TUNE Softer Still - Junipero
Softer Still are an indie dream-pop band from Shepperton, Surrey consisting of wide-eyed sonic
explorers Grant Williams (lead vocals/guitar), Ellie O'Shea (backing vocals/bass), Alexander Williams
(guitar) and Ollie Kitson (drums).
'Visions Of You' (Released 28 th July) is the second EP to come from the blissed-out quartet, it includes
the singles 'Wishing Well' and 'Forever Faces'. The 4 tracks build upon their self-titled EP which was
released in November 2016, a record that attracted attention from the NME, Clash, BBC Introducing
and Steve Lamacq (BBC 6 Music), as well as catching the ear of American shoegazers DIIV, who
invited Softer Still to support them at London's Electric Ballroom in September.
Proving that Softer Still is an act for all indie generations they also supported ‘80s janglers The
Railway Children at the 100 Club. The band tell us that the EP touchs on themes of jelousy between
friends, obsessive love as well as complacency, regret and guilt within a once passionate
relationship'. Proving there are dark themes behind those blissful tunes.
The bands new single taken from their recently released 'Visions Of You' EP is entitled 'Junipero',
influenced by the meaning behind eppisode of Charlie Brooker's Black Mirror TV series of the same
name. The B-Side is a wonderful cover version of 'Talk To Me Like The Sea' by Everything But The
Girl, well worth a listen!
'Stunning new single...Anchored by a twisting guitar riff, it’s a delightfully breezy and laid-back sunbathing anthem with an undeniably catchy melody' – NME
