Cool Sounds is the key project for Australian pop polymath Dainis Lacey, with a
live band that sees up to six musicians crowded onstage. Across four albums to
date, Cool Sounds move deftly through indie-rock, 80s pop, cheerful funk and
alt-country, with a lightness of touch that disguises Lacey’s thoughtful,
perceptive songwriting.

New album Like That comes out in October 2022 and its three singles have
already been covered by The Evening Standard (UK), The Guardian (UK), Radio
France, Frankie Magazine and NME Australia, with airplay on BBC 6 Music, Triple
J, Double J and across community radio.

Cool Sounds toured Europe in 2015 and 2019 and return in early 2023. They
have shared stages with Twin Peaks (US), Spiral Stairs (US), plus Australian indie
royalty like Good Morning, Snowy Band and Mod Con. Their 2019 album Cactus
Country was nominated for an AIR Award, and previous releases have been
featured in Line Of Best Fit (UK), Raven Sings the Blues (US) and elsewhere.
