Cocoa Futures returns with the bombastic, stadium-sized lo-fi of ‘Sink In The Water’. Indulging in the alternate, Greg Sanderson melds organic Grizzly Bear-esque percussion with the deep, permeating riffs of Foals and delivers all these elements with the spaciousness of Field Music. Recorded in Manchester’s Low Four studios and produced by Brendan Williams (GoGo Penguin, Dutch Uncles), this releases see the North London at his most spontaneous.

The track is a groove-led piece of art-rock that incorporates ambitious elements to create the biggest, most direct piece of music of Cocoa’s career thus far. After several sold out shows in London last year and appearances at The Great Escape, the young musician is poised to take 2018 by storm with five more releases planned to be released before the year is out.

Speaking of his lyrics, Greg notes that he was influenced by his current playlist favourites The Blue Nile and Prefab Sprout, and thematically by the contradictory impulses of the ageing process.  “Getting older doesn’t always feel like growing,” he explains. “It can feel a bit like sinking. There’s nothing inevitable about becoming a better person as you grow up and learn more.” Downbeat? Not a bit of it. “But maybe sinking is pretty good. Anyway, to keep things peppy, ‘Sink’ includes a nice happy major shift at the end!”

Cocoa Futures plays the Sebright Arms on April 6, tickets are available now.
