New York/L.A based dark wave/cold wave act Cold Cave have premiered the video for their brand new single "The Idea of Love".
The single will be released as a 500 copy limited edition 2 song picture disc, b/with ''Rue the Day'', on September 9th via the Heartworm Press. Pre-order your copy here.
The Idea Of Love is Cold Cave at it's most passionate, coolest, punkest and rawest, recalling the early primitive recordings that made up the Cremations release, even using much of the same salvaged and battered thrift store equipment as used on those early recordings. It should be clear by now that Cold Cave is existing in their own world, releasing music in any format and at any time they choose. An evolution by it's own rules, laughing happily outside of the tired norm of music industry convention.
The video was directed by Amy Lee. Watch it below.
London funk polyrhythmic/new wave young four piece Sticky have aired the video for their energetic debut single "Set Sail".
The track is a real sign of change within the younger part of the music industry, showing a real no-nonsense approach was simple clever production simmering guitars stabbing though funked out rhythms. With a sound straight out of a late 70s New York dive bar and a UK tour looming over them later in the year the single 'Set Sail' is a great example of what "sticky" do best and a reminder of a more interesting time in music.
The single is out today (August 29) b/w Bengoshi Mind via Fort Records. Grab it here.
