This band is amazing! Love the sound!

Eco Rockstar,

I stumbled upon this album and instantly fell in love with the song She Shakes and after previewing a few more, I decided to go ahead and go get the album on vinyl (this band is definitely vinyl worthy). I even got their first album at the same time. It reminds me of chilled out dream pop vibes like a high school dance in the 80s but in a good way. I love it when I find a musical gem like Pure Bathing Culture that I can really go all into and become an instant fan. It doesn’t happen a lot. Also I love this simple PBC, abstract album cover. It really fits their sound

Livin' On A Prayer!


I downloaded Pray For Rain even though the earliest comments on it I had read liked it even if it did sound more commercial/ pop whatever. I can't stop listening to it! Sarah's voice is so clean and ethereal I feel like I'm being serenaded by a siren and let straight to my heartbreak doom. Daniel is an incredibly talented musician and this newest track shows his quicker side. I love Pray For Rain for being clever and well paced and also for conjuring up diary safe memories from long ago.

About Pure Bathing Culture

The Portland duo Pure Bathing Culture play music that sounds like lo-fi and warped Cocteau Twins album tracks, filtered through late-night R&B and chillwave remixes of Fleetwood Mac. The duo of Sarah Versprille (vocals, keyboards) and Daniel Hindman (guitars, bass, and keys) first met at college in New Jersey in the late '90s, ended up dating a decade later, and joined the indie folk band Vetiver. They formed their own band almost by accident while fooling around with loops, then got serious, moved to Portland from Brooklyn, and released a self-titled four-song EP for Father-Daughter Records in 2012. Part of the reason for the move was to work with producer Richard Swift, and their first album, 2013's Moon Tides, was recorded over ten days at Swift's National Freedom studio and released by Partisan Records. For the touring that followed, the duo added bassist Zachary Tillman and drummer Brian Wright to the lineup. They were involved in the recording of the next album, too. Pray for Rain was produced by John Congleton, who worked with St. Vincent and Angel Olson, among others, and released by Partisan in late 2015. ~ Tim Sendra
