Fans of huge soccer stadium sing-alongs, gigantic layers of lush guitars, and bouncy beats, say hello to your new favorite band. RIYL: Stone Roses, My Bloody Valentine, and early U2.


Reminiscent enough to be familiar, yet fresh enough to be exciting, SOFT is the sound of five guys making one big sound: spacey, shimmering, beautiful rock music. Formed just over a year ago, the genesis of the band was an organic one with mutual friends from areas as divergent as Wisconsin, Illinois, Texas, and Connecticut coming together to do what seemed most natural to them: make music. The lack of a stated musical blueprint produced not the expected chaos but a surprising cohesion, and the song writing began. Months of perfectionist tweaking and fine-tuning culminated with a trip to a haunted ranch in upstate New York, which in turn yielded the five songs that eventually landed on the bandÂ’s debut EP. Sold out shows around New York soon followed as did support slots for the likes of Mark Gardner, Hard Fi, and Sons and Daughters.
