Cuco and Clairo Come Together To Share "Drown"
After becoming fast friends over a love of each other's music, Cuco and Clairo have come together to write a new single that they are sharing today. "Drown" is part of Yours Truly and adidas originals Songs From Scratch series and follows the release of Cuco's Chiquito EP and Clairo's diary 001. It's a catchy tune produced by Ricky Reed that features Cuco's easy progression from English to Spanish and Clairo's dreamy melodies. You can watch the 'Making Of' video here, directed by James Alexander Warren.
Cuco will also be playing a series of dates across the US with Rex Orange County this summer and Kali Uchis in the autumn. He’ll also head across the to the UK for his debut London show at Camden Assembly on September 18th 2018, tickets available here.
Cuco, born Omar Banos, first began playing music at the age of 8 years old, at 16, Cuco was eager to start independently releasing his own music once finishing high school. In Summer of 2016, Cuco released his first mixtape Wannabewithu - a collection of teenage heartbreak over abstract chords, lo fi synths, ambient guitars, punchy drums, and lead trumpets that resonated with thousands of music lovers everywhere. Later at the top of 2017, Cuco welcomed his newfound fans with a follow up mixtape Songs4u. The release of his first bilingual track "Lo Que Siento" has moved the needle tremendously with over 3.5 million Spotify streams and counting.
