Review: Cold Beat is a San Francisco-based quartet fronted by Hannah Lew (synths, vocals) with Kyle King (synths, guitar), Luciano Talpini Aita (synths) and Sean Monaghan (guitar). Formed in 2013 the band has released three albums and two EPs. 'A Simple Reflection' is a 7-song collection of Eurythmics covers, yet feels just as personal as any of their original material. While digging through a collection of 12?s for her record shop Contact Records, Lew stumbled across the earliest Eurythmics B-sides and was floored. This lead to the discovery of their debut album 'In The Garden'. Annie Lennox's abstract and poetic lyrics really struck a chord with Hannah. What had started out as a single cover quickly snowballed into a full blown obsession. The synth and drum programming resonated with her songwriting process, so reimagining them was very creatively fulfilling. The covers on this EP are simultaneously dynamic and atmospheric post-punk that plays to Lew's ethereal vocals and King's crystalline guitar. All songs have been mixed by Mikey Young (Total Control) and mastered by George Horn at Fantasy Studios. The record is housed in a jacket designed by Eloise Leigh, which features pink and purple clouds that evoke a dreamy softness and DIY playfulness and photos Lew in her best Lennox-inspired drag. Each copy includes a postcard with photos and notes. "Sometimes a song seems to sing just for you, as if someone knows your most inner thoughts and feelings and has found a way to describe them effortlessly" - Hannah Lew

Review: San Francisco electronic pop outfit Cold Beat make their debut on the ever-impressive DFA, one of the finest imprints in all of synth-dom. And what a triumph it is, polished and sharp and infinitely daring, making for more proof of what fans will have already known based on previous outings, including records on the rightly revered 1980s-inspired Dark Entries label. Think Eurythmics, Depeche Mode and Ladyhawke and you'll be edging toward the right ball park. There are moments of depression and stark moods, for example on "Paper", guitars juxtaposed with keyboards to create the wonderfully contrasting "Prism", and pedal-to-metal pace pushing "Gloves" forward to a destination that's some sort of future read through the past. Don't think that suggests pastiche, though - this is a record very much born from fresh ideas and a desire to explore pastures new.
