LA’s Peaking Lights are set to release ‘Cosmic Logic’, their new studio album, on October 7th in North America. They’ve already shared first single “Breakdown” and today follow that song with another cut from the record entitled
“Everyone and Us.”
Vivid, nocturnal, the eleven pop songs of Cosmic Logic follow 2012’s Lucifer and are another progression in the band’s free-wheeling, far-reaching production and mantra-like songwriting pushing into brighter, bolder spaces than ever before.
It’s a record where a loving homage to ‘Der Song von Mandelay’ – the first song on The Flying Lizards’ debut album (opening track “Infinite Trips”), The Carpenters re-interpretation of 70’s prog rockers Klaatu (the interplanetary groove of “Telephone Call”) and the deliriously catchy digi-dub of lead single “Breakdown” all coalesce with elements of Jamaican digital dancehall, Cosmic Italo, Chicago house and acid house, Afrobeat and Zamrock, early west coast hip-hop and disco boogie crossover into something both instantly recognisable and delightfully alien. Looking both to other cultures and the cosmos for inspiration, Cosmic Logic is a record that searches – a beacon in dark times.
