As far as new albums go, Cold Beat may have one of the best new albums going. While their new album War Garden dropping this Friday, they could easily have one of the better albums to get released. While they are ready to go digitally, you can stream their final prerelease single “Year Without A Shadow” is epic and without any gaze. Stream it below and fall for its exponential sound.
The song goes out on a limb from the jump. The depths at which she takes the music is extraordinary, while it’s gaze is epic. The way she takes your ears to a whole new space is something else. There’s an immediate notice here in how the song plays out and how it takes you to a new spacial arrangement. With a tone that escapes from the digital to the in your face, there’s little left here to examine. Half way through you should get the ideas from the band and be on board with whatever they offer up. The softness mixed with the layered sounds creates an overall effect that hits hard and doesn’t let up throughout.
War Garden is out digitally on all platforms. The vinyl copy can be preordered from the band here. Cold Beat is set to perform at Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, CA on November 18 and at The Regent on November 19 in Los Angeles, CA.
