‘That beat doesn't quit. The soul doesn't either’ – JJJ

‘Colorful, hypnotizing and rebellious’ – Kick Kick Snare


Cool Explosions are a brand new, independent three-piece from Melbourne. Fronted by the electrifying, soul drenched new vocalist Elle Young, Cool Explosions feature Matty Vehl (Bombay Royale) on sequencing & synths, and the cartwheeling jazz-fire of drummer Alex Roper. Fractal, sample driven beats, analog synths & 3-part harmony singing combine with plunging proto-techno head jams in this mesmerising new outfit.


Cool Explosions debut single ‘Cold Fire’ was premiered by LA based blog Kick Kick Snare. Following exciting radio response, the band was invited to Sydney by FBI Dj Jack Shit to play the curated club night Tokyo Sing Song and by the Now.Here.This organisers to perform at the Toff in Town's regular showcase event. Shortly thereafter, Cool Explosions launched the 'Cold Fire' single at Boney in April, 2017.


The band released their 2nd single - again independently - at The Workers Club in September 2017. The group rounded out 2017 with support performances at Melbourne venues The Gasometer, The Evelyn and The Grace Darling. In January 2018, Cool Explosions headlined their own residency upstairs at The Gasometer, and in February were invited to perform on the Glenlyon St stage at the Sydney Rd Street Party as part of the Brunswick Music Festival. 


The band completed production of their debut EP in April 2018. The EP is mixed by Nick Herrera, whose engineering, production and mixing credits include Haitus Koyote and Nai Palm's solo lp. The Cool Explosions debut EP is pegged for early 2019.
