Cosmics is a band located in Northern San Diego that possesses a very natural, cohesive sound. Although their newest EP titled FRIENDS is only three tracks spanning the length of about eight minutes, I was very satisfied from beginning to end.
FRIENDS is a very romantic collection of music, and it seemed to sonically embody the honeymoon phase of a relationship. It reeks of pleasant emotion combined with blissful interactions. To be honest, I wish it were longer so I could gain a more comprehensive grasp on the band and their sound, but what I was supplied with was sufficient to say that Cosmics has the type of band chemistry that makes creating music sound easy.
Musically speaking, the EP is very quaint. The guitar lines on the album are consistently clean, serving as the backbone for the vocals to explore themselves over. Speaking of vocals, Logan Swirsky possesses a lovely, warm voice with a certain quirkiness that fits the mood of the music perfectly. Additionally, the drumming is very solid as well, bringing everything together very nicely.
Finally, the production was very good, too. The instruments sounded great, and the vocals sounded superb. I really enjoyed the guitar effects toward the beginning of the first track “Support” and how it supplied a sense of ambiguity before plunging into a blatantly amorous tune.
I certainly look forward to hearing what Cosmics puts out in the future, as I feel that FRIENDS is just the start, and felt to me to be simply a tease of what is to come.
