Cosmo Pyke (that’s his real name) is an 18-year-old songwriter and multi-instrumentalist from Peckham. Raised on a diet of blues, jazz, hip hop, and neo-soul, he writes warm, lo-fi songs that he describes as “spacey, beautiful, and lazy”.

His songs draw less on other music and more on his everyday experiences growing up in south east London: reading books, going to pubs, playing football, and other simple pleasures in life.

Cosmo Pyke has a lot of strings to his bow. As well as being a singer and multi-instrumentalist, he’s a skateboarder, spray paint artist, and a model — spot him in Frank Ocean’s ‘Nikes’ video. It’s not surprising, then, that he doesn’t have a lot of time for sitting online, as he makes clear in the stoner-friendly acoustic pop of his debut single ‘Social Sites’, a song about an ex-girlfriend and social media’s role in a relationship.

Following a support slot for JAWS in December 2016, be sure not to miss Cosmo Pyke’s headline show at The Sunflower Lounge.
