Why artists shouldn’t stick to art
The whimsical, playful art of Kozyndan requires something cute but not sickly; slightly off-kilter and trend-aware. Of course, I could cheat here – their website lists their favourite acts – but I’m going to throw in a few suggestions of my own.
She & Him – ‘In The Sun’
Self-explanatory, although I’m not sure if the Zooey ship has sailed from sheer oversaturation.
Lykke Li – ‘The Only’
There’s something very primal about the percussion on Lykke Li’s music which fits in well with Kozyndan’s nature-inspired work.
The Shins – ‘Simple Song’
Yes, I am nicking that from Lucy Cage and no, it’s not a Wes Anderson movie.
Grimes – ‘Vanessa’
More the sort of thing that Dan and Kozy would actually like, this is one Grimes video that I haven’t seen a thousand gazillion times yet – and it’s rather good.
Glasser – ‘Treasury Of We’
Cameron Mesirow’s glacial electropop doesn’t just follow in the much-trodden Bjork/Danielle Dax footsteps but carves a niche for itself as a kind of experiment in layers and textures. The cascade of vocal samples fits nicely with the swells of Kozyndan’s aquatic-themed prints such as ‘Uprising’.
