about

"Coldkill’s most recent release, “invisible”, is an ode to a failed relationship and all the steps that come after: heartbreak, anger, and the post-realization that what once had potential has now crumbled to pieces. The track—much more melancholy than the band’s first single, “i’m yours”—reads like a classic synthpop ballad from the 1980s with its moody synth patterns and a tempo just right for a slow dance at high school prom… if only it were a love song.

“invisible” is far from a happy ending as Rexx Arkana’s sorrowful vocals bleed over Eric Eldridge’s cold electronic composition. A rightful pairing that, together, evoke a bitter breakup song worthy of a John Hughes soundtrack. The music echoes early Ministry in all its honest simplicity and finesse—a reincarnation of the addictive synthpop of With Sympathy that Al Jorgensen is too afraid to admit is a masterpiece. “invisible” pays homage to the catchy, sticky sweet sadness of songs from our new wave record collections: the familiar favorites that console us when we need a good cry.

The b-side to “invisible” is a cover of the 1986 Eleven Pond underground hit “Watching Trees”. Coldkill’s interpretation—every bit as chilly as the original—is a testament to their placement within the ancestry of synthpop: saluting to the past while securing their relevancy for the future."

Track Name: invisible
this is how the story ends
you don’t love me
this is why we can’t be friends
my time’s not free
color me invisible
your sacrificial lamb
two worlds divisible
still here i stand

judge me all you would
you don’t know what i’ve been through
it takes more than eyes to see me
tell me that i should
set a precedent for you
yet, i’m the one who’s dreaming?

this is the second verse
i’ll waste on you
do you need more time to rehearse
or can we speak true?
anything is possible
just give it time
i’m downing shots of implausible
with a twist of lime
