Cosmo & Creature’s Breakthrough

cosmos-creature

Cosmos & Creature is a band I was immediately hooked on. Their music is catchy and vocals have an excellent balance. This band will have you dancing any and everywhere.

Rob: How did you decide on your name?

Cosmos & Creature: We were looking up at the sky and contemplating our place as human beings in the universe. We’re fascinated by the vastness of space & the complexity of the human condition, and how they affect one another. This is our favorite topic of discussion most days.

Rob: What is your new song “Young” about?

Cosmos & Creature: Young is a culmination of what we’ve learned from our pasts and what we hope to project for the future. It’s a song about growing up and how scary and exciting it is to still live with childish wonder.

Rob: Is there an EP or full length in the works?

Cosmos & Creature: Yes, we have a couple songs finished and are in route to New York to wrap up the first body of work.

Rob: How did the band begin?

Cosmos & Creature: We started writing at the tail end of 2014; we wrote “Young” in the fall of 2015. We spent the last year developing our music. Our first few features as Cosmos & Creature released earlier this year with Vicetone’s “Bright Side” and Lost Kings “Marathon”.

Which artists have influenced you?

Cosmos & Creature: We’re inspired by the 90s era of alternative pop music with groups close to our hearts like Oasis, Third Eye Blind, No Doubt & Coldplay. We’re fascinated by the great songwriting duos like The Carpenters, Simon & Garfunkel, & Hall & Oats. Our current influences are very eclectic, we both just love acts that are putting out authentic vibrations- Banks, Jon Bellion, Local Natives, Bon Iver, and One Republic to name a few.

Rob: What is your songwriting process?

Cosmos & Creature: We write every single day. There’s actually a running collection of joke songs we’ve written while driving. Ha ha… But to be honest, the writing process varies depending on where we are when it’s happening. We’ve developed a lot of the songs in our apartment in Toluca Lake, CA. Lately we’ve been working with two producers in a studio up in Mt. Kisco, New York.

Rob: At what age did you start making music?

Cosmos & Creature: We both grew up in musical households and fell into it at a very young age. We knew we wanted to make music forever around the age of 7 but started writing real songs around 13 and performing in high school.

Rob: What is your average day?

Cosmos & Creature: We wake up and send 100 emails, take a walk to our favorite coffee spot in North Hollywood, hit the steam room and meditate, go back home and work on music. Thankfully we have a family member that’s a chiropractor and we get adjusted a lot. We love to juice and also love seeing live music. We try to catch as many shows in a week as we can.
