Cool Sounds’ usual jangle-pop sparkle has been supercharged by a disco-glam stomp on Like That, making for their most immediate record yet. Like That finds a bright pop-funk sweet spot between Ian Dury & the Blockheads, Hot Chip and 80s Francois K mixes.
The album’s singles Hello, Alright, You Got That?, 6 Or 7 More and title track Like That have had airplay on BBC 6 Music, and praise from the Guardian (UK), Evening Standard (UK), Radio France, NME Australia, Brooklyn Vegan (US), Raven Sings the Blues (US) and more.

Cool Sounds’ pop polymath Dainis Lacey plays almost everything on the record, with just a little help from his friends. Live though, the band is a six headed beast capable of fulfilling all the funky promise of the new album.
