    Cold War Kids

    Pop

    If Nathan Willett followed his usual impulses, Cold War Kids’ 10th album might just have been a five-song
    EP, or an album with entirely different songs than the 12 ultimately chosen here. Instead, Willett took a
    rare pandemic-era breather to really contemplate what a Cold War Kids album could, and should, sound
    like in 2023, and how to infuse the material with meaningful discourse about his life specifically and the
    state of the world more broadly. Clearly, it was worth the wait: the aptly self-titled result is perhaps the
    strongest and most well-rounded full-length in the long-running California band’s ample catalog, and the
    purest possible distillation of Cold War Kids’ nearly 20-year career.
    Over the course of nine studio albums and numerous EPs, Cold War Kids have become a major part of
    the modern musical landscape thanks to deeply personal songcraft and a commitment to forward motion.
    “First,” their platinum-selling 2015 single, named as the most played track at alternative radio outlets
    nationwide in the last decade, and 2007’s “Hang Me Up To Dry” remaining a festival staple. Their current
    lineup – Willett (vocals, piano, guitar), Matt Maust (bass guitar), David Quon (guitar, backing vocals),
    Matthew Schwartz (keyboards, backing vocals, guitar, percussion), and Joe Plummer (drums, percussion)
    – coalesced in 2016 and has released a whopping four albums and five EPs since then.
    “If I’ve got five songs done that I’ve worked on in a certain way, I tend to want to put them out as an EP
    and go do some shows around it,” Willett says of his mindset during the early stages of Cold War Kids.
    “Continually as my brain would go to that place, I’d go, no, just wait, and really put together a full-length
    record. I needed to approach things very differently and work with some new people in a way that was a
    little uncomfortable. This album is where I’ve most felt like I was the executive producer of everything.”
    At first, Willett thought initial work with producer Carlos de la Garza (Paramore, M83) could be grist for
    another quick EP. Eventually, he realized one song in particular from those sessions, “Run Away With
    Me,” was leading him down a different path. With its funky groove and huge chorus, “Run Away With Me”
    set the tone for what was to come on Cold War Kids: 12 high-minded, stylistically diverse songs
    referencing everything from Sly and the Family Stone and Curtis Mayfield to the Pretenders and Elton
    John to Happy Mondays and Gang Of Four.
    “The band started out with four guys who have very specific tastes and styles, and now it’s mostly me
    making the records in a way I love and have always envisioned,” Willett says. “The sound of Cold War
    Kids has always been there, and I wanted this record to be the ideal, best version of all those things
    we’ve always been.”
    Just as the music on Cold War Kids draws equally from the band’s blues-and-soul-driven sonic past as
    well as fresh forays into dance beats and ‘80s pop/rock, the album’s themes of creative life conflicting
    with domestic realities reflect Willett’s increasingly introspective state of mind. There are songs about
    breaking up with a trusted therapist (“Another Name”), juggling gender norms (“Double Life”) and
    reckoning with a toxic past (“Toxic Masculinity”), the desire to escape stability (“Stray”), and the beauty of
    surrender and weakness (“Blame”).
    Committed to pushing himself just as hard to create the album’s sound, Willett turned to a handful of new
    producers and collaborators, including Militarie Gun’s Max Epstein,Casey Lagos (Kesha, Wrabel), Ethan
    Gruska (Phoebe Bridgers, Weezer), Jenn Decliveo (Miley Cyrus, Hozier), and Malay (Frank Ocean,
    Lorde).
    “Like most people, I spent a lot of time at home during the pandemic with my kids, in many ways for the
    first time,” Willett says. “While my partner was working, I became the mother. I had to shed my identity as
    a musician and an artist and could no longer play the role of best supportive male provider. I wanted to
    channel all this struggle and soul-searching, because it gave me a window of insight and access to the
    feminine experience that I needed to grow and ultimately create this album.”
    Willett singles out the slow-burning, piano-dominated “Another Name” as a turning point. On the day he
    was scheduled to work with Gruska for the first time, he’d also had his final session with his longtime
    therapist. “I started telling Ethan about it, which could have been really awkward with someone I’d never
    met. It’s not easy to walk into a room and just write a song with a stranger,” he says. “But instead, it was
    totally natural. The song came out almost fully formed, and it was probably the single best experience I’ve
    ever had working with a producer.”

    totally natural. The song came out almost fully formed, and it was probably the single best experience I’ve
    ever had working with a producer.”
    As much as Willett is probing his own psyche on Cold War Kids, he’s also taking stock of how he interacts
    with the people around him. On the surface, the Malay-produced “For Your Love” is a universal song
    about a universal emotion, but in it Willett finds deeper meaning in holding his crying baby daughter in the
    middle of the night. Elsewhere, “Betting on Us” is both “a relationship song and a self-reflection song, but
    it’s also about being an artist. It’s so much easier to be driven by wanting to play your music and show it
    to people, and so much harder to have to slow down and say, what is the reason for any of this? What do
    I hope that this does? Do I want success for its own sake, and if so, I need to not (laughs). I already have
    so much!”
    This conundrum resurfaces in album closer “Starring Role,” which was inspired by an epiphany Willett
    had while idly looking at celebrity gossip on his phone while waiting to pick up a rental car. “On one level,
    Cold War Kids, and the success we’ve had, is an absolute miracle beyond anything I would have hoped,”
    he says. “On another level, like anybody, I see wrong moves we made or tours we should have taken or
    opportunities we blew, and I’m like, aaah! I think there’s more mountains for us to climb. You have to be
    honest and at the same time a little crazy to be like, I want more, but I don’t want to be narcissistic or
    greedy.”
    Ultimately, Cold War Kids is the culmination of Willett and Maust’s two-decade creative partnership, and it
    embodies the realization that said partnership is still truly worth celebrating. “For so many years, we were
    white-knuckling it and feeling like we were imposters,” Willett admits. “I realized, I can’t think that way. If
    I’m not sure I can listen back to something and know that it’s great, then I shouldn’t be putting it out.”
    “This group of friends met and were drawn to each other at a Christian college, and we started the band
    in a strange environment where we realized, what are we all doing here?,” Willet says. “We came from a
    place of growing up, listening to music, and going to shows, and there’s a type of sweetness where we
    were sheltered from the music industry or wanting to be successful at any cost. Maust and I still have that
    connection,and it’s still an important part of what Cold War Kids are today.

    Husbands

    Indie Rock

    Husbands knows the galvanizing power of an anthemic, hair-raising song. As the
    co-founding songwriter behind the Oklahoma City indie rock outfit Husbands, Danny
    Davis has been meticulously crafting emotionally potent tunes about finding your place
    in the world. His writing always strives to break free from monotony and routine, aiming
    for meaning and clarity through massive choruses and colorful arrangements. CUATRO,
    Husbands’ adventurous and triumphant fourth album out Oct. 13 via Cowboy 2.0 and
    Thirty Tigers, marks a turning point for the band. It’s the first LP written after the
    departure of longtime bandmate and collaborator, Wil Norton. It’s also an album that
    Davis made during a time of relative personal stability after quitting his nine-to-five and
    moving with his wife to Costa Rica. Across 11 arena-filling and richly-produced tracks,
    the full-length is a document of his growth as a human being and a testament to finding
    peace in relationships evolving.
