Cosima (listen if you like: Sade, Erykah Badu, goats, Peckham)

Discussion in 'Potential next big things' started by bestinase, Oct 18, 2016.

  1. Posted in the main forum a few weeks back but cruelly bumped down to make way for Lady Gaga or whatever so here's another go.

    Signed to Island, from Peckham, been in development for a few years, just launched so I'm guessing they're aiming at some BBC Sound of 2017 buzz. Signed by Nick Shymansky who discovered Amy Winehouse. Her voice is literally Sade and this song is amazing.

  2. I discovered her on Instagram a few weeks ago or so. Her music is stunning, and so is she. Also actual "Potential next big thing".

  3. This is beautiful. Also, I immensely love her voice in her other song, Had To Feel Something.

    This is quite nice. I wonder how she'll mix up the styles for an album - she's got a very interesting voice (as does Sade).

    To be honest, when I saw this thread I initially thought this was Cosima from Australian Idol, who is nothing like this at all:

  5. I love the idea of adding "listen if you like:" at the title of these posts!

    Amazing. I haven't been able to stop playing this song since it premiered. It's such an addictive tune. The EP (which she's calling a mixtape for some reason?) is great as well. I feel like the Sade comparison is the most apt because she actually sounds a lot like Sade Adu in parts.

    Let me do some tagging @2014 @NecessaryVoodoo @Vasilios @Andy French @backstreetjoe

  9. Thanks @Noir hen, am already firmly on the Cosima train after @2014 submitted Had to Feel Something in the last PJSC. Sade comparisons are correct. Just gorgeous.

  12. Her voice, jesus. I checked her tumblr yesterday whilst listening to the mixtape, and even her aesthetics are on point.

  13. @Andy French, this is her! You MUST listen to the whole of South of Heaven as you liked Hymns For Him.

  14. I bought Hymns for Him last night and shall report back with my thoughts on the rest later! I love her whole "vibe".

  16. Incredible. That should be all over Radio 2, and I mean that in the best way possible.

  19. Amazing in Peckham again last night. Girl needs to get out of Peckham though. And on to, you know, releasing stuff. Or on Jools. Preferably both.
