Pure Bathing Culture cover Jessie Ware’s “Wildest Moments”

By on December 11, 2013

Pure Bathing Culture are excited to share their wistful, sparkling cover of Jessie Ware’s 2012 hit, “Wildest Moments,” premiering the track with Rookie Magazine.  Tinges of Elizabeth Fraser’s (Cocteau Twins) incomparable vibrato shine through in this luxurious version of the song.  It has been a big year for PBC, having released their full-length debut to much critical acclaim, and sharing stages with the likes of Father John Misty, Widowspeak, Caveman, and more.  The band will hit the road again in January, embarking on a national co-headlining tour with La Luz.  The full list of tour dates is below.

Having backed folk rock revisionist Andy Cabic in Vetiver, New Yorkers Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman partnered up and moved West in 2011, settling in Portland, Oregon (Versprille also sings on Foxygen’s latest LP and Hindman adds his sprawling guitar work to Damien Jurado’s excellent Marqopa). Building off their past experiences as musical collaborators, in a short time the duo have created a sound that is undeniably their own: soaring synths, chiming keyboards, and shimmering electric guitars move in lockstep with bouncing drum machines. Sarah’s crystalline voice floats on top of it all with divine purpose. It’s a sound that looks back momentarily for inspiration — Talk Talk, Prefab Sprout, Cocteau Twins — but then fixes its gaze firmly on the present.
