Sydney-based twin act Cosmo’s Midnight are back with their first taste of new music for the year with Can’t Do Without (My Baby).
Following on from their sophomore album Yesteryear, the funk-laced release is built upon a sample from 1970s American soul singer Tommy Tate’s track I Can't Do Enough For You Baby, made complete with an infectious guitar riff and house production. Can’t Do Without (My Baby) arrives alongside an official visual, directed by Harry Scott, whih follows a group of friends as they discover the song and make their way to a Cosmo’s Midnight gig.
Speaking of the track and video, the duo say: “It’s strange how people can be nostalgic for eras they’ve never experienced, for Can’t Do Without (My Baby) we wanted to capture the feel of coming of age at the turn of the millennium (even though we were just lil babies at the time) when house music was in its golden age. It was celebratory and ecstatic, which is something we really try to bring out in our tunes. This song is really a celebration of that, which feels especially poignant to us, as we all emerge from 24 months of self reflection, isolation and anxiety.”
Launching into the industry with their acclaimed 2018 debut, What Comes Next, Cosmo's Midnight have gone from strength to strength, with the multi-instrumentalist, songwriting and production due cementing their status with their 2020 sophomore record, Yesteryear. Having teamed up with the likes of Korean pop supergroup BTS, the pair have also taken to the stage at mammoth festivals including St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Listen Out, Splendour in the Grass, with sold out headline shows across the US, Asia, UK, Europe and their homeland Australia.
