Self titled DEBUT ALBUM
Inter-dimensional cyber-soul 3-piece Cool Explosions release their eagerly anticipated, debut self titled mini-Album, on 14 March 2019.
Spectral, hypnotic and rebellious, Cool Explosions is at turns visitational and visceral. Behind the album’s curtain of glitch scored synth-pop, a plunging virtual soul flashes at the heart of the release.
The record is a compelling showcase of the emerging songwriting duo Vehl/Young - the group's electrifying vocalist Elle Young and keyboardist Matty Vehl. Produced by Matty Vehl (known for his keyboard work with Bombay Royale), the trio is rounded out with rising drum star, Alex Roper. The album is mixed by Nick Herrera (Nai Palm / Haitus Kaiyote), and mastered by Lachlan Carrick.
Self confessed ‘ultra pop’ adherents, the band was born out of a mutual admiration of RnB and Soul music; Etta James, Irma Thomas and obscure Little Richard antipodean tour folklore. Somehow, the group found themselves surrounded with a veritable phalanx of analog synths, and a sound that owes as much to proto-techno pioneers Klaus Schulz and Georgio Moroder as it does to Melbourne’s current future/digi-soul renaissance.
The album's second and most recent single 'Glass Jars' is accompanied by a music video created by director/cinematographer Sasha Whitehouse. Premiered via NY based blog Big Shot Magazine, the clip is a stunning, solo dance tour de force choreographed and performed by classical-contemporary dance bad-ass Juliet Burnett. Previously principal dancer with the Australian Ballet, Burnett is now based in Belgium, where she is currently principal dancer with the prestigious Ballet Vlaanderen under Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (known for choreographing the Beyonce / Jay-Z video 'Apeshit').
The ‘Cool Explosions’ mini-album is released digitally worldwide on Thursday 14 March, and is available on strictly limited 12” vinyl format direct from the artist.
