Cough Syrup is the first single from Melbourne raw-wave band, Cinema 6.

It is based on a scene from Wes Anderson's Darjeeling Limited.It will be available on Itunes, Bandcamp and all major streaming services on May 1, 2015


Cinema 6 is the refreshingly under-produced pioneer of Melbourne’s raw-wave scene and they’re introducing themselves to you with the release of their first single, Cough Syrup on May 1.

Cinema 6 is directed by singer-guitarist Daniel Heeps, who produced Cough Syrup and mixed it with Jonathon Campbell at A Likely Story in Vancouver, Canada. The single features the band’s core cast of Daniel’s brother and childhood next-door-neighbour: David Heeps on drums and Isaac Borthwick on bass.

Cough Syrup is about the self-medicated journey into sedation, partaking in thankless merriment by numbing yourself to reality with whatever you can get your hands on, the lyric “life’s overrated, I want to be sedated” sums up the sentiment. Sounds dark, however Daniel says “it’s messy and dirty but it’s just the start of a journey, we don’t know how this story ends yet so it’s not supposed to be nihilistic or depressing”.

Cough Syrup is a commanding raw-wave exemplar with buzz-saw guitar jangle, train-ride rhythms and Stones-like swagger. It was recorded in a single take at Little Gold – a stuffy, hay bale and clay-walled studio in Melbourne’s grungy inner northern suburb of Brunswick.

Daniel explains that Cinema 6 create audio-visual film adaptations and that Cough Syrup is one part of a bigger narrative - the disruptive, unresolved song off an album recorded in one take:
"We just set up, played the album in its entirety five times, like you would at a gig, and then picked the best take of the entire record, which happened to be take four. We then doubled the vocals, and over-dubbed some acoustic guitars and various other instruments. The core of the record is one take."
Daniel Heeps – Cinema 6

Cinema 6 are influenced broadly by 60s-rock, post-punk and grunge and are quickly building a loyal fan base for their high energy and intoxicating live performances; incorporating a strong visual element and ever-changing collaborative cameos from a range of Melbourne’s best underground artists.
Cough Syrup will be released on Friday 1 May and Cinema 6 invite you to watch the video, buy the single, be their friends and stay tuned for upcoming shows.
