Pure Bathing Culture EP
Details Pure Bathing Culture EP
Memphis Industries is proud to announce the signing of Pure Bathing Culture, Portland based duo Sarah Versprille (vocals, keys) and Daniel Hindman (bvs and guitars). Their debut will be a self titled EP set for release digitally and on 12” in November 2012.
A bit of background. In 2011 Sarah and Dan packed up their Brooklyn lives, moved to Portland and realized that it was time to put a name to a batch of songs they’d been working on — Pure Bathing Culture was born.
Through various serendipitous connections, multi-instrumentalist and producer Richard Swift (Secretly Canadian) heard their early demos and immediately invited them to record with him at his National Freedom studio in Cottage Grove, Oregon.
The fruits of this recording session comprise their self titled EP, an elegant collection of four beautifully songs, constructed with smooth melodies embodying the nostalgia of soft soul inflected 80s pop but with a freshness all of their own.
Stand out tracks include Gainesville, inspired by the name of a town in Florida and is, according to Sarah, “about a friend who passed away in motorcycle accident in Peru who was living a pretty wild life” and Ivory Coast, a “positive reflection on one’s obsession with their muse – how far someone may be willing to go to be in touch with the thing they love the most”.
The band are currently working on their debut LP for 2013. Live the band expand to a 3 or 4 piece and dates are to be announced.
