Lloyd Cole rose to fame with The Commotions, whose 1984 album Rattlesnakes is among the classic albums of its era. Cole later embarked on a solo career, which has resulted in a multifaceted and interesting discography.
Cole’s hits such as Perfect Skin and Lost Weekend are part of the indie rock canon in terms of catchiness and punchiness but, examined as a whole and below the surface, the songwriter’s overall output creates an interesting trajectory that also includes bold leaps into new territory. In addition to straightforward rock, Cole has explored, among other things, the worlds of country, electronic music and synth pop.
Lloyd Cole has displayed different facets of his songwriting over the course of his career, but the key elements have remained the same: personal lyrics and strong melodies are among his absolute trademarks. His extensive and ever-growing output has contributed to ensuring that he remains a relevant artist rather than a nostalgia-driven favourite of yesteryear.
At the heart of it all is a soulfulness that reminds us that music, at its best, is not just a pleasure to listen to but also something that can be felt.
