“I had two older sisters, who taunted me a little because I was the weird sister. I had imaginary friends, but they didn’t really like me either… they were always fighting and it was hard work trying to keep them under control.”
Welcome to the intriguing imagination of CuckooLander, an artist ready to make her mark with her self-titled debut EP, which will be released on iTunes and on limited edition 7” vinyl on 12th October. She has also been confirmed to support The Libertines at London’s Alexandra Palace on 26th September.
Combining the effortless garage rock cool of Alison Mosshart and Karen O with Sky Ferreira’s twisted take on pop sensibility, lead track Dumb Dee Diddy Dumb has been described by NME as having ‘mammoth riffs and singalongs…as catchy as they come’, and in CuckooLander’s own words, “the first song that I wrote and I actually liked”.
The EP, which includes soulful torch-song All The Way and jagged riff-friendly pleasure What’s Out There, is a very real slice of CuckooLander’s dark side, with Tarantino-esque riffs, and her love of the fantastical. “This EP is something I’ve created that feels fully ‘me’, and I’ve never felt I’ve achieved that before”. Here marks the beginnings of the first CuckooLander chapter.
Having already played this year’s British Summer Time festival at Hyde Park, CuckooLander now gears up for a string of shows across Europe with The Libertines, including the first of their run of shows in London.
