Cold Beat play at El Rio 08.15

Cold Beat’s latest work Chaos By Invitation takes us back to the early day of a genre that today is rampant in the indie rock soundscape: dream pop. In single "62 Moons," an upbeat, bread and butter rhythm section, reminiscent of electronic artists of the post-punk years, supports a simple arrangement where electric guitars drenched in reverb blend to perfection with bleepy synths that scream "'80s!", while celestial female vocals indulge in ethereal, droney melodies. Cold Beat will be reaching the end of their Cali-based tour this month after a San Fransisco show at El Rio on August 15. - Pearse Devlin

Cold Beat play at El Rio 08.15

Cold Beat will be reaching the end of their Cali-based tour this month after a San Fransisco show on August 15. The band will perform their latest work, Chaos By Invitation, an album released this past April that sounds like a combination of modern day electropop and post-punk. The album creats this sonic concoction in an interesting way, with basslines and electronic pianos constructed in a post-punk style, but delivered in a modern electronic and pop manner. This mix of celestial and punching electronic pianos gives the 80s-influenced project quite the contemporary feel. Check out the track "62 Moons", a track that does just this (and is also at times reminiscent of dreampop band Beach House), below. - Pearse Devlin

Cold Beat Male Gaze and Mall Walk Open For The Soft Moon's Local Shows

The Soft Moon will be making a stop in the Bay Area on January 29th at The New Parish and January 31st at Slim's. Local bands Mall Walk and Cold Beat will be the supporting artists for the Oakland show and Male Gaze and DJ Omar Perez will be supporting the San Francisco gig with the Los Angeles based post industrial band, Sextile playing both nights. We love to see local bands earn great support opportunities like this!

The Soft Moon’s synthy, gothic album, Deeper is comprised of tracks that expose listeners to the dark imagery that wallpaper a stunning, manic mind. Deeper isn’t just your average dark, Bahaus-esque sound but replicates the kind of darkness that can only be heard miles from lights and civilization- the blackest of the black nights. With creepy, gorgeous layered beats, Deeper's tracks all have a similar sense of urgency equipped with quick stacatto beats. The haunting, distorted vocals layered with the foggy beats establish an anxious mood that you want to dance to. You’ll definitely want to come out to these shows as The Soft Moon will be performing his intense, dance floor-worthy remixes. Come out and dance into the darkness! -Lindsay Stickney

 

 





Cold Beat Releases New Single In Anticipation Of New Album

The San Francisco electro-pop group, Cold Beat has released a new single entitled, Spirals. This bellowing electronic ballad has been shared in anticipation of the band's upcoming full length album, Into the Air. Into the Air is due out on September 4th on Crime on the Moon Records.

""Spirals" feels like one of the more honest songs I've written. It's a song describing an emotional state of surrender. I really allowed myself to be vulnerable and express some feelings I might not have had access to in a normal band setting. It's more intimate. Stepping away from guitars and leaning more towards electronic instruments seems like a natural evolution for the band right now." Hannah Lew, singer-songwriter of Cold Beat

Check out their new single and make sure you pick up an album upon its release!
