Cosines at Innocent Words

This two-song 7-inch from London’s synth-heavy five-piece is a perfect calling card for those who have never heard the band. Side A’s “Commuter Love” is a feedback drenched, garage pop number, with a nod to bands like The Black Keys, while the flip side, “Disclosed Stories,” is a bright, bouncy ditty, complete with trumpet, that sounds like it could have easily been pilfered from an old Depeche Mode or Yaz record (though the music on “Disclosed Stories” is a nice cover for the slightly darker lyrics here).

The opposing sounds of the songs here do a great service showcasing the band’s depth. With just two songs, the band offers up a long look at their motley influences.
