I'm gonna be honest. I've always been on the fence about California indie rockers Cold War Kids. I remember the first time I heard "Hospital Beds" from 2006 album Robbers & Cowards and I thought, what's the big deal? Skip forward a couple of years and I just had a weird desire to listen to them again with tracks like "Hang Me Out To Dry" being too catchy to put down.
With all this uncertainty in mind, new track "All This Could Be Yours" might just be a game changer. Straight away you're hit with that driving piano riff backed by pulsating drums and vocalist Nathan Willet's distinctive, reverb laden tones culminating in foot taps and head nods.
I'll let you make your own mind up about this track, but for me, "All This Could Be Yours" is an enticing gateway to a Cold War Summer.
