On their sixth album LA Divine, Cold War Kids pay tribute to Los Angeles and all its strange glory. The follow-up to 2014’s Hold My Home — featuring the gold-certified single “First” — the band’s latest is slightly tongue-in-cheek in its title. “In many ways LA is the least divine city, the most hedonistic and irreverent and disconnected from history,” says Cold War Kids singer/guitarist/pianist Nathan Willett. Still, LA Divine embodies the Long Beach-bred band’s endless fascination with their adopted hometown. “LA’s so massive, I feel like I’m always finding something new in it,” says bassist Matt Maust. “It’s an incredibly weird place, and I’m happy to have made a record that totally honors that weirdness.”

For Cold War Kids — whose lineup also includes drummer Joe Plummer, multi-instrumentalist Matthew Schwartz, and guitarist David Quon — that rejuvenation follows a creative rebirth of sorts. As Willett explains, the band took a more pop-informed and decidedly inventive approach to the making of LA Divine. “From the start of the band, our tastes have always been very backward-looking in terms of the tones and sounds and instrumentation we’re working with,” he says. “On this album we wanted to embrace something more modern, because in many ways the most creative sounds happening right now are coming from the world of pop and out of that influence we’ve ironically created what sounds like our most rock record yet.”

Along with elevating Cold War Kids’ songwriting on LA Divine, that ever-renewing sense of purpose continues to breathe new life into the band. “I’ve seen a lot of bands get burnt out on their own songs after playing them for years, but for me that’s not the case,” says Maust. “I’ve been playing ‘Hospital Beds’ for 13 years, and it means something different to me now than it did when we first started. I don’t know where that spark comes from, but I don’t think I can stir it up on my own. You have to keep constantly showing up — and remember that this thing you created is really special, and you’ve got to do whatever you can to keep it alive.”
