Cool Sounds

“‘Dance Moves’ likely isn’t the first title that might come to mind when naming an album centred around anxiety, but for Melbourne band Cool Sounds it works.”

“…Lead singer Dainis Lacey’s half-nervous/half-demoralised voice manages to carry an entire album… helped significantly by a backdrop of smooth Balearic indie rock and glassy synth pop.”

“…Dance Moves is a quietly noble, personal step out into the open at its heart, and on the surface it offers music that’s easy to get caught up in. It swims in and out of your head and through your body, like a nervous feeling, or indeed, like any dance move should.”
