PREMIERE: The Synthy Bombastic Excess of Cosby
  • MONDAY, APRIL 13, 2015

I have a serious weak spot for 80s synthpop. I blame the role that the Grand Theft Auto: Vice City soundtrack played in my musical awakening. And Richmond, VA synthpoppers Cosby. is scratching that itch with an unexpected intensity. We're premiering the video for their track, "Overboard," today and it is just about perfect 80s bombastic excess. The synths pulse forward with Duran Duran-esque abandon as the lead vocals take on an almost Joshua Tree-era U2 soar. It's a deceptively great pop number, and I immediately want more from this band as soon as possible.
