We proudly present the third and final installment of our Room 205 episode with Cold Showers, featuring a gritty, mind-scrapingly loud performance of “I Don’t Mind.”
Jonathan Weinberg, Jessie Clavin, Brian Davila and Renee Adams formed Cold Showers in late summer 2010, (with recent addition of Chris King supporting on guitar). Their pop songs are shaded by darker overtones, offering despairing minimalist lyrics that bring a sense of a bleaker tomorrow, today. The dreamy, angular and sometimes aggressive guitar work, layered with primitive percussion and low flying synthesizers coalesce in a driving darkwave sound. Satisfying influences from Ultravox and Savage Republic to Joy Division, The Pixies and Los Angeles-era X, Cold Showers create the ideal soundtrack to fall in-and-out of love.
Special thanks goes to Cold Showers for making this episode of Room 205 possible. We couldn’t have made such a lovely episode come to life without your songs, goodwill and friendship. Thanks also to director Michael Reich, set designer Tamarra Younis, audio engineer Jonathan Gilbert, DP Jeffrey Peters and editor Forrest Borie.
