First Listen

Soft Metals "Eyes Closed"

Here, we have the premiere of another cut of glistening synth-pop from Portland duo Soft Metals' forthcoming self-titled LP. "Eyes Closed" follows about a month after we first heard "Psychic Driving," and exhibits Patricia Hall and Ian Hicks crafting a more upbeat, dancefloor-friendly tune compared to their dreamy first single. But that's not to say this one doesn't have a romantic side; Hall's soft, spacey vocal melodies never fail to wrap Soft Metals' icy sounds with a much-needed layer of human emotion. We look forward to hearing more of the same when Soft Metals is released on July 19 via Brooklyn's Captured Tracks.
