Cold Showers Performs “So I Can Grow” in Room 205
In their first Room 205 installment, the aptly named Cold Showers deliver an icy hot, uptempo performance of “So I Can Grow” from their forthcoming debut album.
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.
For this supremely entertaining episode of Room 205, director Michael Reich and set designer Tamarra Younis worked with director of photography Jeffrey Peters and editor Forrest Borie to create an arresting video triptych of a Victorian rose garden, brutalist architecture and negative white space. From finery to form to finality, this might be one of the finest episodes we’ve collaborated on yet.
