunderous rhythm section of Darragh Burke, Tom Chapman and Gabriel Alexander.
Having developed a strong local following in Manchester, Cosmo Calling have packed out some of city’s top venues including Soup Kitchen and Night & Day, and most recently played at Gorilla, an iconic 550 capacity venue nestled under a viaduct just off Oxford Road.
Now working closely with Scruff of the Neck, Cosmo Calling have built on their early promise, developed the sound that piqued the interest of so many, and have fast become one of Manchester’s must-see bands.
