Cosmos Midnight have been busy this year not only with working on and releasing their second studio album, ‘Yesteryear’, but they also had a hand in co-writing “Fly To My Room” that’s featured on the latest BTS album, ‘Be’. Of the song, the duo comprised of brothers Cosmo and Pat Liney shared that they were contacted earlier this year by BTS management and worked on the song remotely. Although it wasn’t written for ‘Yesteryear’, the Sydney-based duo has stated that it might have been a song that could’ve fit on the album, which draws from the 70s psychedelia, funk and disco influence sounds that they grew up with. The duo stated- “Our second album is about reflecting on the past with not only nostalgia but also an element of melancholia ~ all the formative experiences that we absorb growing up both good and bad. It’s an album inspired by personal growth, looking back on these experiences, learning from them and moving forward with optimism. Stylistically we have always looked back to genres our parents introduced to us growing up; disco, funk, psychedelia, alt-pop of the 70s and 80s. In Yesteryear we have honed in on that, moving away from overly produced sounds to more organic instrumentation, focused on feeling rather than thinking.”

Cosmos Midnight spoke with B-Sides host Pete Mar about their collaboration with BTS, how their father really helped inform the sounds on ‘Yesteryear’ and more. Check out the interview:
