Following the recent release of their debut album Oh Really, What’s That Then? and having wowed us on numerous occasions live with the vibrant energy live, London’s Jemma Freeman and The Cosmic Something have now shared a special stripped-back live session of album track ‘What’s On Your Mind?’.
Recorded for YouTube channel Musica Ambulante – produced and filmed by Argentine music fan Joaquín Mendez Trongé -, this unique rendition of the kaleidoscopic track flows with twinkling melodies and the distinctive soaring majesty of Jemma’s vocals. Propelled by a subtle impassioned power, whilst swirling psychedelic hooks gently whirr, it’s a spine-tinglingly heartfelt offering, oozing a captivating raw emotion.

More info about Musica Ambulante:
Musica Ambulante is a YouTube channel about live music around the world. Produced and filmed by Joaquín Mendez Trongé – an Argentine guy obsessed with music and travelling – the channel strives to reflect the music scene in the cities where he’s living as a digital nomad. Joaquín – fuelled by his love for music and gigs – contacts local artist to record all type of sessions with the conductive thread not placed in the style or type of session but in his own music taste and appreciation of honest talents and undiscovered artists. Rock, reggae, soul, both acoustic or electric; they all have their place in the channel.
Since 2019 the concept of the session is to record a whole show in a sequence shot without any cuts and overdubs. In an industry overloaded with production and makeup, Musica Ambulante’s sessions are focused in transmiting the things as they really happen.
Born as the Youtube channel for an underground music radio show that Joaquín use to host in Argentina, the sessions evolved from single-songs videos with takes from the artist’s city to this long-length production 100% dedicated to the show itself and made without any kind of commercial purposes.
