FYM PRESS PLAY: COLD WAR KIDS NEW RELEASE

The Cold War Kids third full-length release, Mine is Yours is an uplifting subsection of blissful synchronized din. Mine is Yours, the title track, merges shimmering psyche with artful lush production values.

While other rock critics are holding it against the Cold War Kids for choosing producer Jacquire King (credited for killing the raw Kings of Leon southern garage sound, and worst yet, turning them into a white-hat bro band), these epic production values somehow work for the Long Beach natives. It's the first record FYM has heard, where the Cold War Kids heart/spirit seems to have reached it's full potential. See below for the album teaser:



The first three tracks alone are worth the price of admission with: Mine is Yours, Louder Than Ever, and Royal Blue somehow topping one after another as the greatest tunes this band has ever recorded.
