Pure Bathing Culture
The group's members, Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman, first met while college students in New Jersey, they lived in New York and both moved to Portland, Oregon in 2011, playing in the group Vetiver. Around 2012 they began playing live shows, and released an EP produced by Richard Swift in 2012 on Father/Daughter Records. The band released its first full-length album on Partisan Records in 2013. The album was highlighted by the single, "Pendulum," which some critics likened in style to Fleetwood Mac. One of the tracks, "Scotty," draws its lyrics and melody in part from the 1980 hit single "Into The Night" by Benny Mardones.
