COOL EXPLOSIONS : NEW SINGLE ‘GLASS JARS’
'Glass Jars' is the brand new single from Melbourne-based cyber-soul 3 piece Cool Explosions. The single releases worldwide digitally on Friday 22 February 2019.
"Ordered in aisles, all locked up in grids
the days are glass jars, with holes punched in the lids..."
Produced by the band's keyboardist Matty Vehl and mixed by Nick Herrera (Haitus Kaiyote; Nai Palm), 'Glass Jars' is the second single from the upcoming, debut self-titled Cool Explosions album, releasing Thursday 14 March 2019.
From the outset, 'Glass Jars' catapults into a citadel of frenzied samples and involuntary 8-bit outbursts. Immediately we are aware of our new surrounds – the beat is a driving insurgency of trip hop neurosis, punctuated with bolts of restless step-sequencing. Amidst tumbling whorls of synths, lead singer Elle Young's vocal delivery keens and beguiles with an effortless, nascent soul. 'Glass Jars' is a gasp of frayed agitation, frantically eyeing for an exit, and its blood is most definitely up.
The accompanying music video is a dance solo by acclaimed, Belgium-based contemporary-classical dancer Juliet Burnett – currently a principal dancer with Ballet Vlaanderen under Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (known for choreographing the Beyonce / Jay-Z video 'Apeshit').
Cool Explosions launch the strictly limited 12" vinyl format of the release at The Toff In Town, Sat 30 March, with support from Niine and Louise Terra.
