If you told us a couple years ago that a hardcore dude and another guy known for making brutal noise would link up to make the saddest goth-dance-pop we've heard, we probably would have been like, Cool! That sounds great! And then we would get really bummed because we'd have to wait a couple years for planets to properly align themselves so that could happen. But now it has, and now Cold Cave exists. People with backgrounds in dissonant noise turning to pop, turning down times into bubbly keyboard riffs and ultra-catchy choruses, is the future alternate pop world where this album could pretty much just sit on the radio for months. This shit is all singles, dudes.
