On the title track of Everything Everything's Cough Cough EP, Jonathan Everything declares, "I'm coming alive".
That's an understatement. Cough Cough's vitals practically pulsate off the charts as skittering electronics reverberate over tribal drums and tastefully raw guitars. The group skates with dance floor swagger between ethereal moods—see the pensive "Undrowned"—and the futuristically funked-out "Kemosabe". It's a confident and catchy distillation of genres into something that's both inimitable and intoxicating. They've got everything going on, but they don't shove any aspect down the listeners throat. Rather, all of these strands fuse chemically into one explosive sonic connection.
Every Everything have dropped one of the most exciting releases of 2013, and as Dr. Frankenstein once eloquently put it, "It's alive".
