A black mass of punk rock, doom-gaze awaits the listener, fired by the Gothic imaginings of vocalist/lyricist Maya. With its dark sound scapes spun in haunting imagery and a feeling of the uncanny, The Comfort of Loss & Dust plays like the aural accompaniment to a Hermann Hesse nightmare.

Since forming in 2010, London-based Cold in Berlin has played throughout Europe alongside some of the most revered alternative acts, graced major festival stages and won praise from influential publications including Q, Mojo, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound and Clash. Last year saw Cold in Berlin cement their position in the UK’s underground scene with a lauded appearance at Whitby Goth Weekend and a presence in the Terror and Wonder exhibition at the British Library.
