Cosmo Jarvis “Gay Pirates” Video
More than a moving song and video, “Gay Pirates” is an honest look at two lovers and the discrimination that they faced at a time in history that seems to have passed…or has it? Hundreds of years after the glimpse of society Cosmo Jarvis exposes in the track, “Gay Pirates” is focused on breaking down the homophobia that still remains today. Cosmo Jarvis has created a timeless pop song, not only from a historical/socio-political perspective, but also from a melodic and lyrical one.
In Cosmo’s native U.K., the “Gay Pirates” video received over 70,000 views in the first three days after it was released, just behind artists like Rhianna and Black Eyed Peas in terms of weekend views, and Cosmo Jarvis’ YouTube channel has received over a half a million views in the last year.
“Gay Pirates” is the first single from Cosmo’s upcoming sophomore release, Is the World Strange or Am I Strange? The album is scheduled to be released in the early part of 2011. Cosmo’s music has already received notice from publications like NME, and he has performed with acts like Muse, Panic at the Disco and Gym Class Heroes.
