Rolo Tomassi are set to release their new album ‘Cosmology’ on April 19th through Hassle Records.

The band’s second album is produced by Diplo (MIA, Major Lazer), which is enough to make our mind boggle in amazement already. Speaking about the record James Spence said: ‘With this album, we really feel as though we’ve finally settled into our own sound. In the past we struggled to truly pin down what we wanted to do musically and that has been demonstrated in earlier material, but with ‘Cosmology’, we feel as though we’re taking the band where we’ve always intended to’.

Eva continues: ‘Because this album was written in the space of a few months, the songs were really fresh going over to LA rather than it being a gradual process, as it was with Hysterics. It was amazing to have the experience in somewhere completely different with a producer like Diplo and it really felt like a new start for the band.’

We just want to know how she makes that noise come from her mouth. Bloody terrified us first time we heard it - no joke.
