Cosmicity, aka singer/songwriter/programmer Mark Nicholas, helped sustain and expand the underground Synthpop scene of the late 90's and early 00's.
Today, one could successfully argue that he has finally become a true master of the genre. 2014's "Humans May Safely Graze" finds Mark at the top of his game. The songwriting here has new weight and maturity, yet somehow every delicious synthpop flavor not only remains, but has blossomed. Mark's Erasure and Pet Shop Boys influences are still clear, but he's obviously been absorbing plenty of the new stuff too. Dubstep flourishes are hidden neatly in tiny pockets, and the more "raw" synthesizer sounds of bands like Chvrches and Class Acress have also begun to seep into his arsenal.
"Humans May Safely Graze" was recorded over the course of 3 years, and the quality and care taken is obvious - right down to the final mastering sheen applied at the famed Abbey Road Studio in London. (Yes, THAT Abbey Road.) Oh, sure, you'll find yourself feasting on the irresistible hooks on your first listen through this album, but you'll come back again and again for the emotional hook… secrets revealed and the truths identified. Indeed, it's not just a clever name: humans may safely graze.
2018 will bring Cosmicity's next full-length album, recently described by Mark as "Funneling my mid-life crisis into any album... with music soaked in synthesized ear-candy. More motion in the sounds. More air in the mixes."
