"A bright and buoyant reminder to live in (and embrace) the moment, “Movement” is an uplifting alt-folk celebration of the here and now."
"The sumptuous strings you hear right as it fades out are a real tease, but the abbreviated, energetic song should nonetheless whet your appetite for 'Coalescence' itself"
"'Golden Hour' will surely make you a believer that Jersey can summon a Brit sound as delicately as the west coast."
"A widescreen full-band folk song"
"A diverse sound, rich with harmonies and instrumental builds"
"Their sweeping sound with sensational production continues to grow with every release."
"With their spot on songwriting and boisterous melodies, Cold Weather Company is set to follow in the alt-folk leaning sounds of Avett Brothers, Ben Howard George Ezra."
"Featuring vocal harmonies before a darkly serene backdrop of layered instrumentation, the indie folk collective brings forward a rich intricacy and sweetness that speaks well to their latest project’s loftier ambitions."
"So emotive, brilliant in songwriting, captivating in arrangement – the band knows how to develop and encapsulate the feelings, pains, frustrations of a gone by relationship."
"The vocals are soaring over a majestic and sweeping musical background that keeps the listener invested"
"His bright mix of classical music and indie rock is balanced by the darker sounds of Curry’s folkie singer-songwriter approach and Petescia’s jam-band style."
On the video, Steve Shimchick of Cold Weather Company says: "We try to build a journey into each of our songs, typically based on what one of us is experiencing. For Movement, we also wanted to capture the journeys of our listeners. While the single is only a piece of the full song, it kicks off the answer to a prompt we gave our community in 2019, asking what was stopping them from making progress. It's rewarding to finally have the song out two years later, as my hope is that those who replied to the prompt are in healthier places mentally and physically. As that may not be the case for everyone, we can also acknowledge the work still ahead of each of us, and the importance of taking things as they are from moment to moment—without overthinking or being too hard on ourselves. It's a reminder I've been grateful for recently.”
Steadily building their artistic style and audience for the past seven years, New Jersey based alternative folk band Cold Weather Company carries a diverse sound, rich with harmonies and instrumental builds. The band combines the various writing approaches and influences of its three members, Brian Curry, Jeff Petescia, and Steve Shimchick, to create unique arrangements with intricate layering. Over the past few years, the band has earned over eight million cross-platform digital streams and supported acts such as Tall Heights, Jamestown Revival, and Juke Ross.
On their fourth full-length album, Coalescence, Cold Weather Company continues to expand their acoustic-forward, alternative folk sound into new territory. With delicate additions of synths and electronic instruments, as well as a broadened palette of horns, percussion, strings, and harmonies, "Coalescence" explores each song down to its smallest sonic niche. Conceptually, the album revolves around growth by highlighting our capacity to better ourselves and our connections through introspection and reflection. Often occurring cyclically, especially in nature, the idea of growth also inspired the release process for the album which will be split into three parts, each representing a different conceptual facet.
Deko Entertainment Bruce Puciarello states, “An intellectual, a brilliant artist, and an amazing musician. Which is which? All are all. CWC's new release will blow your mind and tease what is soon to follow. A perfect album, released in three parts, by three of Deko’s closest friends. It all adds up!”
