Portland, Oregon originating band, Soft Kill’s ‘Pretty Face’ brings opportunities for the listeners to travel to another place and time. Fabulous beats, surrounded by energetic shoegaze inspired indie pulses, the band rocks you out with the darkness, and dances like it’s the dawn of something special.
‘Pretty Face’ is something of a journal entry, of which, describes a big slice of the dark sides that were experienced by the band in the past.
“We shot this to be a lyric video but we worked in some scenes, starting in Washington and traveling into the far north section of Portland, stopping by the abandoned dog track at Portland Meadows and ending at the motel made famous by Drugstore Cowboy. The imagery will resonate with some, I’m sure. The song is one we’ve played live for two years and it’s got a big cult following without ever having a studio version circulating.”
With the traditions of The Cure, The Smiths, and Joy Division within the nitty gritty of the single, Soft Kill’s instincts for vibrance wrapped in the dark putrid revelry of life, casts deeply and meaningfully into your listening soul.
With the devil inside.
Soft Kill is fab and you should know them better.
Upcoming LP ‘Dead Kids, R.I.P. City’ drops November 20th.
