Cold Cave - "Black Boots"

cold cave

Here's a very chilly, very minimalist new single from Cold Cave, "Black Boots," in which Wes Eisold and company invite you to make any number of postpunk comparisons - a stripped-down, Gothed-up reinvention of New Order's "Blue Monday," Joy Division with a drum machine, etc. It's a sexy, dark jam that sounds like wintertime film-noir, dark and empty streets bathed in yellow light, thanks in part to Eisold's echoed croons and that throbbing bass backbeat. Check it out - "Black Boots" is is the a-side on a new 7" the band are putting out themselves, you can pick it up now on their website.
