Screenshot 2018-05-23 at 3.17.30 PM

Cozmic is a name that has been on our radar for a little while now. His infectious tunes have turned our heads and opened our ears, as he impresses within every listen. His new video for “Not Ready for Summer,” is quickly on the way to becoming our seasonal anthem. With a fresh sound, Cozmic takes us a way on his musical journey, and we’re ready to dive deeper…


Tell us the story of this song, why did you choose to visualize this song specifically?

It was inspired by a situation that one of my good friends was going through. She had a serious relationship that seemed to be going well but even though she and her boyfriend loved each other a ton, they had different values and priorities in life. I was supporting her through the turbulence of the relationship. But they ended up breaking up right before summer was starting. All her friends wanted to go do and plan fun summer stuff like going to the beach, going on road-trips, hanging out in New York, partying but she was not interested cause she was processing this major breakup. Even though its such an exciting time of year if your mind is still reeling in a break-up or some pain, it makes that time of year even harder. It’s also a reminder that the fun stuff is only fun when it’s with the people who you love—your partner, your crew, your family. I wanted to visualize an emotional story that so many people can relate to but with an unexpected twist–the reason they’re not together for summer is that the guy is on another planet,literally!

What was the inspiration behind this video (visuals, storyline, etc.)?

I wanted to bring to life falling in love through shared interests and experiences. The couple meets in grad school and they’re both astronomy and science nerds. The guy has been prepping for a huge opportunity to go to into outer space, eventually gets it and has to leave the love of his life. It’s inspired by retro sci-fi space romance films, which I love and also ties into my name, Cozmic.


What was the process of making this video?



It was super fun and crazy. it started with brainstorming and finalizing the concept together. I felt like we shot for 3 days straight, barely sleeping. A ton of it was shot in the middle of the night in Orange County, California. I worked with an incredible team of super professional and talented young filmmakers who were a couple years out of the Chapman University film school. They were perfectionists and pulled out all the stops. My co-star Audrey Neal was incredible to work with. We had great on-camera chemistry and really captured the feeling of students falling in love and being tragically separated by SPACE.
