Pure Bathing Culture
Pure Bathing Culture
Night Pass is Pure Bathing Culture’s first original album since 2015 and a radiant demonstration of time
dutifully spent between releases. The album opens with an anthem of renewal, “Thin Growing Thing”
— an intentional choice according to Sarah, who says, “We can’t imagine a better lyric from the album
to introduce a listener to what we are trying to say here. Love is something that has the potential to bond
us all and where it’s absent we should strive to create it.” This is Pure Bathing Culture’s constant, the
conviction that carries them from past to present. To seeds in the soil, Sarah sings:
lift for love and live for something // lift for love and live through something // lift for love and live through
something else
Pure Bathing Culture called upon friend and producer Tucker Martine (REM, My Morning Jacket, Neko
Case, Spoon) to join their journey. His studio became an oasis, a place of healing and of progress. This
darker incandescence of collaborative survival gleams through “Moonrise,” “Remember” and “Joyous
Lake,” the last of which provided Night Pass its title. “It’s our favorite song on the record,” Daniel and Sarah
confess in agreement. “It’s a meditation on patience and not giving up.”
the joyous won’t be jealous of // the heavens up above // in stream lit skies mysterious // above the joyous lake
If Night Pass clarifies only one thing, it’s that over the course of their Swift-produced debut EP and the
two beloved studio albums that followed, Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman have done more than
establish a musical identity; they’ve honed a sonic virtue. The album is a shining exhalation, beaming with
electric intimacy and propelling Pure Bathing Culture into due triumph. The album closes with “Violet A
Voyager,” a softly resolving song that Daniel and Sarah always knew would come last, the first glimpse of
violet on the horizon after the black of night.
what dreams give back again // at night beneath the waves // as violet finds its way above the moonlight
shade
