Cosmos Sunshine Announces Single, “Letdown”
The new psych rock single from Cosmos Sunshine, “Letdown” is a jolt of sonic electricity. With a roaring chorus and venomous lyrics, the ensuing combination makes for a raucous treat. Buzzing amplifiers gives life to power chords with purpose, as the melody chugs through its gargantuan riff. It is the first single off the upcoming album, Comes With The Fall, out May 25.
Born, Cosmos Sunshine Heidtmann on a commune-like hippie settlement on the Connecticut River, there’s an outpouring of influence behind the music that draws from years of reflection and observation. Following that formula, “Letdown” is a psychedelic rock anthem with a tinge of angst best served at maximum volume. The big rock hooks and groove of the extended bridge lay the foundation for a story about being let down. Heidtmann explains, “If you stay in the world of music long enough and have personal relationships over that time, you will invariably have close association with addicted bandmates, apathetic audiences, as well as beautiful, vapid love interests.” The song is about rising above that daily grind, and finally breaking free.
Now living in Connecticut, Heidtmann gains inspiration from nature in the countrified setting, but also from the people in his life during his time in New York City. The beauty is that each individual component encountered is wondrous, challenging, and ultimately flawed. Comes With The Fall brings a piece of each element into unified harmony. From Middle Eastern influence with an Afghan Rubab on the opening instrumental track, to the exhilaration of “Black Eyed Soul”, the album breathes as it moves. His music is an evolution of his life and journey through each colorful scene.

Always featuring his own compositions and having self-produced majority of his work, he has released four full length albums and four EPs. Sunshine has opened for Gov’t Mule, Blues Traveler, and King Crimson. He was also recently inducted into the CT Blues Hall of Fame. His upcoming album, Comes With The Fall, is out May 25.
