COLD CAVE - THE IDEA OF LOVE

A lover of romantic depression, Cold Cave, the moniker for the music of Wesley Eisold, is also an author and runs the publishing house Heartworm Press. The artisan wearing multiple hats has grasped impressive control in most if not all ways you can imagine.

Suffered from extreme depression for years, Eisold has been working around with his missing left hand by cloaking and relying on programming during shows. But in a recent Pitchfolk interview, he revealed that he got a prosthetic limb, and insisted it match his all-black-everything attire. “[The doctor] kept trying to convince me to match my skin tone, because that’s what people do-- they get the arms to blend in so people won’t notice," Eisold says. “But I didn’t want that. I want people to notice now.” Needless to say, this is indeed a breakthrough emotionally and artistically for Eisold. This is forceful inspiration for us fans, Cold Cave.

Experimentally hardcore, “The Idea Of Love” is Cold Cave at its most “passionate, coolest, punkest and rawest,” and it shows in the music video. It focused on a polished pair of monochrome lips fiercely mouthing the lyrics, with high contrast in the mood while slackly tugging the cigarette. The music piece is a release in emotion, through aggressive lyrics and visuals with a soft and easy relieving ending.

Through Heartworm Press, Cold Cave releases music in any format and at any time they choose, and for this track they chose Vinyl. Dear our romantically depressed friends, this music video is our present to you, on love and the hope of light.
