This week’s “Something for the Weekend” presents Cold in Berlin.
The East-London based post-punk quartet make lovely noisy noise, not too distant from a stark and mashed version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Siouxsie and the Banshees and ADULT and tonight at the dutifully grimy and delightful Old Blue Last on Old Street (London), they will be launching their début album.
The album, called Give Me Walls, will officially be released by 2076 Records on Monday (November 29th) and can be picked up from their site.
The video for Give Me Walls lead single, “Destruction” was constructed from still images recorded by Dina Karklina. “Destruction” was originally released at the tail end of 2009 as a split-single with Death Cigarettes – who also happen to be Cold in Berlin.
Whatever. It doesn’t matter, because it’s still very, very good.
