Cold Cave returns with the new single “The Idea of Love”—a track that reverberates and distorts the sound displayed during the Cremations era, and features a stark and stylish video by videographer Amy Lee. This is the second release of new material from Wesley Eisold this year—continuing the love theme begun with the “Nothing Is True But You” single released this past Valentine’s Day—and following the late 2015 release of the Rebellion Is Over collaborative cassette with Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and Black Rain.
Watch the video for ‘The Idea of Love” below:
The record will be released via the Heartworm Press on September 9th as a 500 copy limited edition 2 song picture disc, with the track Rue the Day as the b-side.
“The veils are thinner than ever on the latest Cold Cave single. Tracing the lines of your palm, telling you what’s to come while reminding you of the sounds that led you here in the first place. The dreamlands you first arrive to may be a nightmare after all. Leather jackets, narrow red lit hallways, and strangers hands lead you down. Forever. Waking up in a foreign room with the windows blacked out. Implog, Chrome, Metal Urbain stick out of the records that litter the floor. There’s a Genet paperback on the nightstand resting with a bottle of wine and an ashtray overflowing with lipstick-stained filters. “Hiroshima Mon Amour” plays on the TV and you suddenly realize there’s a mannequin sleeping besides you.
The restless energy of Cremations lingers around like an old ghost you can’t kick while you nervously wait for the sun to rise. Falling in love while breaking hearts in the same moment.”
