At first glance, the cover of Prateek Kuhad's captivating new EP, cold/mess, seems utterly romantic. The artwork depicts two lovers, bodies intertwined in a deep and lasting kiss, oblivious to the world around them. Take a closer look, though, and you'll see that the couple is actually underwater, drowning as their embrace drags them further and further beneath the surface. In a flash, ecstasy has turned to agony, and the love that nourished and sustained them now seals their tragic fate. "Relationships can be very dichotomous," says Kuhad.
