Ahead of their upcoming European tour with Tamaryn, Cold Showers have dropped another gorgeous video off of their forthcoming third studio album Motionless—a record that already shows promise as being one of the best releases of 2019.
The aptly named “Shine” is a warm sunkissed daydream of shimmering keys, guitars saxophone, with the main vocals channeling The Psychedelic Fur’s Richard Butler if he were signed to late 80s Creation Records or 4AD, and candy-coated backing vocals that are reminiscent of Kate Pearson of The B-52’s.
The video was shot and directed by Travis Waddell, featuring dancer Nicola Collie movements cut with scenes of the Santa Cruz coast.
“‘Shine’s textures are a reverent nod to MTV-era music video etherea,” Waddell explains. “The 16mm footage shot between Bolinas and Point Reyes backdrops Nicola Collie’s movements, a performance so immersive she nearly threw out her neck. From concept to completion it spans over half a year’s work, which allowed it to reform and define itself.”
Watch the video below:
The debut of “Shine” follows the Cold Shower’s recent premiere of the video for “Faith”, which is the lead single off Motionless, which sees its release on Dais Records, May 24th.
Motionless will be available on both compact disc and vinyl LP (with limited edition colored vinyl variants), as well as all digital formats. The LP comes in an embossed jacket with cover artwork by noted Los Angeles based artist, Robbie Simon.
Cold Showers will be embarking on their 21 date European tour with Tamaryn this May. Among the dates listed is a festival appearance at Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig.
