Pure Bathing Culture – Ivory Coast


“Daniel Hindman and Sarah Versprille began writing songs together in 2009 while living in Brooklyn, NY. In 2011, between tours with Sub Pop’s Vetiver (who Versprille and Hindman play keyboards and guitar in respectively,) 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.” –Father/Daughter Records.


‘Ivory Coast’ is taken from Pure Bathing Culture‘s forthcoming their self-titled EP on May 22nd via Father/Daughter Records. It was recorded by Richard Swift at his National Freedom studio in Cottage Grove, OR. Pre-order the vinyl, HERE. Listen more tracks on their bandcamp.
