Cousin Tony's Brand New Firebird EP, -Melbourne Bitter', is available now independently via Double Drummer Music/AWAL.
Produced by frontman Lachlan Rose and Matt Neighbour (Matt Corby, The Rubens, Courtney Barnett) at Sing Sing Studios, -Cool Parties' is another surprise left turn from a band who have proven themselves capable of nailing every new flavour they tackle. The track's jazzy guitar riff and relaxed groove build to a cathartic, unexpected climax.
'The song itself is about the sense of detachment that can sometimes wash over you whilst in social situations. The feeling that nothing occurring around you is quite authentic and the quiet desire for something more substantial. This performance was shot overlooking Edinburgh Gardens in North Fitzroy, the place where the vast majority of our socialising occurs…so there was perhaps something significant about shooting it there" says frontman Lachlan Rose.
The video was shot and directed by Steve Young, the former drummer of Cousin Tony.
