Reliably informed

Character filled lyrics are at the forefront of Cosial’s newest single, Alien. The 18-year old’s words carry a lot of weight, despite the playful tone, expressing the wordless connection that can form in a mixed-race household, becoming a very compelling narrative for such a new songwriter.

The deadpan performance couples nicely with the bouncy bedroom pop beat that acts as the base for the single. With a structure akin to a wave, the song never becomes too overwhelming, but constantly changes, building up in intriguing ways.

The pieces are all there for the Teesside singer, who is already mastering her skills in the genre, I’d be interested to hear the walls torn down and see how far Cosial can take her sound.
