Cosmo Sheldrake

Monday, April 21, 2014 | by Caitie Tieman

Banjos, whistles, and loop machines, OH MY! Behold the beautiful eccentricity of British multi-instrumentalist Cosmo Sheldrake. Quirky and whimsical, his debut single 'The Moss' combines elements of pastoral ballads and smoother electronic grooves and instances of classic R&B harmony, all for a resulting track that is truly distinctive. While his approach reminds me of Andrew Bird (whom, if you are not familiar with, I recommend checking out IMMEDIATELY), Cosmo's sound is very different and quite refreshing. Diverting from a career in soundtracks and choir instruction, I'm now very curious to see where else Cosmo can and will go.
