Penned by Abby Sohn and Paul Battenbough, “Dear Ones” is the first single from the album “Islands” (due for release on 6 May 2016).
The Cosmic Array were founded via a collaboration between Paul Battenbough (No Thee No Ess, King of Despair) and Huw Rees (Rag Foundation, King of Despair) that started in late November 2012. Their 2014 self-titled debut album introduced their unique brand of sci-fi themed alt country/Americana music:
The new release “Islands”, sees the line-up bolstered by the considerable talents of singer-songwriter Abby Sohn, an American expat living in South Wales. The result is an immersive album – richly textured layers of sound fronted by the assured, languid vocal styles of both Battenbough and Sohn. It’s at times tender, at times wholly uncompromising.
“Dear Ones” is featured as the current “single of the week” of the radio show L’Attimo Fuggente.
