Blood Red Shoes - 'Cold'

Their most thrilling single yet

In which Laura-Mary Carter and Steven Ansell summon the spirit of ‘Rated R’-era QOTSA to sumptuous effect, and end up with their most thrilling single yet. Transforming them into ‘The Kills it’s OK to like’ in three minutes and 30 seconds, the brilliance of ‘Cold’ is particularly surprising due to its subject matter: stepping into the shower in the morning and realising your boiler’s fucked.
