GABRIELLA COHEN+ BYRON HARE + PHONES
Talking about Gabriella Cohen requires a new adjective: when she tells you about a guitar tone she likes, an organ sound she’s looking for, or the opening bars of The Velvet Underground’s ‘I Found a Reason’, she might tell you these things sound ‘pink’. She’s not describing a synesthetic or aesthetic connection with the colour — instead, it’s an adjective she’s coined. Luckily, after a spin through Cohen’s debut album Full Closure and No Details, we’ll all know what ‘pink’ sounds like: it sounds like this. It sounds like heartbreak and reckless abandon, like quiet reflection and raucous teamwork.
Following supports for Warpaint, Wooden Shjips, and a US tour with Foxygen, the Melbourne-based singer-songwriter and the frontwoman of garage band the Furrs, embarks on her first UK headline tour in May, calling at The Sunflower Lounge Birmingham on the 22nd.
Full Closure and No Details is available via Captured Tracks on 3rd March 2017.
