Mondo Cozmo Wants You to “Feel Good” with Euphoric New Single
(October 1, 2021) Indie songsmith Mondo Cozmo (aka Josh Ostrander) releases the jubilant new single, “Feel Good,” today. “Feel Good” is the first single from Mondo Cozmo’s forthcoming album and was co-written and produced by Ostrander. “Feel Good,” features a lush, funk-driven beat, while the track’s chorus is embraced by horns, asking the rhetorical “Don’t it make you feel good?”
About “Feel Good,” Ostrander says, “Upon returning home to Los Angeles from our cancelled tour in March of 2020, I went to a grocery store and the line was around the block. I immediately went home and packed up everything and moved to the mountains. I found a cabin in a town called Twin Peaks, California. This would become my home for the next 18 months and the space where I would record the follow up to my sophomore album “New Medicine.” The first song I wrote and recorded was ‘Feel Good’ because I was sure when the goddamn pandemic was over no one was going to want to hear a sad song about the pandemic. It was just a song that made me happy when I needed it the most.” He adds, “My goal is to hear it played in a grocery store.”
“Feel Good” can be heard in the national television ad for Panera Bread, running through fall of 2022.
The video for “Feel Good” was adapted from the early 2010s popular YouTube video Phil Dancing In The Grocery Store. It features the main character Phil dancing around a grocery store to the Mondo Cozmo tune, surprising customers. The whole video has a feel-good vibe and fits perfectly with the track.
Mondo Cozmo’s sophomore album, New Medicine, was released in June 2020, and was aided and abetted by friends and family, including producer Butch Vig, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Dan Wilson, Lars Stalfors and others. New Medicine featured the singles “Come On” and “Black Cadillac.” His 2017 full-length debut, Plastic Soul, boasted the #1 single “Shine.” In addition to performing everywhere from Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo, toured alongside Bastille and Spoon, and opened for Muse. Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons joined him for a live duet on The Verve’s “Bittersweet Symphony,” while Anna Faris starred in the videos for “Hold On To Me” and “Come On,” and Paz de La Huerta starred in the video “Higher.”
