In 2022, Cola (a project from former Ought members Tim Darcy and Ben Stidworthy and US Girls/The Weather Station drummer Evan Cartwright), released their debut LP Deep In View on Fire Talk Records (Mandy, Indiana, Bnny). Earning praise from outlets like Pitchfork, Loud and Quiet, Uncut, DIY, FADER, NME and Rolling Stone who named the band an Artist You Need To Know and called their debut “one of the year’s most thrilling rock statements,” the album was one of the year’s most acclaimed debuts. 2023 saw the release of a deluxe edition of their debut, and the release a track called ‘Keys Down If You Stay’, a live staple that hinted at a new direction for the band.

This March they’re returning with a new single, ‘Bitter Melon‘, out now on Fire Talk. Looser, and more exploratory than their debut, ‘Bitter Melon’ shifts down into a hypnotic gear of repetition and polyrhythmic guitar fingering that evokes the more mystical side of krautrock or kosmische. It provides an intriguing suggestion of where the band might take the sound that was so lauded on their debut, maintaining their edge while giving themselves a little more room to breath.

“Cola’s debut album addresses modern anxieties wrought by technology in a world on the brink, bringing their imagistic worldview to the present…with sharper hooks and more succinct songwriting than the members’ past work. – Pitchfork

“’Very few bands currently operating are able to capture the mass content era, specifically the way in which it leaves you feeling bloated but somehow empty, than they do.” – FADER

“Bobbing and weaving, its wiry, intricate guitar part pushes Tim Darcy’s vocal into a different plane from his previous work.” – Clash (8/10)
