You & Me & Infinity is the new EP by Cold Cave available June 1 digitally and on 10” picture disc vinyl from Heartworm Press. Cold Cave continues to perfect their own brand of dark synth pop that manages to sound retro and futuristic at the same time. Four romantic existential anthems for the disenchanted daydreamers, including the glimmering pop tune Glory. Mixed by Chris Coady and mastered by Bob Weston, the new EP’s release coincides with their 2018 North American tour featuring support by Black Marble and Choir Boy.
Cold Cave are an experimental electronic pop group from Philadelphia and New York City who make melodic synthscapes with jackhammer beats. They acknowledge the dark roots of synthesizer music as well as its potential for making the brightest pop with their hard songs celebrating the contradictory beauty of the human condition. As with their ancestors, for Cold Cave the synthesizer is as much about mayhem as it is melody. It is a means of conveying, via dissonance, ideas about disturbance and decay as effectively as the harshest guitar rock. It comes as no surprise to learn that mainman Wesley Eisold is a writer with a past in hardcore punk and noise bands. Cold Cave strive for balance, between the ugly and the beautiful, between rupture and rapture.
On September 30, 2016 Black Marble released their second full-length, It’s Immaterial. Their first for Ghostly, It’s Immaterial follows up their EP Weight Against the Door (Hardly Art) and highly acclaimed debut full-length A Different Arrangement (Hardly Art).
“Choir Boy” was what the kids called singer/songwriter Adam Klopp in his early teens when he fronted punk cover bands in Cleveland, Ohio. An intended insult, the label seemed fair and fitting in a way, given Klopp’s religious upbringing and angelic voice. After high school, Adam left Ohio for college in Utah. While his career as a student would prove short-lived, he integrated into Provo and SLC’s underground music and art scene, left religion behind, and called his new band Choir Boy.
