Published May 18, 2012Icy post-punks the Soft Moon are apparently prepping a new album called Zeros for release on Captured Tracks this fall, but the group have just unveiled some new material to follow their 2011 EP Total Decay. The song in question is called "Evidence," and it pairs the troupe with former Ultravox singer John Foxx and his current collaborators, the Maths.
You can stream the slow-builder, which coasts into the ether via lightly oscillated synth tones, spacious harmonic washes and cascading vocal harmonies, down below.
Soft Moon leader Luis Vasquez revealed in a press statement that it was, obviously, a pleasure to work with one of his electronic music heroes.
"Foxx's Metamatic album is what led me to discover the Arp Odyssey, the most crucial instrument in my collection, and the key synthesizer used in creating my unique sound. So, that album is very important to me and what I do."
Foxx, meanwhile, paid Vasquez and the Soft Moon back in kind with some compliments too: "The Soft Moon are where minimalism maximises into a new universe of possibilities. It's an absolute joy for us to work with them.''
Captured Tracks issue "Evidence" on a one-sided seven-inch on June 26.
