‘Darkwave’ poseur Wesley Eisold credits dead French poet Tristan Corbiere as the muse for Cold Cave’s new track ‘A Little Death To Laugh’, his first studio contrivance since 2011′s ‘Cherish The Light Years’.
Much the same as that LP; it’s a spiny, jutting structure hinging on the chill precipice of Eisold’s voice; which stabs at the spaces between his 1980s-era idols (Smith, Gahan to name two) in a guiltless funereal eulogy.
Traditionally Eisold’s solo concern, an all-new fleshier Cold Cave (as now counts Samhain’s London May, AFI’s Hunter Burgan, LCD Soundystem/Melvins’ David Scott Stone and Blood Brothers’ Cody Votolato) will release ‘A Little Death To Laugh’ as part of a seven-inch single that’s available to order now.
But if you don’t have the $10 to do that, you can always just listen to it over and over via YouTube:
