Cosmopolis Release “The Distances”

Cosmopolis is an innovative alternative/art rock band with major Radiohead, David Bowie vibes. Consisting of three musicians based around the world, in Belgium, Australia and England, this band makes music together physically sometimes, and other times virtually!

So yes, their music is occasionally recorded in multiple locations and is arranged, mixed, and mastered via the cloud. How cool is that!? Seriously, thank goodness for the power of technology. It’s truly a magically thing.

With the band’s unapologetically dark music and belief that the power of music can influence emotions, behaviors, and morals, “The Distances” expresses a claustrophobic and menacing feel. Both feelings are perfect for what’s going on right now, where most people feel mentally stuck or are literally stuck at home, for months.

With haunting lyrics like, “There’s no nature here / Don’t stay / You’re not welcome here / You’re not wanted here / Get out of here,” you experience the premonition of being left out and not important, or… the feeling of being distant.

According to the band, the song obliquely compares the end of Romanticism, shattered by the 20th century, and the environmental crisis of the 21st.

About Melanie Gomez

My name is Melanie Gomez and I graduated with a BA in print journalism with music management as my minor. I loved music since I was a kid because it was always a way my family and I bonded, as well as a way to express myself on my own time as I got older. I’m not a singer and I don’t play an instrument, so my way of being part of the music industry is by getting to write about the music I love in various reviews and through my concert photography. Another goal? To make people smile. You can find me on Instagram @MelanieGomezPhotography. For professional inquires only, please email: [email protected]
