On 21 April, paradYse Records present the debut single by 24 year-old London-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Cosmo Sheldrake. Cosmo Sheldrake’s debut single is titled The Moss.
Cosmo Sheldrake described The Moss as: “An ode to nonsense for its own sake”. Invoking many of the classic figures of nonsense literature, Cosmo Sheldrake embarks on a peg-legged jaunt, draping finely woven vocal harmonies over an underbelly of electronics, strings and an Armenian Duduk (recorded at a folk session in a country pub in East Sussex).
Over the past year Cosmo Sheldrake has composed music for film and theatre as well as touring internationally supporting and playing with Johnny Flynn and the Sussex Wit. In the UK he has shared stages with Bombay Bicycle Club and US indie act Mutual Benefit.
Cosmo Sheldrake is touring the UK and Europe in April. You can catch him live on the following dates:
23 Apr – Sebright Arms, London (single launch) (tickets)
24 Apr – The Green Door Store, Brighton (tickets)
