DESCRIPTION

Rising stars Cousn continue their impressive run-of-form with the two-track Brain Ticker EP. Named as one of Pete
Tong’s rising stars for 2019, the duo unveil their third release on their own FAMLY Records imprint with this next
release.
“Brain Ticker epitomises what we’re about, it’s chaotic and in your face. With Billy recording the vocals in one take whilst
cramped in a cupboard under the stairs at home, anything musically technical gets thrown out the window in favour of
capturing that raw energy. Organon on the other hand, introduces a more delicate quality to our production. The chord
progression and notation of the track creates a melodic but relentless feeling at the same time which we feel captures a sense
of euphoria on the dance floor.” Cousn.
Brain Ticker starts proceedings. With live percussion, the track exudes groove and features a swinging bassline alongside an
infectiously catchy vocal sample. Upbeat but similarly penetrating, it has a real punk attitude as whistling hi-hats complete the
track’s unique, genre-traversing nature. Second up is Organon . With this, Cousn demonstrate their ability to traverse styles
with ease, providing a down-tempo, moving cut that pulls deeply on the heartstrings. An old-skool electro like synth provides
rhythm, as soft keys move alongside a whip-like kick.
