The Cosmic Something is the first solo project by multi-instrumentalist and
songwriter Jemma Freeman. Known previously for their song writing and guitar work
with dreamy psych band Landshapes (Bella Union) and new wave art band The
Fucks, Jemma has taken these two approaches and tinged them with energetic glam
Powerful, lush guitar tones and introspective psychedelic lyrics bound together with
unbounded energy and urgency. Pulling together themes of secret worlds, hidden
agendas, apathy and anxiety, Jemma’s sonorous voice tells the story of unravelling
completely and tying yourself back up again.
Their first EP ‘Someone Else To Blame’, released on DIY label Friction Shifter in
2017 has been described by John Kennedy (Radio X) as “…discovering gold
beneath the mountain…” and “Storming!” by BBC 6 Music’s Tom Robinson. Live the
band consists of Transglobal Underground’s Hamilton Lee on Drums, Krupa on
synth and backing vocals and producer Mark Estall on Bass. Whilst comparisons
have been drawn with Throwing Muses, Captain Beefheart and PJ Harvey, Jemma
maintains their own unique strength and delivers powerful performances.
New single out July 20th with an album planned for 2019.
