Fresh Track: Cozy “Cola Shock Kids”

by @thoughtontracks

Cozy is Tiger Beat material.  They are a throw back that sounds like they have their teen years studying Gary Glitter deep cuts.  They sound like they feel comfortable in denim and prefer hair down to their shoulders.  As I listen to the opening rhythm guitar take from “Cola Shock Kids”, I immediately feel like I am stuck in a crowd of has-been Cheap Trick cougars looking to pounce on a crowd of hipsters. While I continue to play “Cola Shock Kids” over and over again I remain interested in these wannabe teenage heart breakers.

Cozy consists of ex-members of Boys Club and Retainers. They just released the 7” of  “Cola Shock Kids” on Chicago’s Hozac Records.  This is the same Chicago label that helped press and promote Smith Westerns debut release that we have all grown to love.  If you embrace the nostalgia and are a lover of vinyl then you better move fast.  Cozy pressed 475 copies their 7″ that you can grab from Hozac Records.
