Description: “The overall atmosphere of Pure Bathing Culture’s sophomore full-length, Pray for Rain, is one of merciless cheeriness — the kind perpetuated by the California drought, bringing sunshine day after day as plants wither and streams run dry. Lead singer Sarah Vesprille’s lyrics bring out the more sinister, heavy undercurrent of the havoc wrought by those golden rays. Throughout Pray for Rain, she and bandmate Daniel Hindman labor over ideas about connection, communication, and staying true to oneself creatively, filtering their own experiences through a wider lens of how hard it can be to figure out a path through early adulthood while attempting to keep all your childhood dreams intact.

Much of the album floats through a light, tropical soundscape that evokes ’80s yacht rock, a touch more polished and less murky than their 2013 debut, Moon Tides. The juxtaposition of bright melodies and gloomy themes is an approach as old as pop music itself, to be sure, but Hindman and Vesprille make it their own by never losing sight of the interplay between the two — the tragic and comic masks that are nothing more than two sides of the same coin ...”—Katherine Flynn, Consequence Of Sound
