The single, “T.O.R.N.A.D.O.” was released last week and can be downloaded here for free!  Much like the title of the song, lead singer, Ninja, runs around the stage like a Tasmanian Devil with a vortex of energy.

Song of the Day – Thursday 2/25/2010 Cold Cave February 25, 2010

Do you miss the days when you were all about black—clothes, eyeliner, nail polish, lipstick, attitude? Your jet-black hair hanging in front of your face as you stood in the corner listening to New Order and Joy Division and thinking, “only Ian Curtis really understands me.”  Well now that you’re all growns up, relive your painful youth with Philly’s (now based in New York) Cold Cave; only now you realize love won’t tear you apart, but love comes close…and just when you think you’ve got Cold Cave pegged as New Order Redux, listen to “Life Magazine” for a disco dance-ready happy-go-lucky “now you’re part of the in-crowd” jam…

Cold Cave – Love Comes Close

If this song sounds familiar because you watch Gossip Girl, don’t tell anyone—just say you heard it watching Big Love or playing FIFA 10, or better yet, that MizMuze hipped you to it …
