An acronym for “Confusing Mix Of Nations” and pronounced as in “C’mon,” Josh da Costa and Jamen Whitelock formed CMON after disbanding their previous project, Regal Degal. CMON marks a new musical direction for the duo, who are excited to share a new single to celebrate the announcement, accompanied by a fun, phantasmagoric video directed by Geneva Jacuzzi.
“Coo” is a song on a deft, strange journey. Josh da Costa and Jamen Whitelock pilot by their own obsequious logic between mid-'70s AOR gold and mid-'80s bass journeys, their voices a little star-crossed as they emerge from the club and find their way home.

As Josh da Costa explains, “'Coo' was the first track we made together that marked a real departure from our old band Regal Degal into what would become CMON, so we're happy to celebrate it with a fun video.” He adds, “We're also really happy to have worked with Geneva again - making a video free from narrative and focused on mood + performance as well as creative editing suits a song that is less about thinking and more about feeling. It's time to get wavy.”
