Pure Bathing Culture

Moon Tide

For fans of The Sundays, Warpaint and Talk Talk. Pure Bathing Culture are a Portland based duo and are the latest signings to Memphis Industries. With Dan Hindman's immaculately clean electric guitar and Sarah Versprille's airy but distinct vocals, the album, which - like the self-titled EP - was recorded with Richard Swift at his Cottage Grove, Oregon, studio. It's the compassion and warmth in Pure Bathing Culture that set them apart. The music is uplifting. It invites self-reflection. It never feels alienating. 'Pendulum' is a perfect mid-tempo album opener that pulses and shines. Other standout tracks from the album - 'Dream The Dare', 'Twins', 'Scotty' and 'Golden Girl' - are slices of reverb-drenched, soulful, danceable electro- pop that musically and lyrically tap into an introspective worship of the natural and psychic mysteries that surround us. Pure Bathing Culture's debut album Moon Tides is optimistic modern music for souls who seek to explore the infinite.
