cowboyy have released their debut EP, ‘Epic The Movie’.
Out today (Friday, 10th March) via Nice Swan Records, it comes hot on the heels of their addition to Dork’s Night Out on 24th March at London’s legendary 100 Club, which also features Fat Dog and Butch Kassidy.
Of one of the new tracks, ‘Plastic’, the band’s Stanley Powell explains: “I wanted to show my 60s pop influences in the song’s production, (working with good friend and producer David Evans) adding piano, vibra slap, glockenspiel and vocal BV harmonies. The riff came from a random demo I had on my SoundCloud that I worked up into a song after deciding to drop one of the tracks that we had recorded amongst the rest of the EP months before.”
He continues, “The lyrics are obviously about micro plastics but are more of a commentary on 20th century living rather than exclusively environmental. Lyrics like ‘a generation born too early for new worlds but too late for new land’ are a poke at the current point in humanity we live in. Referencing micro plastics found in humans and fish due to pollution rather than exploration and discovery. I’m sure we will progress into another age of discovery and wonder as a race, but right now we’re just filling the world with plastic.”
