Australia’s favourite eclectic powerhouses Cosmo’s Midnight today team up with New Zealand’s own master of alternative-R&B, Matthew Young, for new single “It’s Love”, out via Sony Music Australia, RCA Records USA & Black Butter Records UK.
A raw gaze upon the ins and outs of love, Cosmo’s Midnight draw on their finest beat-making with Young at the vocal helm, who unleashes honeyed words over hip-swinging rhythms. Guitar riffs match flicks of bass, while synths hypnotised in groove and a soul-saturated falsetto bloom together in a deluxe chorus to complete the spell. Premiered on triple j's Good Nights, Young’s smooth R&B meets with the duo’s unmistakable sonic touch as if friends from a past life, drawn to meet again.
Matthew Young returns this year on the latest track, following a huge 2018 with the release of his highly-praised EP Fruit and his first Australian tour. Previously, he’s also supported Lorde on her Melodrama Tour in New Zealand, and appeared at the Laneway Presents ARIA week showcase.
The boys are in the midst of an Asian tour, before diving into the summer season with upcoming sets at Falls Festival Byron Bay and Party in the Paddock in 2020. As the pair’s fanbase has grown so has their ability to bend between new eras, genres and production with ease, “It’s Love” marking yet another exciting turn that gets better with each listen.
