French Post-Noise Quartet COSSE Announce April/May 2023 UK Tour Dates Paris Band’s Debut Album It Turns Pale Out Now via NMAS

Paris, France post-noise quartet Cosse are delighted to announce a run of April/May 2023 UK headline tour dates as part of their spring EU live schedule. To give fans a taste of what to expect from their live show, the band have released a live session video for their track ‘Tangerine’, a deep cut from their debut album It Turns Pale which is out now via NMAS. Commenting on the track, the band say: “This is the first part of a diptych live session. ‘Tangerine’ is an electric and tense song. We wanted to show off the part of the album that reflects our post punk influences, mixed with the colours we love from post rock. We also wanted to showcase our new lineup with this live session and highlight Benoit (Quentin, bass), who recently joined the band, but has already found his place and is deeply influencing our way of playing.”

Oscillating between lush post-rock and noise, Cosse deal in intertwining harmonies and flowing magma-like rivers of feedback that swallow the listener in their dense cloud. Packed with the echoes of raw vocals—which, when not chanting, are whispering—their music has an inherent sensibility and a shocking fragility. Influences including Girl Band, Slint and Sonic Youth are obviously close at hand, making the quartet a band who, if you listen carefully, will leave you deeply moved. The four piece released their debut EP Nothing Belongs to Anything in 2020 via French independent labels À Tant Rêver du Roi and Grabuge Records, and they’ve since shared the stage with Lysistrata, Mothers, Bruit, GGGOLDDD, and Chiyoda Ku, as well as appearing at Hellfest 2021. Their ambitious debut album It Turns Pale was recorded at Katzwijm Studio in the Netherlands under the guidance of their long-term producer Floyd Atema, a central figure of Holland’s current powerful and inspired post-rock/noise scene.
