Somewhere between Beach House, the '80s, and The War on Drugs exists Pure Bathing Culture, the dream pop duo from Portland. The big, floaty sound of the partnered bandmates stems from Sarah Versprille's melodically echoing vocals and Daniel Hindman's airily reverbed guitar work. Joined by drummer Brian Wright and bassist/keyboardist Zach Tillman, Pure Bathing Culture stopped by KEXP's studio before their show at Capitol Hill Block Party to play some dancey tunes for us.
