Cold Cave is the solo project of LA and NYC-based musician Wesley Eisold. Previously the vocalist in numerous other projects. Falling somewhere between darkwave, goth, noise, and synthpop, Cold Cave transposes dark nihilism and gloomy despair onto Nitzer Ebb beats and New Order-like melodies. This seemingly dark sound is juxtaposed against Eisold’s positive outlook on life. The contrasts clash elegantly as the listener is taken on a journey of sonic transcendence through the dark and into the light.
Cold Cave have announced a new album. It’s called Fate In Seven Lessons and it’s due out June 11th via Heartworm Press. To tease the release, the gothic duo have just shared a music video for the single “Prayer From Nowhere”
