COSMS is a drum and bass duo that utilizes loops, effects and synths to achieve their unique sound. The music is very rhythm heavy with evolving movements and layers.

Biography

Two individuals, one from small town Indiana and one from Shanghai, met in Austin on the first day of 2013 with the goal to make music that was different.  COSMS is the product of their intersection.  Influenced by many of the same bands (Tortoise, Mogwai, Battles) from a world away, Damen (formerly of Duck Fight Goose) came to Austin from Shanghai and began to play with Josh on bass.  They recorded their first EP at Ohm Recording Facility in Austin shortly after their initial meeting in March of 2013 and returned for another in the winter of 2014.  Their new EP, "Arteria," will be released on March 18th during SXSW.  

Though their music is heavily driven by rhythm, COSMS is far more than just a rhythm section.  With an outward influence by the world around them and the use of loops, effects, and synthesizers, these two people sound like ten.
