Aaron Mangle is the mastermind behind Halifax’s garage darlings known as COUSINS. The line-up is a shifting cast of Mangle, Pat Ryan and Leigh Dotey with others coming and going as needed. The cheerful trio (or duo or quartet) make feelgood rock ‘n’ roll that seems as nostalgic as neon-framed sunglasses, 35mm slides and cassette tapes (go figure that they have incorporated all three of these into their band somehow). Lo-fi and solid songwriting is the mandate of their work, not to mention a wonderful demeanour that makes them instantly loveable.
