"Cold Beaches is an alternative rock group from Richmond, Virginia (so, to be fair, not technically DMV, but still local) fronted by vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Sophia Nadia. I wrote about Sophia’s previous band, Model Train Wreck, several months ago in my first DMV Bands article, and their self-titled album is easily one of my favorite albums that I’ve heard from the DMV scene. They have gone on indefinite hiatus since that article was written, but Sophia is back with a new band: Cold Beaches... ..... I’ve listened to this record a few times now and it has definitely grown on me. I’ve liked the album more the more times I’ve listened to it. It’s messy and dark and dissonant at times and sorrowful all the time. Seeing Cold Beaches perform live did not hurt my appreciation for this album either. There’s a lot of raw emotion that goes into their music and it translates into a fun live show." - The Odyssey, 2016
