Cosmo Jarvis, Is The World Strange Or Am I Strange?

You may already be aware of Cosmo Jarvis. Perhaps you heard his debut single from a couple of years ago, “She’s Got You”; maybe you were alerted to his talents at the beginning of this year, when Stephen Fry tweeted to his multitude of followers that Cosmos’ “Gay Pirates” single was ‘wonderful’ – he was right; it’s possible you’ve seen Cosmo supporting Muse, Gabriella Cilmi, Panic! At The Disco or Reverend & The Makers.

Whatever, the 22 year old from New Jersey is about to drop his second album, Is The World Strange Or Am I Strange?, and it’s wonderful.

The record begins with two outstanding tracks, the aforementioned “Gay Pirates” and the sensational “Sure as Hell Not Jesus”. The lyrical content is joyful, with Jarvis managing to be witty, playful, impassioned, angry, pleading and exploding with ideas and meditations on the human condition. “The Talking Song” is a case in point, and it’s not too much of a stretch to picture the author puffing on a large one whilst cogitating on the world’s woes.

Defining the genre that this artist and his work comfortably fit in would merely be putting him in a box, and it’s clear that there are no boundaries in his imagination or the body of work that he has produced to date. I predict Cosmo Jarvis will be around for years, confounding expectations and exploring the song writing medium with verve and gusto.

The album is released on September 26th, don’t let it pass you by.
