PREMIERE: Cosmetics, “Honey Honey”


Lest you think they’ll never release the debut LP they promised a couple years back, Cosmetics are clearing their archives this Saturday with a Record Store Day release called Olympia…Plus. Originally pressed as a limited cassette, it pairs the duo’s first two Captured Tracks singles with an EP-sized collection of scrapped tracks from a Dub Narcotic session that went largely unheard for the past couple years.

It’s no wonder why they’re finally getting a proper vinyl release; bathed in black-lit beats and breathy melodies, songs like “Breathless” and “Heartbeat” wouldn’t sound out of place on Italians Do It Better’s next After Dark compilation or in the middle of a Minimal Wave DJ set. As for when we’ll hear an actual Cosmetics album, Captured Tracks insist “it’s coming, we promise.”
