It’s been four years since Dublin duo Ross Turner and Cian Murphy aka I am the Cosmos released their excellent debut album, Monochrome, (though ‘Letting It Go‘ helped ease the wait, and now, following a stellar set at Another Love Story in August, they’re back with a four-track EP, Nothing But Love, out on Art for Blind. Two tracks clock in at over seven minutes, but it’s the shortest track of the four (4.49 minutes) ‘Making Me Wait’ that really stands out. They had a residency at the old UCD medical school building behind the National Concert Hall; Turner told Greedy Pig: “The best thing about the building is the way it sounds, these big open cavernous spaces, so we thought we were in a unique position and it’d be great to have some sort of sonic fingerprint or imprint of the building in our music, but while changing what we were doing to fit it in. I’d be out getting field recordings – creeping around with a microphone, hearing choirs as the sound would carry beautifully down the halls – and trying to place that in. We were making electronic music but wanted to have this open, spacious, amorphous sound which was just a really long process in order to get those things to marry.” Of the EP itself, Murphy said: “In the first album we did sort of just throw every idea at it and go ‘That’s good, throw it in!’ We wanted to refine that a little.” The Nothing But Love EP, with cover designed by Murphy’s 12-year-old niece, is up on Spotify and released on vinyl through Art for Blindbuy it on Bandcamp. I am the Cosmos play Bello Bar in Dublin on December 15 – Facebook event.
