Cold Gawd Unveils New Single “You Should Be Fine Down There”

Cold Gawd is the flag under which California-based multi-instrumentalist Matt Wainwright creates stormy, wounded shoegaze music born of open tunings and R&B melodies. Inspired by these sounds, Cold Gawd presents a refined, modernized take on the genre.

Wainwright cites the thematic common ground between shoegaze and R&B as a central muse, both obsessively fixated on love, lust, and longing, in forms alternately grandiose and minor key. Lyrically, God Get Me The Fuck Out Of Here sways between oblique and desperate, yearning and resigned – with the exception of “Comfort Thug,” a brooding, largely improvised spoken word piece inspired by the notable lack of black musicians in shoegaze.

Cold Gawd is here to change that. God Get Me The Fuck Out Of Here — set for release on September 23rd via Dais Records— channels malaise and melancholy into gauzy, galvanized anthems of escape, change, and introspection. Today, Cold Gawd has unveiled the album’s lush, introspective second single “You Should Be Fine Down There”.
