Words: Saam Das
Chris Cookson popped up late last year in his solo guise, with the seemingly timeless 'Pillow Talk', matching majestic strings with Cookson's serene vocals. New track 'Sophia' appeared this afternoon, taking more of a shimmering, synth-based approach. Listen to both tracks below.
At times, Cookson sounds unexpectedly husky in the latest track, but it's the smoother vocal moments that we feel most engaged with - especially when joined by the hyperactive percussion and the melodramatic synth. Indeed, it's one of those rare tracks that ends before we actually want it to.
