Cold Cave are a quartet by way of Philadelphia and New York, led by hardcore punk musician Wesley Eisold (American Nightmare/Some Girls/Give Up the Ghost). Rounding out the band are former members of Xiu Xiu, Parts and Labor, and Prurient. I’ve instantly fallen in love with Cold Cave’s beautifully haunting synthpop.
“Love Comes Close instantly sold out when it was released in August and will be re-issued by Matador on November 3rd. The warm, rich synth pop sounds are laced with equal parts of romance and nihilism. Cold Cave is possibly the only band ever to have been compared to both Erasure and Whitehouse.”
