Lean Into Your Darknesses With Pure Bathing Culture’s “Pray For Rain” Video

It’s totally danceable, too.

August 24, 2015

Portland GEN F alum Pure Bathing Culture will return this fall with Pray For Rain, the follow-up to their immensely pretty 2013 debut Moon Tides. Our first taste of that project comes by way of the album's title-track, "Pray For Rain," a serving of 1980s synth-pop that is equal parts danceable and devastating (like when Sarah Versprille sings, Are you cut in two? Cut all the way through?)

Today, the duo deliver a dimly lit video that looks straight out of an '80s psycho thriller, the sort that might have starred a young Michael Douglas. "The video is about someone going where ever they need to go in order to get where they're going and sometimes this is about excess; you have be who you are and sometimes you need to chase the darkness," explained Versprille and Daniel Hindman in an email to The FADER. "We're all related, it's all about our interactions. And we're doing this with each other all the time. Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse."
