The Cuckoos are premiering their new single, “Heartbreak Paradise”, exclusively via PopMatters just in time for Valentine’s Day. Listen HERE. “The group transports us back to an era filled with the kind of vibrant hues favored by the Doors and Love while remaining very much of this moment and, ever so slightly, the future”, PopMatters notes. “The song’s lyrics combine a truly timeless topic with something perhaps one step ahead of the present.” “Heartbreak Paradise”, which marks the band’s first release of 2018, was recorded over the course of two days at The Bubble studio in Austin with Grammy-nominated producer, Chris “Frenchie” Smith (The Dandy Warhols, Slayer, The Front Bottoms).

2017 was undeniably a standout year for The Cuckoos. With the release of their self-titled debut EP in April, the band garnered praise for their ability to bring back the sounds of the 1960s through their original songs. Relix Magazine championed the album, writing, “It builds on the band’s captivating blend of genres, evoking the 1960s through a contemporary lens,” while Glide Magazine likened the “rock and roll magic being conjured” by The Cuckoos to “The Doors, Joy Division and Rick James writing songs with Tame Impala.”
Following its release, the EP hit #53 on NACC Radio 200, #13 on NACC Radio 200 Adds and #34 on FMQB Alt Spec Albums. The success of the EP also helped make possible a distribution deal with Republic of Music, a two-week tour of the UK, a show in New York City, their first-ever Mexico dates this past December and a set at Bahidora Festival in Estacas, Mexico, taking place next month.
The Cuckoos were formed in 2014 by lead vocalist/keyboardist, Kenneth Frost, and lead guitarist/backing vocalist, Dave North. To flesh out their lineup, North introduced Frost to a pair of his longtime friends, including powerhouse drummer Cole Koenning and bassist Eric Ross. Together, despite their young ages, the four musicians have quickly amassed a body of work that evokes a nostalgic classic-rock sound, yet remains fresh and innovative. As Classic Rock Magazine aptly puts it, The Cuckoos are “hip young dudes who mine the late sixties acid rock scene for inspiration, but sound so authentic you’ll think you’re having a flashback.”
