In The Spotlight

Cosmic Crooner – “Girlfriend”

Based in Amsterdam, this is the vintage-dipped project of Dutch singer/songwriter Joep Meyer. He started making music at the age of 14, after receiving a bass guitar for his birthday. Wrapped in his love for the 70s, he’s created a blend of lounge pop and psychedelic rock he calls ‘doowop space pop’. Inspired by Lou Reed, Serge Gainsbourg and David Bowie, he debuted with “Deep Down In Jazz” in 2021.

Starting with a playful piano and a mellow rhythm, his new single is a laid-back journey to yesteryear. As the track progresses it paints a fuller sonic picture by adding retro guitar strums and crisp bells. Reminiscent of the songwriters from the late 60s/early 70s, it’s his suave, ranging to falsetto, vocals that make this refreshing tune sounds like he arrived in the present with a time machine.
