COUGHY (RO)

COUGHY (RO)

Coughy's arsenal of musical devices is as simple as their studio method: two controllers connected to a laptop, a guitar and a voice treated with guitar effects. Seen as a whole, Coughy’s album is well hidden behind filters that allow the listener from time to time to dig beneath the thin layers of meaning that these two musicians are building in their interminable laptop & guitar chess game, recalling sometimes the soundmark of Panda Bear or Eric Copeland and making it one of the most interesting psychedelic albums ever made by a Romanian band. And maybe that’s why they have recently signed with Apollo Records - an offshoot of the legendary R&S Records - the Belgian imprint that has had some prestigious contributors over the years, like Aphex Twin, Biosphere or The Orb’s Thomas Fehlmann.
