US Indie legends, Cold War Kids have released a brand new video for their recent single “So Tied Up”, featuring the up-and-coming UK singer/songwriter Bishop Briggs.
The tracks a stomping, gospel-infused number that shines a light on everyday struggle (“Love is a twisted game and no one ever wins”) but undeniably burns with the promise of hope. The video is about the tension and struggle of relationships. On one side there’s the sweetness on the surface and on the other the violence that bubbles underneath, it works as a metaphor for all of our love lives .
LA Divine also features the tracks, “Wilshire Protest” which contemplates LA’s culture of isolation while the hazy and distorted “LA River” captures a dreamlike desperation. LA Divine merges artful, hook-minded production with Cold War Kids’ classic post-punk grit. And in his lyrics, Willett offers both raw vulnerability and layered complexity, bringing his heart-on-sleeve sensibilities to songs exploring long-lasting love.
Cold War Kids are Nathan Willett, Matt Maust, Joe Plummer, Matthew Schwartz, and David Quon. Formed in 2004 in Fullerton, CA, the band has sold more than 800,000 adjusted albums, over two million singles, and racked up nearly 200 million streams to date.
