Store Bought Cool
Store Bought Cool are a five piece from Melbourne's inner north. Their unique mash of influences from garage punk to antifolk, indie to swamp, twee to dark melodramatic pop, started drawing attention in 2011 as their first single “The Wild” began getting airplay locally on RRR, PBS and SYN90.7 and later on 4ZZZ, 2SER and across Australia. Store Bought Cool quickly gathered a reputation for their original sound and high energy shows.
"Intriguing and impressive...a striking set filled with beautiful imperfection; raw and creative in the best possible ways...very, very original music...Definitely a band I’d love to see again in the future" - The [AU]Review http://tinyurl.com/3s9to77
Store Bought Cool’s new single Doing Fine is not a song about a girl. Engineered by James Catherine at SAE Melbourne and mixed in the UK by Tom McFall (Stars, REM, Weezer, Bloc Party, Editors) and mastered by Paul Fox of Indie Masters. Doing Fine is dream pop: Washed out vocal harmonies, surf guitar tones and soft hypnotic violin. It builds from a lonely chime to bright technicolor and then fades leaving everything clean, smelling like fresh laundry and rain.
“We’re pretty exciting about “Doing Fine”, it’s a bit of a departure from what we did with The Wild. We wanted to give people something a bit brighter and more poppy for our next release, but don’t worry there’s still plenty of spooky left in us. We hope that everyone else enjoys it as much as we enjoyed making it”.
From April 28th “Doing Fine” will be available for download at http://storeboughtcool.com where you can name your price.
