Sink In The Water was recorded at Manchester’s Low Four studios and produced by Brendan Williams, known for his work with GoGo Penguin and Dutch Uncles and is the first of six new Cocoa Futures tunes to be released this year.
Cocoa Futures‘ Greg Sanderson spoke with The Fountain about the concept for the track, their future plans and the fun they had at Great Escape last year.
TF: A new track, Sink In The Water, what inspired this song title?
The song is about getting older and thinking about whether you’re growing or sinking. And whether sinking is fun or bad. I’ll stop there, the meaning of the song might unravel.
TF: And what response have you received so far to this track?
It’s been pretty good thanks! There’s been lots of good support, and I’m looking forward to popping out the next one.
TF: And you are scheduled to play a couple of venues in London, but can we expect you in Scotland anytime soon?
I’d love to play in Scotland this year, it’s been a little while. Ta for the reminder. I’ve just WhatsApped drummer Dave from Fife to try and arrange something. We’ll let you know.
TF: And what was it like to work with Brendan Williams?
It’s been tidy thanks. He’s really good at music and has a lovely studio. It’s been a pleasure to work with him.
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
We had a really banging time at the Great Escape last summer. High-quality ice cream and lots of good music by the sea. Truly braw.
