Track: Jemma Freeman And The Cosmic Something Share First Single From New Album ‘Easy Peeler’

Suzi Corker

Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something return with their new album titled ‘Miffed’. It follows their 2019 debut album ‘Oh really? What’s That Then?’ and is due on the 25th of November via Trapped Animal Records.  Along with the news the band have shared the first single taken from the album with the infectious nihilistic track, ‘Easy Peeler’.

Freeman explains that the song was born out of a warm-up jam in a rehearsal, 

“It’s a thing of pure unadulterated fury at brexiteers, the patriarchy, antivaxers, terfs and royalists, with exasperation directed at late night online social media discourse dressed up as debate that is actually just pessimistic, shallow bigotry.  Easy Peelers are a type of fruit specially bred for the skin to be easily removed. I like the symmetry of the name with the thin skinned critics of so called snow flake culture. The vitriolic delivery a testament to the unimaginable futility you can feel as just one small person in an ocean of vacuous impossibility.”

Freeman continues:

“The lyrics were written by walking around and singing out loud to the instrumental track during lockdown. I’d moved from South east London to the west London suburbs, to be near to my girlfriend at the time. Being visibly queer and autistic in an incredibly homogeneous upper middle class environment felt totally unnatural. There is a limit to how many tuts and suspicious looks up and down one person can tolerate before either shutting down or lashing back. I’m not a violent person, my power lies within my words so belting out a volley of anarchic affirmations felt empowering. I liked the idea of being antagonistic, the antithesis of the boomer core values I felt I might drown in.”

Frantic fuzzy guitars rattle out a quick beat with Freeman’s chaotic and melodic voice floats and jumps all over the track. It’s a scatter brain deluge of madness done in the unique style of the Cosmic Something.
