Cool Sounds, the song writing project of Dainis Lacey, is all about pop melodies and clean instrumental interplay.
Drawing influence from a broad pool of song writers, from the 70’s soft rock of Todd Rundgren through to modern indie champions like Deerhunter and Ariel Pink, Cool Sounds make guitar pop music, brimming with ideas and hooks.
With two full length albums and three EP’s under their belt, Cool Sounds have established themselves as mainstays in the Australian indie music scene. The band has played with the likes of Twin Peaks (USA), Fazerdaze (NZ) Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever and Gold Class along with having toured extensively within Australia.
“Dance Moves is one of those near-perfect albums, packed with great, well-executed pop moments” 4ZZZ Radio
“Cactus Country’ is doused in a humid haze and underpinned with sparkling guitars. Loping along with no hurry in sight, the track practically squints in the sunshine.” – Raven Sings The Blues
“Cactus Country is a stunning offering of twangy guitar and shimmering synths. Playful yet laidback, the track’s many elements (including the sample of seagull sounds) work seamlessly together to create a delightfully refreshing example of what Cool Sounds are capable of.” One Great Song
