Singled Out: The Dose's Cold Hands

Los Angeles rockers The Dose are releasing their debut EP tomorrow (April 8th) and to celebrate we asked frontman Indio Downey to tell us about the single "Cold Hands". Here is the story:

To me " cold hands" and "a warm heart" sort of represent longing and fulfillment. In a way you can't have one without the other. On my way to Tennessee I came across a letter my girlfriend wrote me. The lyrics to Cold Hands are inspired by what it said.

Ralph's drum beat and bass part gave the song a unique sound, and when he incorporated the synth pads it really came together. The variety of sounds we were able to achieve between the two of us, on this song particularly, is a good representation of what we want to accomplish in the future.

I used to play those two chords over and over for hours. Funny to think what became of something so simple.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself as you watch the video here and learn more about the new EP right here!
