Cosmo Sheldrake releases Hocking EP, shares live video

Today marks the release of the new Cosmo Sheldrake EP, Hocking! We are so excited to have this out in the world for you to hear. The EP includes a brand-new mix of the title track from MIA and Glass Animals collaborator Neil Comber.

Alongside the EP, we have a very special live video of Cosmo performing Hocking at his sold-out Village Underground date earlier this year. The performance finds Cosmo at his most enthralling, improvising throughout, and joined by a brass band.

Discussing Hocking, Cosmo said "I made ‘Hocking’ at a time when I was interested in a style of singing called hocketing, a technique that splits up melodies and shares them across several voices. During this period I bought my first synthesiser, and ‘Hocking’ emerged from my first experimentations. The song is concerned with the loss of hedgerows and British wildlife among other things. The track ends with a recording of a raucous marching band, in part inspired by the time I spend in New Orleans while writing the album."

Lsten to the full EP here, and watch the live performance below.

Catch Cosmo on his upcoming UK/EU tour, including a headline show at London’s EartH. Tickets for all shows can be found here.
