The LA songwriter takes us through his Primavera Sound 2019 must-sees.
LA songwriter Cuco’s bedroom pop is all the buzz atm. After dropping “Hydrocodone” earlier this year, the hazy track follows Cuco dealing with the aftermath of suffering a huge car crash he and his band were involved in last year and how that’s affected his view on mortality. The first song from his upcoming debut album, it’s a candid, compelling and crisp offering that will pull on the harshest of heartstrings.
Set to head over to sunny Barcelona to wow at this year’s Primavera Sound festival next week, we got Cuco – real name Omar Banos – to take us through who he’s looking forward to seeing. See ya at the front, yeah?
Stereolab – “The Flower Called Nowhere”
This is one of the first Stereolab songs I heard, melodies are insane.
Pond – “Moth Wings”
Beard, Wives, Denim is one of my favorite albums and Moth Wings has such a sick baseline.
