Hailing from all corners of the earth, Cosmopolis is the collaborative project of musicians who songsmith together and remotely. Their latest single “The Distances” is a downtempo piece that has an eerie air to it. Coated with visceral dark shades, the anthem soars with a suspenseful tension as the band addresses the death of Romanticism and our ongoing climate crisis. You could say this is a track for the pessimist, but one that gives a realistic punch of current issues. With “The Distances,” Cosmopolis uses art rock canvass splashed with dark shades of 60s new wave as the slow-burning synths stretch and dissolve with each other, offering a sonic escapade that makes you feel like you’re in an apocalyptic film. The echo-drenched choruses add a layer of enigmatic oomph to the piece as they muse on a dystopic world filled with emptiness. “There’s no nature here / Don’t stay / You’re not welcome here” chant Cosmopolis.
