Pure Bathing Culture - FUV Live - 2013

by Kara Manning

When Pure Bathing Culture's Daniel Hindman and Sarah Versprille visited WFUV's studios, they observed that it was the second time they'd been to our Bronx studios. Their first time? As touring musicians with Andrew Cabic's Vetiver. Their work with Cabic  — and a friendship with musician and producer Richard Swift — led the Brooklyn-based couple to relocate to Portland, Oregon where they eventuallly formed Pure Bathing Culture. The pair released their graceful debut, Moon Tides, earlier this summer. Watch videos of Pure Bathing Culture live in Studio A and listen to a conversation with Hindman and Versprille via The Alternate Side in Session.

Not long ago, the band stopped by Studio A to play a handful of new songs, including their latest single "Scar." They also revealed the rocky road involved in the recording of the album and the evolution of Cloud Control's sound towards more electronic frontiers.

The Gentlemen of the Road tour with Mumford and Sons, The Vaccines and Bear's Den has taken over Forest Hills Stadium in Queens this evening so it seemed the right time for a Shuffle from The Vaccines.
