Talk Talk, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Teardrop Explodes, and Brian Eno also led him to sharpen his skillful electronic compositions -- eclectic instrumentals and spiraled programming -- and an urgency to make an album. Kosten didn't find much promise in One Little Indian however, and his debut album Closer Colder was not thoroughly promoted, leaving Kosten to find professional solace in Tony Morley's Leaf imprint. Faultline's initial debut Closer Colder was issued in fall 1999. Teaming with artists such as the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne and R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe, Kosten put together a half vocal/half instrumental release in 2002 called Your Love Means Everything.
