Published Apr 08, 2019Since issuing their New Emotion EP through Arts & Crafts last year, Vancouver-area grunge punks Dead Soft continue to display a serious work ethic. In addition to a near endless streak of tours (of which they've added more dates), the band have dropped a new single.
"The Static" finally allows for Dead Soft to indulge in the tones suggested by their band name, trading their usual belt-along choruses and enormous guitars for something a little more atmospheric. It's a nice change of pace and manages to highlight Keeley Rochon's vocals in a new light.
"The song represents the feeling of being alone and afraid, having a partner to rely on but becoming aware of the fact that there's more to life than blacking out for the entirety of your work day only to get home and collapse in the arms of the one you love," Rochon said in a press release. "It's also a love song."
