HELLO COSMOS REVEAL PSYCHEDELIC NEW VIDEO FOR: ‘FREQUENCY FIELDS’ WATCH HERE
RUN FOR PRESIDENT EP, OUT NOW ON COSMIC GLUE
Following the release of their Run For President EP on Independence Day, HELLO COSMOS have now unveiled a striking animated video to accompany the latest single to be cut from it: ‘Frequency Fields’.
As with previous single ‘Run For President’, the ‘Frequency Fields’ video sees the band once again teaming up with extraordinary Ukrainian visual artist VidsInvader.
A master of visual cut and paste, VidsInvader’s artistic approach sees him scan the library of the internet for creative clips that match the energy, lyrics, style and journey to the music. In what is VidsInvader’s sixth collaboration with Hello Cosmos, the ‘Frequency Fields’ video takes the viewer through a psychedelic wormhole of seamlessly woven animations and sensory overloading FX.
Hallmarked with the transformative soundscapes and star-scudding sonic ingenuities that definitively blueprint the output of this Manchester collective, BBC6 Music’s Chris Hawkins, recently hailed ‘Frequency Fields’ saying: “[There’s] Something addictive about the lead-singer’s voice. A band who go big on statement and protest. A rabble rouser with lovely poppy harmonies that temper the anger.”
Taking in the astral plane straddling psychedelia of the 60s, the low slung baggy-fied rhythms of the Mondays and the punch packing post-punk clout of the Fall, ‘Frequency Fields’ intercepts the disparate messages of trailblazers aeons past and re-routes them into a explosive new transmission of their own design.
Speaking about the divine inspiration that led to ‘Frequency Fields’ creation, frontman Ben Robinson said of the track:
‘I wrote the lyrics while on a tour of the sistine chapel listening to Lost Colours, wasn’t too popular with the tour guide with my headphones on all the way round… There’s also noises we recorded from an app on my phone that simulated classic Nintendo games power ups!’
Hello Cosmos is the experimental collaborative project launched by award-winning founder of Bluedot and KendalCalling UK music festivals,Ben Robinson. Though the project now spans over 50 collaborators, new single ‘Frequency Fields’ only features three players; Ben himself, plus brother Simon Robinson and brother in-law Stephen Hewitt.
‘Frequency Fields’ features on the band’s latest release, the Run For President EP, a collection recently praised by God Is In The TV as: “a set of songs that.. excite, delight and bode well for future endeavours. Highly recommended!”.
The EP features a huge collection of outsider musicians, many from the thriving Leeds scene, with guests including Girl Sweat, James Smith (Post War Glamour Girls & Cruel World), Emma Mason (Galaxians & Lost Colours), Angela Chan (Lanterns on the Lake & Tomorrow We Sail) & Jack Simpson (Hyde Park Book Club) plus production and mixing at Greenmount Studios courtesy of Jamie Lockheart (Mye Mi), Rob Slater & Lee Smith. A remix by the infamous producer extraordinaire Jagz Kooner (Sabers Of Paradise), also proves to be an irresistible bonus. Jagz is renowned for production work with Primal Scream (Swastika Eyes), Bjork, The Prodigy & The Chemical Brothers plus his crossover remixes for Oasis, Kasabian, Soulwax & many more.
Plugged directly into the Radio Clash antenna, Manchester collective Hello Cosmos will continue their sonic bombardment with another post-punk and indie-dance assault on the senses and consciousness. Half dreamy yearning, half volatile, scattergun narration, lead vocalist Ben Robinson sets out a blueprint of progressive commentary on the Run For President EP.
