Cold Showers have unveiled their new single and video “Shine” today. Director Travis Waddell  describes, “‘Shine‘s’ textures are a reverent nod to MTV-era music video etherea. The 16mm footage shot between Bolinas and Point Reyes backdrops Nicola Collie’s movements, a performance so immersive she nearly threw her neck out.”


Motionlesswields a more developed pop sound that is familiar to followers, yet more sophisticated and evolved than their previous works. Having traversed the realm of synth-laced post punk expertly for close to a decade, Motionless is the band’s ode to their pop forbearers, their goth-like precedent enhanced with ambient narratives, acoustic overlays and compelling guest female vocals. Enlisting long-time collaborator Tony Bevilacqua (The Distillers) to co-write the album, Cold Showers expand their boundaries and let their creative mastery come to the forefront. The result is a warmly melodic, experimental and evocative pop record.

After releasing singles on Mexican Summer and Art Fag RecordsCold Showerssigned with Dais Records and released their debut LP, Love and Regret in the summer of 2012. With driving bass lines, hypnotic guitar riffs, tom-heavy drums, and deep melodic vocals, Love and Regret was met with industry praise and critical acclaim including synchs on hit television series 13 Reasons Why and How to Get Away with Murder.

Now on MotionlessCold Showers’ most expressive and decisive record, the band find themselves looking inward and taking control of their creative process, while retaining all of their unique songwriting signatures. Recorded in their own studio in LA with band member Chris King at the production helm, each selection on Motionless sounds like a line drawing that quickly becomes a technicolor collage of crashing shoegazed reverberation.

Motionless sees its release May 24 on Dais Records. For more info or to pre-order, go here. The band have confirmed a hometown record release show July 11 at Echoplex, just after their European tour. See below for a full list of tour dates.
