Exclusive Premiere: Cozmic “I Can Be the One”
Cozmic is the electro-pop music project of vocalist, songwriter, and producer, Niche Tandon. Splitting his time between Venice Beach, California and Brooklyn, New York, Cozmic is on a quest to mine a new strain of pop music. A broadly resonant aesthetic brimming with soulfulness and bold artistry, his music reflects an intersection of a profound inner journey and an eclectic musical trajectory.
Prior to Cozmic, the artist was already an accomplished singer, songwriter, and guitarist, recording and touring with indie pop, EDM, and hip-hop projects. His performance highlights in this realm include appearances at Bonnaroo and The World Culture Festival in India in front of 3 million people. During this chapter of his career, he also worked with acclaimed artists and producers such as Mike Shinoda (Linkin Park) and Tim O’Heir (The All-American Rejects).With smart compositions, a fashion-forward sensibility, and sincere and relatable lyrics, Cozmic is a vehicle to spread stellar connectivity and energy. Cozmic represents a victory of the spirit.
A dark romance, I Can Be the One is an infectious urban pop track that will get stuck in your head. Surfing the fine line between current and throwback, the song fits right into the modern music ecosystem of trap and R&B influenced pop but also has a nod to retro-pop in the song’s theme and vocal delivery. A catchy arpeggio analog synth, hard-hitting trap beat and bouncy bassline set the stage for Cozmic’s smooth and passionate vocals. The track grabs you right off the bat with a lo-fi tease of the earworm chorus melody and then doesn’t fail to surprise with subtle twists and turns in the production and arrangement of synths, beats and guitar work. The song is an empowering story about a guy who falls for “bad girl” that everyone tells him to stay away from, but he doesn’t listen as he realizes that she’s not who everyone says she is at her core. This is the first track Cozmic has worked on with NYC via London producer Guy Furious, who is known for his work with artists ranging from Zayn, The Far East Movement to critically acclaimed folk artist Juke Ross. Cozmic co-wrote the track with LA-based songwriter Charlie Snyder who has written for Bebe Rexha, Gnash, Machine Gun Kelly and most recently with the hot new Japanese rockers, One OK Rock. The single would appeal to fans of artists like Bazzi, The Weeknd and Liam Payne while still standing apart from the crowd with its unique, yet accessible sound.”
