cold/mess

Prateek Kuhad

cold/mess

The title track of the singer-songwriter’s 2018 EP, cold / mess, was a breakout hit that laid bare an unhappy love’s inner turmoil—and also, famously, found its way onto Barack Obama’s list of his top songs of 2019. This re-release polishes Prateek Kuhad’s signature gossamer indie rock in opener “with you/for you” and layers rich acoustic textures in the faster paced “for your time”. Nobody writes about the decay of a relationship quite like Kuhad, whether on the searingly incisive, gently-strummed guitar ballad “fighter” or the quiet, piano-led ode to unrequited love “100 words”.
