After more than ten years apart, critically acclaimed purveyors of rich, dark pop music Cousteau have returned.
CousteauX is the distinctive, magical voice of Irishman Liam McKahey and the beautiful, bittersweet songs of Davey Ray Moor. When Liam sings Davey’s songs something mercurial happens. Theirs is an evocative, romantic blend reminiscent of David Bowie, Nick Cave, Scott Walker and Burt Bacharach.
In 2001, Cousteau swept the world. Signed to Island Records founder Chris Blackwell’s Palm Pictures imprint, the group sold more than 300,000 records worldwide, perpetuated by glowing reviews and appearances on renowned broadcasts like The Late Late Show in the US and Later With Jools Holland in the UK. Cousteau sound-tracked a global Nissan advertising campaign and enjoyed three well-received albums and five years touring the globe together.
