Alex Lashlie's COSMIC SHIFT IN LIFE EP was written on a long overseas adventure around 2010/11. It is inspired by the people he met, in the weirdest of places. It holds long notes of depression and desperation, but essentially it is a positive motion and movement in the life of an artist.
Drawing from alternative country music, and rambling psychedelia to spoken word and Afro-Beat, C.S.I.L will carve its own way in contemporary music.
ON NEW EP Cosmic Shift in Life Melbourne singer/guitarist Alex Lashlie proves that with every delicately placed note, every richly crafted melody and every part of himself that he’s a songwriter to be reckoned with and an artist on the rise. Live favourite Whisky Mumma, captured here in breathtaking honesty, is the stuff of real beauty.
