TRACK OF THE WEEK | COOL SOUNDS – ‘IN BLUE SKIES’
The dreamboats from Cool Sounds have finally returned with the charming new single, ‘In Blue Skies’ and an intricate, romantic video clip to accompany. The Melbourne band have been kicking around the scene for a while now, first capturing our attention with the release of their mini LP, Healing Crystals and the follow up single, ‘Control’. Their latest release, which is set to feature on upcoming LP, Dance Moves, is a laid back, lush, piece of work centred around the unique vocals of lead man Dainis Lacey and guest vocalist Sara Retallick (Palm Springs, Jimmy Tait, Golden Syrup. There are so many subtle transitions in this song, with saxophones and nylon string guitars (LOVE that solo) creeping in beneath a sea of mellow reverb. Clocking in at just over three minutes, it’s a short and floating track that showcases a softer side to Cool Sounds.
The video clip is also a spectacle in itself. I’m not even going to try and decipher it, just watch for yourself and enjoy!
