Our appetite for anything remotely wavey / minimal synthy is at an all-time low - yeah, even lower than the last time we said that! - so it says a LOT that we’re still capable of getting excited about this Coldreams 7”. Oh it’s a corker… rare, impossibly dreamy and vulnerable…the sound of obsessive melancholia... what happens when cold wave meets the sting of hot tears!
Quite honestly if you were to only have three or four records of this ilk in your collection (and take this from someone who’s recently sold a fair stack, you really DO only need three or four), this would HAVE to be one of them. Some people swear by ‘Morning Rain’ - which is undeniably ace - but for me it’s all about ‘Eyes’, which effortlessly crystallises the feeling of being dumped by the love of your life - the desperation, the confusion and THEN the bottomless well of sadness - info five minutes of blue eternal pop perfection. No home etc etc.
Reissue 7", limited to 500 copies.
