New Song from the Curtains
Exclusive! Download "Green Water," the evocative new track from Chris Cohen, formerly of Deerhoof.
While on hiatus from Deerhoof’s mad touring schedule, Chris Cohen recorded and self-produced Calamity (out Oct. 24), his quirky new full-length under the moniker the Curtains. Like the songs of his former band, “Green Water” is a strangely beautiful and purposefully clumsy track that doesn’t make a whole lot of sense lyrically. Cohen told SPIN.com the song was recorded in his parents’ bedroom and inspired by a recent accidental trip into a swimming pool. There’s little meaning he’ll glean from the track, though, as he wants listeners to bring their own interpretation to his music: “I don’t want to limit people’s imaginations when they listen to the song,” Cohen said. The Curtains’ tour kicks off today.
