Cold River City, the Boulder band of torso-bending grooves and clean-guitar funkiness, releases a new EP this month.
The recording, called Thank You. Sorry. Love You., features five songs that offer all the dance-inducing and soul-yearning sounds that fans have come to admire. Highlights include the catchy chorus of the opening track, “Burn the Money,” and the sprinting lust song “Could It Be” (“… at least let me pretend I’m going home alone,” winks one line). Throughout is singer Emma Fields’ unmistakable pixie-timbred soul delivery. Fields’ voice is like a Deringer — dollish but dangerous.
The EP is due out on March 14. In the meantime, the band has several local live dates with The Revivalists: tonight at Fox Theatre in Boulder, on Friday at Ogden Theatre in Denver, and on Saturday at Belly Up in Aspen.
