The Drop: Cold War Kids
April 24, 2017 @ 7:30 pm
Los Angeles, CA 90015 United States
On their sixth album LA Divine, Cold War Kids pay tribute to Los Angeles and all its strange glory. The latest album, the follow-up to 2014’s Hold My Home, which featured the gold-certified single “First,” is slightly tongue-in-cheek in its title. “In many ways L.A. is the least divine city, the most hedonistic and irreverent and disconnected from history,” says Cold War Kids’ singer/guitarist/pianist Nathan Willett. Still, LA Divine embodies the Long Beach-bred band’s endless fascination with their adopted hometown. “L.A.’s so massive, I feel like I’m always finding something new in it,” says bassist Matt Maust. “It’s an incredibly weird place, and I’m happy to have made a record that totally honors that weirdness.” With its sonic palette inspired by everything from Frank Ocean’s Blonde to Florence & The Machine and Alabama Shakes, LA Divine merges that artful, hook-minded production with Cold War Kids’ classic post-punk grit. The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to welcome Cold War Kids to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate discussion on their new album, followed by a special performance. The evening will be hosted by Scott Goldman, Vice President of the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares.
