ACTRESE is set to release 'COSMO', her new smash single which will be available globally on 5th February. 'COSMO' was written by ACTRESE with the help of a rising songwriter and producer – Jamie Amos (his credits include Nilufer Yanya, Tom Grennan and James Morrison) who also produced the track alongside Tom Quigley – a fresh talent in the production world.
London based pop visionary is ready to take on the world with hypnotic and synth – driven electro – pop tune accompanied by her compelling and sultry vocals. 'COSMO' features incredibly catchy hooks and beats which are a force to be reckoned with. The candid and somewhat sad lyrics are backed by '80s – style electro – pop instrumentals and piano transitions that make for an insistent listen. By blending the experimental pop with the '80s – infused dance music, ACTRESE has skillfully crafted a distinctive sound. The track is dynamic and powered by pulsating disco beats which mirror the whirl of intense feelings while she sings 'When he whispered that he loved / Could he possibly have lied?'. 'COSMO' brings you a pure escapism and glitter ball energy which, beware, will make you want to pour a Cosmo into a glass and dance all your blues away!
ACTRESE is the next generation pop/indie frontwoman who cleverly describes her sound as 'sexy envisionment of reality'. She's the living embodiment of a teenage fantasy and has been compared to the sounds of MØ, Lykke Li. She is a breath of fresh air in music today – looking forwards while reaching down to her roots. Her previous single was featured on a variety of Spotify curated playlists (Spotify's New Music, Fresh Finds). Drawing influence from artists such as The Weeknd, The xx, Dua Lipa, ACTRESE creates atmospheric and daydreamy melodies with sultry vocals.
'COSMO is about doing your best and being served bitter reality, still loving someone and thinking you might actually love someone else again, the contrast between what you get and what you thought you deserved.'
