LOCAL bands with dynamic girl singers are not exactly commonplace, so it’s particularly nice to welcome the advent of Cosmic Emotion.
Tracey Wykes is the bubbling vocalist/front-girl for the new North Warwickshire band with that distinctive name.
But the rest of the band’s line-up also features some well-known local names.
First, there’s Dylan Haddon, now one of the most seasoned campaigners on the local scene after spells with Trojan and Exodus. Dylan is handling lead guitar duties.
Tony Bradford, formerly of Vulcan, is on the drummer’s stool, while former Spirit of Water man Brad Riley is on bass and occasional synthesiser.
And the music? Dylan said: “It’s early days to say but so far we’re very pleased with the way things are turning out.
“The sound is definitely not HM, but it does stray towards Hawkind at times, but is also quite punky,” added Dylan.
So far, the band’s biggest composition is a 20-minute opus in three parts called “Cosmic Music”.
The band have a date lined up at Atherstone Miners’ Welfare Club.
