Cold Cave's "Nausea, the Earth and Me" Is a Darkwave Banger

Cold Cave has just premiered "Nausea, the Earth and Me," a song from their upcoming LP compilation, Full Cold Moon. The track features a pulsating backbeat, icy synth lines, and Wes Eisold famously (deliberately) deadened vocals. 

The song is being released by Deathwish Inc. – a label known for hardcore acts like Cold World and Blacklisted – but "Nausea, the Earth and Me" is a certifiable darkwave banger in the spirit of :wumpscut: and Front 242.

A veteran of such punk hardcore groups as Some Girls and the aforementioned American Nightmare, Eisold began Cold Cave in 2007. With Eisold the only constant member of the project, Cold Cave has released two studio albums, and handful of EPs and singles to date. On the live front, Cold Cave has shared the stage with Sonic Youth, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and Nine Inch Nails, among others.

Hitting stores on June 16th, the Full Cold Moon EP will feature recordings originally individually released in 2013 and presented as one collection.
