Cold War Kids
Cold War Kids released their last single, Hospital Beds on May 14th 2007. Cold War Kids were one of the highlights at South by Southwest 2006, after a long bidding war between labels, V2 finally one.
Lyrically, Cold War Kids write stories about human experience in orchards, hotel rooms, laundromats and churches, sea ports and school halls; characters that are funny and serious at the same time, like J.D. Salinger or "Peanuts." Whether it's the man poaching bills from the collection plate during Sunday masses or the little prodigy who is miserable hearing his mother poking him to admire the Grand Canyon out the station wagon's window, these are everyday wretched people trying their damnedest to live well while teetering between despair, complacency and joy.
Cold War Kids are:
Nathan Willett - guitar, lead vox
