Cousin Kula

Cousin Kula (a Bristol project) born through a shared affinity for psychoactive compounds and a mutual love for jazz music, take a small step into a more mellow yet hypnotic direction with their new track.

‘McLovin’ You’ is the followup single from Cousin Kula’s forthcoming self-produced EP, The Casa Kula Cassette.

The catatonic track is a psychedelic slow dance through a blurry soundscape littered with experimental jazz undertones and a soulful beat that may remind one of an age now dead and gone. It’s a sonic spectacle to gaze upon and cherish for but a little while. Indeed, it’s the kind of track that you put on repeat, and listen to over and over again, until your flatmate screams at you.

Now, sit back, turn up the volume, and listen to the groovy vibrations of Cousin Kula.

As one walks into the Cousin Kula compound, one is met by bicycles in the hallway, local artwork hung on the walls and instruments strewn about… In the garden a handmade pizza oven and home grown vegetables exhibit their selfless ambition for self-sufficiency.

Keep up with Cousin Kula on Instagram and be sure to follow the homegrown project on Spotify you filthy animals.

“‘McLovin You’ kind of signifies a shift towards writing more soul influenced tunes. Just enjoying the simplicity of songs as they present themselves, not fucking with them too much, and not trying to smear lyrics with too much weirdness, it felt okay and actually liberating to just write lyrics that just lay naked and obvious. ‘I’ll never forget loving you’. The tune serves as a farewell to the biggest love of my life, but not a goodbye forever thing, just like a – I’ll always love you kinda thing.”
