Northern California dreampop/ shoegaze outfit Soft Science have returned with a new single and accompanying video ‘True’. It’s taken from their recent album ‘Lines’ which dropped earlier in the month on Shelflife (US) and Spinout Nuggets (UK).
The band was forme in 2009 by longtime collaborators Katie Haley (Holiday Flyer, California Oranges) and brothers Ross and Matt Levine (Welt, The Tank, California Oranges) with it further expanding with the addition of Tony and Becky Cale (English Singles, Arts & Leisure), and Hans Munz.
Taking its lead from the classic dream pop and shoegaze bands from the early throws in electronic synth lines here and there, but is awash with these classic harmony heavy vocals, huge splashes of chords and this almost Blondie like power pop that makes it impossible to either ignore or to not love. Not with those melancholy melodies anyway.
