Soft Kill find beauty in the darkness

I’ve been championing Soft Kill heavily over the last few months, largely due to their stunning album, ‘Choke’. I even went as far as to call it a “heart-wrenching masterpiece,” and I stand by that claim. It’s dark, brooding, and gloomy, yet creates tension to the point it that becomes euphoric.

The stand out track, for me, is ‘Frankie’. It’s a five minute emotional rollercoaster that finds beauty within the darkness of album. ‘Frankie’ blurs the lines between hypnotic post-punk and layered synthwave to create a hazy, lucid listening experience.
