COOLWAVE - “So Sad”

COOLWAVE - “So Sad”


Single released January 24th 2014 through MUZAI Records


Having released his début EP back in 2013, UK artist Jack Shea a.k.a Coolwave returns to the forefront with his latest series of works – a pair of unabashed, sixties infused pop melodies that make up So Sad, released January 24th through MUZAI Records.

A follow up of sorts to the Summer's Here! EP, which caught the attentions of New Zealand music websites such as Cheese on Toast and Undertheradar.co.nz, in part due to it's overt “kiwi-jangle” sound, So Sad was penned during the later half of 2013 – the titular A-Side a sombre ballad that was briefly highlighted on the last EP (“Summer Moon”) and the bubblegum-surfer-pop B-Side, “Girl From Blackpool.”

Once again teaming up with producer Serge Saint Rose, So Sad marks a collaborative effort with Daniel Alexander Blackball (The Attic), creating an original piece of single artwork and further helping push Shea as one of the more understated artists on MUZAI... and it's strongest musical link to the United Kingdom so far.

So Sad is available through http://muzai.bandcamp.com from January 24th.

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
