LET LOVE BE THE ISLAND UPON WHICH WE STAND
A collaboration with BBC R1 / 6Music celebrated vocalist Jordan Hodson (Tallsaint / Loux), ‘Let Love Be’ is a dizzying assault on the senses with Chemical Brothers-esque electro-clash beats.
Hauling together its constituent parts, from Ben’s repetitive vocal line to the Weatherall-wavelength riding sonics, Cosmos comrade Joe Thompson welded each into the chugging juggernaut we hear today. With a final fit-out at the legendary Greenmount studios, the full version is a mesmeric 5+ minute wig-out which I can be heard in its full glory on a forthcoming EP entitled: ‘Let Love Be the Island Upon Which We Stand’ set for release this Winter.
Immediately following the band’s ‘Run For President’ EP (released Summer 2019), the upcoming 4-track release will include new material ‘Let Love Be…’ and ‘Shores Of Mankind’, plus two stimulating remixes courtesy of Joe Thompson and Richard Norris (Beyond the Wizards Sleeve, Circle Sky). It takes a more electronic footing than the previous release but blisters with the same melting-pot of influences approach that’s defined their style.
Let Love Be The Island Upon Which We Stand - “A song about unification and love that could soundtrack the count-down to Armageddon… An epic end of the world cry for hope.” Chris Hawkins, BBC Radio 6 Music
