CON VOS are a band from New York City who have expanded their sound far beyond the realm of just indie pop. They've masterfully blended together hip-hop and pop sensibilities on their debut Cocoon Bloom EP, which sounds a lot better than it does reading about it and is a sure sign of big things to come. Experience it for yourself below; the band are streaming the EP in its entirety today, and it's seeing a proper release on 3rd February.

The band were formed when Fortunate Ones, a hip hop duo from neighbouring state New Jersey, decided they wanted to break out of the world of strictly hip-hop into something more atmospheric and pop-minded. They decided to team up with Brooklyn-via-Ireland vocalist Sorcha Richardson and it turns out it was a match made in heaven; her voice soars over the production provided by fellow band member Genetics.

Indie trio CON VOS came together in January 2013 when New Jersey-based rap duo Fortunate Ones decided they wanted veer from the hip-hop path they were currently on. The fellas reached out to Brooklyn-based Irish singer/songwriter Sorcha Richardson about embarking on a new, collaborative project and CON VOS was born. The newly formed groups’ first release Central Park, boasts a seamlessness that sonically suggests the band has been writing together for years, but it’s the sort of sound that comes when an artist steps outside their comfort zone.

Today we got the first listen to a new cut, entitled “daymare,” from their forthcoming Cocoon Bloom EP, which is set for release February 3rd. It’s not the usual visual accompaniment but we kinda like it all that much more. We asked the band where the hockey idea came from and this is what they had to say.

“Serge has always had a love/hate relationship with the game of hockey. The best way to describe such an enigmatic relationship is by listening to “Daymare.” Something that once stood so meaningful, turns into nothing but a past dream. Love can be interpreted in all different facets. The struggles, the commitment, the break ups, the devotion and the heartbreak are just common themes that help best describe the roller coaster of the four letter L word. In this case, it’s a sport. Inspired by the upcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi. This is a quick trailer to introduce those that are not familiar with the underrated sport, and to appease those that live and breathe it every day. For the Love of the game…” -CON VOS

All we can say is we’re down for stepping out of your comfort zone, new ventures, new tunes, new vibes, and well…we’re down for these guys. Check out more on CON VOS HERE and pick up their new EP Cocoon Bloom February 3rd! - NYLON for Guys Magazine


“Coast” is the synth-laden sophomore release from New York trio CON VOS. Consisting of Irish singer Sorcha Richardson and rap duo Fortunate Ones, CON VOS is an interesting mix of indietronica and hip-hop that somehow works free from irony.

Taken from their upcoming EP Cocoon Bloom, “Coast” is all edgy synths and driving percussion, with Richardson’s gorgeous vocals warming the icy production. There’s a real 80s feel to this one, and it wouldn’t be out of place on the Drive soundtrack, or in some seedy Miami coke den. The Fortunate Ones add a rugged element with their N.Y. raps, but it’s all about Richardson, who is a talent ready to be unleashed.

Whatever your thoughts, CON VOS’ genre-bending take on indie, electronica, and hip-hop is extremely stimulating, leaving you wanting more. - Indie Shuffle


What happens when a hip-hop duo joins forces with an Irish singer/songwriter? Smooth synth-pop is not exactly the first thing that pops to mind... Pursuing a relentless effort to make sure their music goes down spread just like butter, the collaborative group Con Vos merges Brooklyn folk artist and proud tenor Sorcha Richardson with beat-tastic duo Fortunate Ones, to carve out a place for both of these musicians that hasn't yet been unearthed. Their single 'Central Park' (at almost 34k hits on SoundCloud!) is one of the catchiest odes to everyone's fave park you'll hear. Check it out below and look out for their debut EP 'Cocoon Bloom,' due out early next year - The Deli Magazine


After creating some noise with their song “Central Park,” New York-based trio CON VOS is sharing another new song from their forthcoming Cocoon Bloom EP slated for release in early 2014. “Coast” blends smooth electronic production, melancholic vocals, and an unexpected rap breakdown courtesy of New Jersey’s Fortunate Ones. It could easily pass as a track on a Gorillaz release. Stream it below - My Old Kentucky Blog

Bio

CON VOS' blend of indie-pop and hip-hop is difficult to define. It is a musical marriage between artists with two very different sensibilities. CON VOS came together in January 2013 when Brooklyn-based Irish folk musician Sorcha Richardson received an email from New Jersey rappers Fortunate Ones while at a recording studio in her home town of Dublin, Ireland. Wanting to move into new territory outside of the hip-hop records that they had been making as a duo, Fortunate Ones asked Sorcha to complete the lineup of their new experimental outfit and CON VOS was created. The trio's debut EP "Cocoon Bloom" is a seamless collection of smooth-pop and alternative hip-hop. Five tracks of funky, 80s infused production (courtesy of band member Genetics), melancholic female vocals and slick raps, this is a fresh sound from a band that is just getting started. CON VOS is proof that different genres can work together beautifully. A part of Music's evolution is contributed to artists experimenting and creating new sounds while paying homage to their predecessors. CON VOS are forward thinkers whose goal is to make feel good music that has integrity. CON VOS' Cocoon Bloom EP is available now at http://convosmusic.com/ .
