Cooly G - Wait 'Til Night
Cooly G returns with ‘Wait 'Til Night’, an album of sensitive, lo-fi bedroom music, its lyrics sketching dreamy scenarios of seduction, lust and sex.
The moody South London house of her debut album 'Playin Me' and her DJ sets has given way to a near-horizontal, sometimes melancholy and highly original take on R’n’B. The tracks swing effortlessly with no-fuss musical arrangements that are filtered through reggae sound system culture and US R’n’B in equal amounts, with a slight hint of dark synth-pop wound throughout.
The pace has come down from the deep, tribal house she's known for so far, with the only constants that run through the album – her intimate vocals and smokey synths – cross-hatched with her characteristic broken rhythmic sense. Opening with title track, Cooly coos about a date, over an infectious synth lead that wouldn't sound out of place on a Depeche Mode song. 'Like A Woman Should' is twilight music, synths rolling out like clouds over pulsing drums, while the vocals whisper invitations. 'Your Sex' is a fantasy with synths and surprisingly stabbing, hooky and distorted rhythm guitar.
‘Wait ‘Til Night’ finds Cooly G casting her net wider than her debut album, with songs that are more confident, accessible and stylistically consistent. The album comes laced with Cooly's unique honesty and charm and is sure to win her new fans with her catchy melodies, slow-jammed stories of blighted urban romance, and engaging lack of pretension.
