Descendentes direto do mais fino pós punk denso e cinzento, leia-se Sad Lovers And Giants, Chameleons, The Sound, Asylum Party e claro The Cure, o quinteto de Portland, Soft Kill volta a carga com seu novo álbum, "Choke" vem dar sequência a proposta de "Heresy" do ano passado.
"Choke" mantém a temática sombria, por vezes dançante, mas sempre, e em todos os momentos sem o menor vestígio de luz.
Aos desacreditados o pós punk continua gerando grandes e nublados álbuns, o Soft Kill comprova e injeta mais sombras no mundo.

playing live is therapy

dark post punk
Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
Tobias, Owen and I write and demo our songs together. The demos are often fully-realized and going into the studio is about getting the best sounds and performances for the songs. We recorded our new album, Choke, at B-Side Studio. It was recorded by Jason Powers and mixed by Ben Greenberg. Both Jason and Ben played a huge role in shaping the songs and helping us refine the collection of demos into a cohesive record.
Q. Which new bands do you recommend?
Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
We recently put a cover of "The Figurehead" by The Cure on Soundcloud.
Q: What are your plans for the future?
We are debuting a new live lineup for two weeks of shows with our homies All Your Sisters (from Oakland, CA) in December. In 2017 we will do more big things we've never done before.
Q: Any parting words?
Our new album "Choke" is available now from Profound Lore Records.
