Bridal Party Share Single and Video “Cool Down”

“Cool Down”, the first single from art pop quintet Bridal Party since 2019, makes danceable the feelings that come when the party’s over and it’s time to go home. Originally drafted in 2020 when anything resembling group celebration was a fantasy, “Cool Down” is both resistant to the come down after the party and in celebration of the moments when you are feeling so joyful in community that you don’t ever want to leave.

“Cool Down” began as a fragment captured on an iPhone in the band’s rehearsal space. “I was thinking about a Prince riff from ‘I Wanna Be Your Lover’ and how well the chords worked together” explains Keyboardist Jordan Clairmont. “So I started playing them in a different succession and everyone caught on and Joe started recording it.” Guitarist Joseph Leroux continues: “I could tell the chords and beat held something fresh for us, so I hit record and started playing along so the idea didn’t get misplaced.”
