Cold Cave is the experimental synthpop vessel of Wesley Eisold, Dominick Fernow, and Jennifer Clavin. Taking cues from ’80s post-punk, goth, and synthpop household names like The Cure, New Order, Joy Division, and Depeche Mode, the NYC-based band’s dark outings provide an aural tour-de-force of pounding synths, muscular rhytmhs, resonant baritone vocals, atmospheric industrial beats, and post-punk vibes.
Cherish The Light Years, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Love Comes Close, comes out on April the 5th and boasts an eclectic line-up of contributors, such as Nick Zinner (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Matt Sweeney (Chavez, Zwan), Daryl Palumbo (Glassjaw), and Sean Martin (Hatebreed). Fueled by creative lyricism, cinematic synthscapes, and bouncing melodies, this transcendentally brilliant sophomore effort continues to explore the art of darkness in a way that will certainly please today’s black-clad youth. Listen to it now or the spiderman will have you for dinner tonight.
