Biography

Cosmo V is the alter ego of Cosmo Luhulima, a Dutch girl with Moluccan origins who makes electronic music inspired by lofi, garagerock, 'franse zuchtmeisjes' and other honest and unpolished musicgenres.

V, the Roman numeral for 'de Vijfde', or in English 'the Fifth', stands for her last name; in Malaysian, the most common language on the Moluccan Islands, 'Lima' means 'five'.

On a young age she always wanted to make fine art, but during her teenage years her dreams started to point in another direction.

Music and words got a big impact in her mind and she started to get influenced by writers, bands and other vagabond antihero's like Bukowski and Nico.
She got in touch with the DIY thoughts, purchased equipment to make electronic music, but with the same allure as the music she got inspired to.

Lyrics

Roam

Written By: Cosmo Luhulima

heat me with your light
A Way of walking free
Oh love can grow
But mad minds wont agree

Big purple haze
Young eyes become glazed
Big purple haze
Riders of the freight train

Roam around the clock
Cross roads and open fields
On an mountaintop
Save and concealed

Some men do admire
those who play with fire
walk on lonely roads
Go, run where ever the wind blows

Big purple haze
Young eyes become glazed
Big purple haze
Riders of the freight train

Big purple haze
for good days and bad days
Big purple haze
Young eyes become glazed

Desire will bring you sorrow

Written By: Cosmo Luhulima

It brings you sorrow, sorrow
It brings you sorrow, sorrow

Man's hands strangling with desire
Come on love spell witch, set the fire
Taking it easy wont kill time
Restless hearts driven by lies
Well known, Desire will bring you sorrow

It brings you sorrow, sorrow
It brings you sorrow, sorrow

Some will search for something certain
Common clash behind the iron curtain
But she missed it from her brave mother
Satisfaction will be given by another
And she knows, Desire will bring you sorrow

It brings you sorrow, sorrow
It brings you sorrow, sorrow

With the wild beast

Written By: Cosmo Luhulima

there he runs, an outcast boy
we dont walk the life of ease
hail the trees along the avenue
we came along with the wild beast
we came alone
we came alone

there she walks, the unknown path
we got beat, we dont believe,
the future of the young will turn in to gold
we came along with the wild beast
we stay among the wild beast
