Go Ape! presents 3 tip top pop acts!
London 5-piece Cosines "have found the magic formula that indie pop has been dreaming of – a winning combination of Pulp and Belle & Sebastian, seasoned with swathes of Stereolab" - The Quietus.
Named after Carole King’s 60's Doo Wop backing group (and apparently not the tangent counterpart), Cosines deliver a lovely fusion of tunes blurring guitars with retro synth sounds.
The Sunday Times describe them as “a cool and mannered (but not overmannered) exploration of a musical world bordered by Stereolab, Blondie, Saint Etienne, Belle and Sebastian and a band your mates formed at school that you wish you were in.”
As a band Cosines are constantly trying to find the perfect meeting point between clean synths and fuzz guitars. Though their lineage and history presents them as Indie Pop, they bring in elements of New Wave, avant-garde 60’s pop and synthentic Krautpop to the mix, creating a sound all of their own.
Following two well-received singles, including the sold-out 'Hey Sailor Boy!', and an appearance at this year's Indietracks festival in Derbyshire, the band have just released their debut album 'Oscillations' on Fika recordings. Listen to all their releases at www.cosines.bandcamp.com

FIRE ISLAND PINES
Indie 6-piece from Wadebridge in Cornwall with jangly guitars and top trumpets! Intricate woven melodies with a shy sensitivity that harks back to the days of Postcard records.
"Fire Island Pines clearly know their Smiths, Pulp and Felt" said Sweeping The Nation blog, and who can argue with that?
Debut album 'True Grit' has just been released on Berlin label Firestation Records. And ahead of playing at this year's Berlin Popfest in September, the boys will play a warm-up show for the lucky people of Bristol!

Kristofski Kabuki is a solo electro-pop genius, armed with 8-bit tunes and outrageously loud costumes (as a child, Kris once dressed as an orange in a Summer Fair fancy dress competition).
When asked how best to describe his music, someone once said "it sounds like the by-product of the Pet Shop Boys, Mark Almond and Erasure having a heavy session of Super Mario Kart”. Kris is also influenced by outsider artists such as San Francisco's Kevin Blechdom.
Debut album 'How To Look Good Naked' includes synth-pop cover versions of the classic 'Christmas Wrapping' by The Waitresses and Meatloaf's 'I Would Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Do That)', along with such self-penned anthems as '(She Was My Best Friend) Now She's a Young Lib Dem'.
