Cool Sounds - The Beat

Cool Sounds - The Beat
Cool Sounds are a seven-piece Melbourne indie / guitar-pop outfit, notable for their clean instrumental interplay, melodic lines and earnest delivery. Lead by Dainis Lacey, whose falsetto makes the band instantly recognisable, the band have previously released LP "Dance Moves" and EP "Gristle" to critical acclaim and packed club shows. With the announcement of their new record "Cactus Country" for late October, the band are set to continue their output of neat, un-ashamed songs featuring twangy guitars and counter-balanced melodies, all with a 70s soft rock leaning.

About this track...

A builder, the intro sees front-man Dainis Lacey setting the scene - the dread at seeing an old acquaintance - before the full band kicks in with swagger.
Using slide-guitar, 80s prom synths & a plucky, McCartney-esque bass, the sax refrain elevates the whole feel - repetition aimed at a Krautrock vibe, all framed in an alt-country, 70s soft-rock atmosphere.
