In “Dry Ice,” Pure X singer Nate Grace takes his turn at the ol “she’s as cold as ice” trope (She looks at me, who knows what she’s thinking/ That pretty face isn’t letting nothin through) but actually she’s not even as cold as ice, she’s as cold as dry ice, which, you will remember from grade school science class, is freezing cold but gives off the effect of being hot enough to boil. Quite an extended metaphor! Check out our profile on Pure X in the current FADER #74. Pleasure is out August 22nd on Acéphale.
