The cozy sonics of the 90s—replete with vast reverb, driving basslines, and lush, girlish vocals—continues to appeal. What can we say? Nostalgia comes packaged in many forms, but none is more sweetly affecting than when you get swooped sideways by a song. And so it is with The Cold and the Lovely new track, “Radio,” premiering above: familiar but fresh.

The duo says of the EP, “The Ellis Bell is the vision that we had for the Cold and Lovely from the time the band was just an idea. The sound has been compared to some of our favourite bands, such as Lush, Garbage, My Bloody Valentine, and Silversun Pickups.”

Made up of Meghan Toohey (The Weepies, Lenka, Schuyler Fisk) and Nicole Fiorentino (latter-day Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt), the LA duo will release heir new EP, Ellis Bell Deluxeon June 17th. Ellis Bell, an EP by the Los Angeles-based shoegaze duo
