Pure Bathing Culture
If there were ever a name that foretold what to expect from a band, it would be Pure Bathing Culture. Former members of the folky Vetiver, the Portland-via-Brooklyn BTW alumni’s new output has some ethereal textures, but it’s far too lucid and almost-cleansing to be born of an astral plane. It’s a cheeky way to look at it, but members Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman are music students of the earth, taking influence from the sky (astrology) and water (yacht rock). Birth charts and boat shoes are uncommon companions, but it’s the confluence of soothsaying they lure out of the two that make the connection crystal clear. – Claire
