Witterings from an old indie kid
Soft Science follow up their recent Undone single with another fine effort in the shape of Sooner. It’s very Lush (pun intended) as it sounds pretty similar to that band’s output circa 1990-1991. If you haven’t heard of Lush before then in a nutshell Sooner is dreamy, swirling shoegaze with lovely ethereal vocals.
It’s backed with the bands remastered cover of Northern Picture Library’s Paris track which they originally recorded for the excellent TBTCI Sarah Records covers project Popkiss last year. They slow it down and cover it in more 4AD inspired sounds complete with shimmering guitars and heavenly vocals. It’s another excellent double sided single from the band and it further wets the appetite for the release of the Maps album next month. It’s all Sweetness And Light. Get it from here.
