TUNE Softer Still - Eulogy
Softer Still are an indie dream-pop band from Shepperton, Surrey consisting of Grant Williams (lead vocals/Guitar), Ellie O'Shea (backing vocals/Bass), Alexander Williams (Guitar), Ollie Kitson (Drums).
'Eulogy' is the third single to come from the indie dream poppers, following prevous singles'New Age' & 'Bliss' , released earlier this year. They have attracted press attention from the likes of NME, Clash, BBC Introducing and Steve Lamacq as well as catching the eye of American jangly shoegaze outfit DIIV, who invited Softer Still to support them at London's Electric Ballroom in September, an invite that gladly accepted.
'Eulogy' takes the bands much loved 80's dream pop sound to a slightly darker place, with death being the lyrical theme, a change from previous singles which discussed love and lust.
All three singles will feature on the bands debut self-titled EP alongside new matterial, out on 25th Nov. Live action sees support slots with The Railway Children in Nov and the EP Launch will take place at The Old Blue Last on Fri 9th Dec.
'Stunning new single...Anchored by a twisting guitar riff, it’s a delightfully breezy and laid-back sunbathing anthem with an undeniably catchy melody'
'Lush, beautifully composed dream pop, the Surrey newcomers are reminiscent of Beach House, Galaxie 500, or perhaps even early Wild Nothing. Chiming, emotionally gripping shoegaze with lysergic feel.'

'the four-piece glide into view in an ethereal shimmer of shoegazey guitars and light vocals'
