Premiere: Cold Courage – “Illusory”


The next time someone says youth is wasted on the young, point them in the direction of UK producer Cold Courage.

Only 23, he’s about to unveil his self-released debut EP called Her after the title track and follow-up “Brother” received a spate of props around the blogosphere. His ambient-experimental sound is realized by manipulating sounds, YouTube clips, iPhone memos and twisting it up with live instrumentation and assorted accoutrements.

Though he’s received rightful comparisons to stalwarts such as Jon Hopkins and Bonobo, Cold Courage’s layered signature wields a rawer, glitchy boom-bap.

We’re thrilled to debut “Illusory” from his maiden voyage, an expansive track that hints at even greater things to come for this rising talent.

Cold Courage’s Her EP is released May 20, 2015 on Cold Courage Music.
