Los Colognes Releases New Track
“Molly B Good”
Third Album The Wave
out May 12th via Big Deal Music
Nashville quintet Los Colognes will release their third album The Wave on May 12th via Big Deal Media / Thirty Tigers. The band explains that the song "is about the pull between the demands of society, of cultural acceptance, and what is ultimately a higher ideal: presence within oneself and truly 'knowing' those around you." The band has a run of shows in the US, including opening slots for St. Paul and the Broken Bones and an appearance at Sasquatch Festival.
One of the highest and rarest aspirations in popular music is to reach for the transcendental, to access the spirit. On The Wave, Los Colognes succeeds at this – in breaking through the conﬁnes of everyday pop song lyricism to tell a holistic story. It’s not a concept piece, but it’s a brooding and joyful song cycle ﬁlled with philosophical rumination, effortless hooks, inspiring musicianship, and expansive arrangements. It’s an album perfectly suited of the current zeitgeist of unease and hope.
Unlike the live approach used to record the group’s previous records, The Wave was built from the ground up with attention to each part. There is a certain economy of space in the songs that feel deliberate, while never ceasing to be warm and inclusive. Guitar and keyboard lines drift off each other in between lyrical exchanges while Mortenson propels the beat, sometimes meditative, sometimes driving.
The journey to ﬁnish recording The Wave was its own quest for Rutherford and Mortenson, a more deliberate process of creation and craft that shows a band becoming fully aware of its voice and its vision. Los Colognes have given us a singular collection of quietly anthemic tunes held together by philosophical reﬂection and damn ﬁne rock and roll chops. The Wave is coming.
