Aly Cook

Midnight Cowboys

from the Horseshoe Rodeo Hotel album.

MIDNIGHT COWBOYS, is ALY’s new single release, from her HORSESHOE RODEO HOTEL album. It is co-written by ALAN JANSSON (co-writer/producer of global smash Hit OMC's HOW BIZARRE) and BRENT HAYWARD, the artist who painted the dynamic pop art cover of the HORSESHOE RODEO HOTEL album.

This Eclectic Pop/Punk Country track has a pulsing beat with rhythmic fiddle from NIK BROWN (THE WARATAHS), ethereal slide guitar from THREE DOG NIGHT’S PAUL KINGERY and distinctive haunting harmonica from the late GRAHAM BRAZIER (HELLO SAILOR). It conjures up an image of the lone Cowboy in the desert, avoiding big brother.

Complex and simple, Cook's smooth, seamless and understated vocal delivery, of the song's quirky but deep lyric, is both refreshing and memorable. Creating an idiosyncratic new sound which is difficult to define as genre specific. Much in the same way as How Bizarre, although quite different, it definitely has Jansson's radio friendly stamp.
