Cold Beat is schedule to release their second record, Up In the Air, on the label, Crime on the Moon this September 4th! Three weeks from today! This project blurs the lines between synth-pop, shoe-gaze, and indie rock. I’ll go into more detail about the record in its entirety when I put out an album review. All I can say is their newest single, “Spirals”, is my favorite track on the record. Those synthesizers. Hannah Lew, the bassist and singer/songwriter for the group said about “Spirals”:
“Spirals” feels like one of the more honest songs I’ve written. It’s a song describing an emotional state of surrender. I really allowed myself to be vulnerable and express some feelings I might not have had access to in a normal band setting. It’s more intimate. Stepping away from guitars and leaning more towards electronic instruments seems like a natural evolution for the band right now.
