" If The Wonders hailed from Hawthorne, California instead of Erie, Pennsylvania, and dropped acid on the regular they might sound something like Cotillon. Which, in my world, is the highest of compliments. "
Rebecca Willa Davis (NYLON MAGAZINE)
There's no stopping Post-Surf/Garage Pop band, Cotillon. Their debut EP, Votive Flower, was released in October, and they're already presenting their second offering - the less heartbroken 'White Roses' EP. This second dose still carries the same moodiness, pep and youthful vigor, but with more cohesive, stylized production, and more assured songwriting. Standouts "Talk to Her" and "Tijuana" are filled with frontman Jordan Corso's slacker vocal moments and the amazing guitar work from Zach Miller we loved on the first EP. 'White Roses' is equal parts nostalgia, peyote-drenched romanticism, laissez-faire francophilia, and post-post-modern anxiety. -Jacqueline Caruso (the Deli)
this is really power-pop like it's supposed to be — hooky, raw and cheerfully bitter beneath the cuteness, just like Alex Chilton used to make. A Corso lyric such as "I don't have much, but I have a true heart" may sound like something Jonathan Richman would sing very sincerely, but Cotillon's recent Votive Flower EP is soaked in plenty of sarcasm, too. Corso's got a voice somewhere between Daniel Johnston and The Only Ones' super-sneerer Peter Perrett. In songs like "I Wanna Move to Paris" or "Dream Girl/Infection Suite," he pours a bottle of drain cleaner into the human heart: "You gave me an infection, just like you meant to," goes one opening line. That's not love, but it sounds true nonetheless. Chris Ziegler (LA Weekly)
