The Cuckoos Add Some Color to Quarantine with "I'll Be Ur Tramp"





The Cuckoos Add Some Color to Quarantine with "I'll Be Ur Tramp"

While many things in the city of Austin have been placed on hold because of the ongoing pandemic, The Cuckoo's have released a bit of hope for us all, in the form of a new video for their song "I'll Be Ur Tramp". The Cuckoo's have been a staple among band names, in the Austin live music scene for a few years now. Front man Kenneth Frost, along with his motley crew of band mates, Dave North, Eric Ross, and Cole Koenning offer up a chemistry that is impossible to ignore within the electrifying almost synth pop originality of the music they have created and released, untamed and unapologetically, into the streets and ears of both local and national fans.

 

 "I'll Be Ur Tramp" is the band's first video release for their upcoming EP "Honeymoon Phases", with no set release date, as off yet. Both song and album come after the fantastic success of "I Hate Love", the bands first self titled album. Songs like "Lady Boy" and "Why Don't You Call Me Anymore" give a funky twist on familiar inspirations from bands like The Talking Heads and Pink Floyd, while paying tribute to artists such as David Bowie.

"A funky soulmate diddy about finding a partner in crime to walk through life with," Kenneth tells me, is the feel he was going for with writing " I'll Be Ur Tramp". The video is simple yet enticing, inviting you to stay and watch the eccentric frontman dance and sing alone next an old TV flickering clips from previous Cuckoo's music videos and live performances. Frost also conceived and directed the video himself, proving he's more than just a pretty voice wielding a keytar!

 

With the success of their last album, there has been pressure to produce equally ear catching tunes and barbed hooks with new music for the band. The Cuckoo's don't seem to be letting the pressure get to them, and keep on hammering out smooth and funky acid pop hits like "I'll Be Ur Tramp". If anything is apparent, it's that this band is here to stay, and they are going to keep putting out songs and videos that make you feel good and remind us all that "it's ok to be a little sexy and dirty sometimes."
