“Nube” is the new EP by the electronic artist IL COSA, to be released on June 23th, 2002; new single “Chiusa” out now

It all begins on June 23th, 2019, when a fire burns down a waste disposal factory in the city of Frosinone, Italy. A black cloud rises and the air becomes unbreathable over several kilometers. The order is given to stay at home, with windows closed and air conditioning off for at least forty-eight hours. Then, it turns out that the fire is arson and the case is entrusted to the anti-mafia. During those days, Ilario IL COSA Promutico spends time at home with some friends, recording jam sessions. The six tracks included in his new EP were created later but were inspired by the memories of that summer, using also some samples taken from those domestic recordings. Entitled not by chance Nube (in English, Cloud), the EP is to be released on all digital platforms on June 23th, 2022, exactly three years after that event.

The new single Chiusa – that means Closed – is out today May 26th, 2022, with a video made by Antonio Anzalone. According to Promutico: “Chiusa is the track that, even if it’s instrumental like the full EP, tells the time spent playing at home. Being locked up triggered the creation of an alternative world, completely different from the external one. The video is an elaboration of this imaginary and contrasts the darkness of the external world with the shapes and colors of an internal world“.

IL COSA moves between dub, industrial and bass music, pursuing abstract and gloomy melodic lines. IL COSA is the project of the bassist and electronic musician Ilario Promutico, born in Frosinone and currently located in Bologna. Initially passionate about post-punk and active in various post-rock bands, since 2011 Promutico has focused on the search for new sounds with samplers and synthesizers. IL COSA, his electronic identity, was born in 2017 and has released two previous EPs: Testone of 2020, played live with modular equipment, and lato of 2021, a collection of collaborations and experiments dating back to the pandemic period of lockdown. Il Cosa is also the name of the river that crosses the province of Frosinone, affected by an alarming pollution.
