Gearing up for the release of an EP expected next month, Kool Thing have released ‘We Are Here’ as a taster. Whereas ‘Light Games‘ lurked in the shadows, sleeping with the curtains closed, ‘We Are Here’ gets louder and louder, engulfing all before it. The vocals remain in the darkness though, creating a track at once atmospheric, at others spooky and a song that is never anything less than exhilerating. Kool Thing are Julie Chance and Jon Dark, from Dublin and Sydney respectively. You’ll probably need to remember the name. They’re based in Berlin and return to Irish shores to play the Dublin Crawl on the second weekend of May. If you’re planning on going to see them, I suggest wearing black – it seems appropriate.
