It takes a truly talented group of musicians to perfectly emulate the sounds and musical stylings from a period of time through which they have not lived.
The Cuckoos do just that.
The psych-rock group from Texas (composed of Kenneth Frost, Dave North, James Caldwell, Eric Ross, and Cole Koenning) is undeniably raising the bar in the modern rock scene, as their work possesses a level of innovation and skill that is largely unparalleled by most musicians today. Despite having just formed in 2014, The Cuckoos have cultivated such an advanced and intricate sound that one would easily assume that they’re veteran rockers without knowing otherwise.
Had they been around fifty years ago, they would have easily given The Doors a run for their money.
Something that makes The Cuckoos stand apart from the rest is their impeccable ability to master and utilize multiple different styles of music, resulting in the ultimate auditory nexus for anyone who not only appreciates rock, but the work of genuinely talented musicians.
Blues, psychedelic, and funk may seem like an unlikely combination of genres, but through their work, The Cuckoos have bought them together to create a unique sound that is impressive by anyone’s standards. “New Sunrise” provides listeners with the ideal psychedelic delight, while others such as “A Little Bit Funky” serve up an addicting blend of jazz and funk.
The Cuckoos are a band you’ll want to keep your eye on in 2017. To listen to their music and learn more about them, please see the links below.
