The lyrics from Cosmo Sheldrake‘s new song are taken from a William Blake poem called “The Fly.” The crashing noise is Cosmo “smashing slates in Wales” and recording it. This sounds odd, but not when you know a little about Cosmo Sheldrake.
We know a little about Cosmo because we heard the wonderfully strange “Rich,” a song that had us instantly intrigued by this young artist from England. A few things about him:
- He’s played classical piano since the age of 4
- He draws inspiration from Balkan brass
- He runs vocal improv and beatboxing workshops, and youth empowerment/wilderness camps
Obviously, this is the kind of young man who would make “The Fly.” Great stuff, check it out below.
