“Magnificent weekend of music that touched the soul, stirred the emotions and wringed every ounce of energy from our dancing feet.” GIITTV’s David Edwards on his Primavera Sound highlights.
“I wanted to do a song/video that wasn’t just another 50-year-old bloke pretending everything’s fine and dandy, and pretending to be 18. This song ticks that box – a serious song based on a serious issue.” Tom Hingley speaks to GIITTV about his recent RSD single, his new music projects and homelessness in Britain today.
As indie-rock continues to plod through its landfill quagmire and dance music seems stuck between EDM trash and inconspicuous electronica, the psyche and shoegaze scene is thriving, vibrant and necessary. Cosmosis 2016 proves that looking backwards while simultaneously moving forward is absolutely possible, and with the scene in such rude health, Manchester should be proud to have an event capable of highlighting such incredible music.
