Steeped in nostalgia, Colleen Green’s Cool is an album which wouldn’t be out of place if it were released 25 years ago. Taking nods from the likes of Julianna Hatfield and The Breeders, culminating in an excellent record, the likes of I Wanna Be A Dog and Natural Chorus compounding this sound.

Green shreds her way through these tracks in a brilliant fashion and at times sweetly, before closing out in a much more fervent manner. I Believe In Love has an urgency and angst which perhaps isn’t present throughout, but here she nails it. The record closes out on quite a delicate instrumental in Pressure To Cum. Cool is the perfect balance of light and shade, excellently balanced and executed.
