Frogtoon Music - Song Info: Cousins

Keyboardist Rostam Batmanglij Told Rolling Stone "'Cousins' Is A Song That We Recorded In Mexico City. It's Got Probably The Most Demanding Bass Part Chris Baio Has Wrote For Himself And Probably The Most Demanding Drum Part Chris Tomson Ever Did For Himself So It's A Demanding Song. Whereas 'Horchata ' Was A Laidback Slice Of California Pop The "Cousins" Groove Kicks Off Fast And The Energy Never Stops With Rapid Fire Drums And Frenzied Guitars." Source Cousins Songfacts .
