Cots is a new project from Steph Yates (Esther Grey, Cupcake Ductape). Borrowing elements of bossa nova, folk, jazz, and classical, Yates’s subtly unconventional composition style and poetics are at work here in a hushed and more naked voice. The sounds and images of Cots are familiar the way dreams and shadows are; there appear strange landscapes, the vague outlines of former lovers, a quiet queerness, the feeling of motion. These are songs of closeness and aloneness.
