New Music: Kelsey Coockson

With over 700,000 streams to her name already, Kelsey Coockson is one of the most exciting talents to emerge from the Netherlands recently. A pop sound that is refreshingly open and honest lyrically while wrapped in melodies that are easy to fall in love with.

Coockson’s work is done in collaboration with Maurits Huijgen; they write and produce together, as well design the artwork, press photos, videos and so on. All of this comes out of their independent label which is run from their apartment in the middle of Amsterdam.

On ‘Sabotage’ Coockson notes, “I was used to sabotaging myself and rejecting someone before it even started. In my current relationship, I decided not to get in the way anymore. That worked; we’ve been together for six years now. This song is an ode to that.”

Taken from the upcoming debut EP ‘Shadow Box’ which is out soon.
