New Audio: Rancho Cucamonga’s Cold Gawd Shares a Dreamy New Single

Through a handful of releases, the Rancho Cucamonga-based shoegaze/post hardcore outfit Cold Gawd have quickly established a unique and refined take on shoegaze and post hardcore that draws from early aughts nu-gaze and R&B melodies.

The Rancho Cucamonga-based outfit recently signed to Dais Records, who released their latest single, “Moving to California in March.” Centered around lush and swirling layers of guitars, the new single brings the painterly textures of A Storm in Heaven to mind. But just underneath the placid and dreamy surface is a an anxious and uncertain air.

“‘Moving…’ is a song about the anxious feeling that is making— what you think is— the biggest next step of your life,” the members of Cold Gawd explain in press notes. “‘Stay in Chicago?’  ‘Go home?’  You’ll always ask yourself, ‘was that the right move?’ but every day remember why you left.”
