Some truly wonderful and unexpected collaborations surfaced in the music scene last week while I was running amok through the streets of Austin for SXSW, and one of my favorites is this song, the latest from Long Beach rockers Cold War Kids featuring Los Angeles’ Bishop Briggs. The moment I saw that the two had partnered up for the cut off Cold War Kids’ upcoming album La Divine, I could barely contain my excitement. So Tied Up (Los Feliz Blvd) comes by way of an acoustic video recorded live at Sonora Recorders in Los Feliz. It affords us a spectacular vantage point when it comes to Cold War Kids’ bluesy soulful delivery and Bishop Briggs’ ever intense and impassioned vocal prowess. This stripped down rendition of the song features an alternate arrangement with a string quartet and more prominent vocals by Bishop Briggs. We love them both, and we love this new song. Cold War Kids’ new album drops April 7th, pre-order, here.
