Cogel – Felusine


Sydney band Cogel have been one of my favourite new groups to appear on the music scene this year, and I am really excited about their new single ‘Felusine‘, complete with video.

I was first taken with Cogel because of their delicate vocals and beautiful way they blended indie rock and the classical sounds of the violin in ‘The Bug’. The thing that stands Cogel’s new track ‘Felusine’ aside from the plethora of other new bands is the way they are able to represent the full array of emotions in a song, challenging the textured tenderness of the vocals and violin with the hard hitting reality of the still melodic clashing drums. It is a track underpinned by tension, and somehow manages to tell a story that encompasses more than the vocals and sounds of the 4:30 the song runs for.  ‘Felusine’ is really the prefect backing tune for break up scenes in chick flicks – and if they were on the sound track, I could prehaps almost justify watching one. The film clip for this song is also freaking awesome and really showcases the intensity of the ‘Felusine’ appropriately.

With an EP near completion, expect to hear more from Cogel before the year is out.

Cogel – The Bug


Cogel are five piece band from Sydney responsible for the heart warming indie folk song ‘The Bug‘.

Backed by a rich blend of woody percussion and the eloquent strings of the violin, Cogel manage to encompass a sound that is not only unique but strikingly beautiful to listen to. Combined with the precious soft vocals of Nic Cogels, ‘The Bug’ delves into the heavy lyrics exploring the want and difficulty in love. Cogel manage to create a song that sucks you in emotionally, with the meticulous guitar and strings work picking its way to really strike a chord inside of the listener. It is one of those delicate songs that just breathes warmth and passion. A fantastic track.

With Edward Deer (of ‘Washed Ashore’ fame) hiding behind the drums, it is clear that Cogel are a very talented group of musicians. With an EP in the works, Cogel are a band to watch out for in the next year.
