The Cold and Lovely are Grammy-nominated session player/song-in-the-best-part-of-the-TV-show maker Meghan Toohey and veteran bassist (Smashing Pumpkins, Veruca Salt, back to Radio Vago even) Nicole Fiorentino, and that means if you’ve ever heard music you like come out of a speaker in the last five or ten years, one of them probably had something to do with it. On their recent Ellis Bell EP, they dissolve everything from Stereolab to Primal Scream to glossy '80s new wave into a precise and irresistible kind of alt-pop that hits every sweet spot in the human brain. Naturally, it’s been rave reviews ever since—and by the time they get a new full-length out, they’ll be ready to assume full control of whatever media is left.
