INTERVIEW: THE COSMICS

We caught up with garage punk rock trio The Cosmics for a chat ahead of their show at The Sunflower Lounge on Saturday 17th March, with The Americas, Pink Lake and P.E.T. Interview by Meg Vedder.

What are your plans for this year? Have you any festivals lined up?

We’ve got new music coming out this year and our third single will be released on 16th March, and we’ve got UK shows coming up. We are yet to confirm any announcements for festivals this summer.

What’s it like being back playing in Birmingham after your summer of festivals?

We had a dream summer but it’s nice to be back in our hometown ’cause the Birmingham crowd are our favourite.

How do you feel the scene in Birmingham is doing currently?

The Birmingham scene is alive, it’s varied and everyone gets along.

Do you feel that this feeling has been a big help for you in securing festival slots and do you feel the underground music scene needs them?

Yeah this feeling has been a big help, they are a great platform to get your music out there, there’s a good sense of community with them.

What can fans expect at your gig on the 17th?

On the 17th, expect new tunes, shamrocks and shenanigans!

THE COSMICS PLAY THE SUNFLOWER LOUNGE BIRMINGHAM ON SATURDAY 17TH MARCH 2018, WITH SUPPORT FROM THE AMERICAS, PINK LAKE AND P.E.T. TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE HERE.
