Cosmo Sheldrake shares new single and tour dates

Cosmo Sheldrake is preparing to release a debut EP on Transgressive Records, sharing a new track and details of a UK tour. Sheldrake has unveiled ‘Tardigrade Song’, the first new material since his sold-out debut 7” ‘The Moss’ on paradYse Records last year.

With a jaunty click-clack rhythm, Sheldrake imagines himself as a tardigrade, a water-dwelling micro-animal with eight legs that can handle extreme weather. Equally as good-spirited as previous track ‘The Fly’, it’s spun through a looping melody that sounds more like a seafarers tale than a folk story. Catchy and peculiar, it’s as if Sheldrake went around the world and brought ‘Tardigrade Song’ back as a gift.

Cosmo Sheldrake will play seven dates in the UK this spring, with a European tour soon to follow. The dates are:

FEBRUARY
2 London, Oslo (with Songhoy Blues) SOLD OUT

MARCH
14 London, Vinopolis (with Matthew Herbert)

APRIL
8 Leeds, A Nation of Shopkeepers
9 Bristol, Start The Bus
10 London, The Lexington
11 Brighton, Green Door Store

MAY
15 Brighton, Great Escape Festival
