Single Review: Cosmo Pyke – “Chronic Sunshine”

Cosmo Pyke’s latest single “Chronic Sunshine” is an elegant example of his talented musical abilities.

Having recently left world-famous BRIT School, the multi-instrumentalist from Peckham is slowly creating a promising musical career. Just last year Pyke supported Jaws upon a nationwide tour, and is soon to embark upon a tour of his own which culminates at south east London’s famous Montague Arms.

“Chronic Sunshine” builds upon a creative, spacey sound in which Pyke is known for. His jazz/ neo-soul influences are obvious within the song through its echoed use of guitar and obvious bass-line. Lyrically, the single cleverly introduces a sense of nostalgic relaxation, it ideally should be listened to on the laziest of Sunday afternoons or after the most chaotic of club nights.

A regular in the London music scene, Cosmo Pyke is also prominent in the modelling industry, perhaps known for being cast in Frank Ocean’s “Nikes” video. However, it is his musical ability which is most impressive, his previous release “Social Sites” also received huge praise within the media and fans alike.

“Chronic Sunshine” provides the perfect starting point for a new listener, his sound is resemblant of a hybrid between King Krule and Mac Demarco.

For an 18 year old, Cosmo Pyke’s sound is incredibly mature, well developed and effective. Resultantly, one can only assume that his meteoric potential is entirely assured.
