Daniel Hindman and Sarah Versprille began writing songs together in 2009. In 2011, the duo packed up their lives, moved to Portland, OR and realized that it was time to put a name to the new project -- Pure Bathing Culture was born. Through various serendipitous connections, multi-instrumentalist and producer Richard Swift heard their early demos and immediately invited them to record with him at his National Freedom studio in Cottage Grove, OR. On Pure Bathing Culture's debut S/T EP, their elegantly smooth pop melodies embody the nostalgia of soft 80s pop with a freshness all its own. The first 12" pressing is on black vinyl. The second pressing of the s/t EP is limited to 500 on Milky White Electric Blue Haze vinyl. Every record comes with an instant digital download.
"There's something about the lead song...that glowers like a grey English afternoon, the dejected guitar lines stinging like the watery rods that poured through the Sundays' 'Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic'." -- Pitchfork
"I dare you to escape the entrancing charms of "Lucky One" without hitting the repeat button" -- Portland Mercury
