Titled “Promised Land,” the track was mixed by Chris Coady and mastered by Bob Weston, and showcases COLD CAVE at the peak of their powers; propulsive, synth-heavy darkwave that marries vocalist Wes Eisold’s signature stormy croon with Amy Lee’s lustrous and shimmery timbre. Check out the enigmatic new music video directed by Travis Shinn and Jeremy Danger on YouTube.
Already one of the year’s most anticipated releases, Elizabeth Colour Wheel’s debut album Nocebo is a masterclass in both aggression and reflection. Backed by San Fransisco-based label The Flenser, the experimental five-piece is poised to dominate 2019 with its thunderous blend of shoegaze, metal, and noise rock.
