Cosima makes dark waves with shadowy song "Had To Feel Something"

Peckham-born singer/songwriter Cosima has shared her utterly magnificent new video/single "Had To Feel Something".

The track is a heady mixture of shadowy pop and pulsing basslines. It's an intoxicating glimpse into darkness.

Speaking to Noisey, Cosima says: "When I wrote this song I was feeling so sad and angry that I had totally shutdown emotionally. It's about feeling so powerless that you'd do anything to get some type control back even if it means self destructing. It was really important and exciting for me to be able to frame myself; so I decided to direct and edit the video myself. It started off as a bit of an experiment. I picked my favourite clothes out of my wardrobe and called my friend who is a photographer. We spent a weekend shooting footage at my flat and around my area in Peckham which is where I grew up. It was important for me that the video was shot in the space where the feelings in the song happened."
