Dublin-born, London-based singer-songwriter Cosha will drop 'Mt. Pleasant' on July 2nd this year.
Emerging R&B/electro-pop artist Cosha (formerly Bonzai) has shared the latest single to be taken from her much-anticipated debut album, 'Run The Track'.
Named after the area in Dublin, where Cosha — born Cassia O’Reilly — was raised, her first album Mt. Pleasant sees her create a space in which she can find freedom, comfort and be herself in the music.
While Mt. Pleasant was started initially in LA, the project was finished in London, The LP is Cosha’s missive on building a home away from home. ‘Run The Track’, was made in LA with producer Rostam, known for his work on Clairo’s breakout Immunity and Frank Ocean’s iconic Blonde.
“It’s a rhythmic banger that will move you physically and emotionally," Cosha says of 'Run The Track'.
"It deals with the often bizarre courtship stage in a new relationship/friendship where you’re still figuring that person out and getting to know their nuances, maybe questioning your interpretations of their actions. It’s that journey from the delicate beginning through to a stronger, more concrete terrain; not ending, because a real friendship doesn’t end it just keeps growing stronger the more love you put into it...and if you’re not trying to get too deep with it, that’s cool. It just bangs. Let it move you.”
Heat has built around Cosha’s Mt. Pleasant since the release of first single ‘No Kink In The Wire’ last October. Since then, singles from the album, such as 'Lapdance From Asia' (feat. Shygirl) and 'Berlin Air', have had regular rotation on international radio.
The rich creative world around the album was born from collaborations with music video director Gilbert Bannerman, graphic designer Alice Gavin and photographers Roger Weiss and Lillie Eiger.
“When I think about what I love about the music I love and start dissecting, all those songs make me feel like I have company, made me feel more at home,” says Cosha.
“I wanted this album to be somewhere you can retreat to for companionship, something that leaves you feeling light and liberated. It’s called Mt. Pleasant because that was my home. Maybe this album can be a home for someone else now.”
