Cold Showers, a band formed in Los Angeles, CA in 2010, fuses the brash power of the shoegazers with the smoky compulsions of the no-wavers -- Cold Showers would fit comfortably within the dusty catalog of Factory Records, if only for an industrial subtlety in terms of electronics and acoustics. A piston-precision rhythm section drives all these loud, crafty pop songs. This is the pervasive pop mode against which Cold Showers cast themselves, but they aren't fired in steel to the dark side. Founding members Jonathan Weinberg, Jessie Clavin, Brian Davila, Renee Adams and Chris King, added since, have a lumbering, sometimes terrifying beast of a band - we'd be remiss not to follow its caustic, addictive trek.
Love and Regret, the band's debut album hones the band's stark sound, akin to washed out rock, reverberated though a heartbroken echo. Following up singles on Art Fag and Mexican Summer, Cold Showers' fragmented, chilling sound writes itself a full length masterpiece, fusing gloomy hooks and catchy post-punk signatures that stop any soul in its tracks. Catch Cold Showers when they hit the road this fall touring with The Soft Moon (Captured Tracks) and hear first Love and Regret single "BC" below.
Cold Showers' Love and Regret (Dais)will be released Oct 9, 2012.
