Andre Costello and The Cool Minors – “Brighter Than Before”

Fifty words on Andre Costello and The Cool Minors new one-song shot. Minus those, wise guy.

Catchy indie pop, out Oct. 2, with all the right strut and inflection. Some of these bridges will knock you off your feet. “I/ know the way to your light.” Great textures, rousing yet contained close. Costello’s voice is pitch-perfect on this thing. Name your own price on Bandcamp? Sold! – Justin Vellucci, Swordfish, Oct. 4, 2019
