Cardiff based psychedelic collective Soft Hearted Scientists have returned with a brand new double A side single ‘The Creeps/ Zeds’, out August 12th.
Always insidiously brilliant, the collective released their new double album Golden Omens (their seventh LP!), from which both tracks are taken from. ‘The Creeps’ is a glorious tapestry of dark-psych-pop – a seductive, smouldering brew of cosmic synths, watery keys, light percussion, gentle acoustic guitars, hushed, purring harmonies and all manner of sound effects – that delivers a spectacular kaleidoscopic, spectral midnight hour adventure. The most apt description is most likely their own, a “tip of the hat to “Moon Safari” era Air, with added Greek chorus choir, and BBC Radiophonic workshop sound effects”. Whatever the case, those lushly toned, haunting and woozy sounds are utterly mesmerising.
‘The Creeps’ and its companion ‘Zeds’, is out now, along with their new album, Golden Omens. For more info etc. just click here.
