May 11. Port­land Ore­gon’s SOFT KILL re­turn with the tri­umphant fol­low up full length “Sav­ior” to be re­leased by Pro­found Lore Records on May 11, bring­ing their unique blend of gloom, laced with pop charm and flaw­less song­writ­ing that tran­scends the post punk genre. SOFT KILL have ma­tured into a pow­er­house, ef­fort­lessly com­bin­ing gen­res with raw emo­tional sto­ry­telling. From the pop per­fec­tion of ‘Try­ing Not to Die’ to the swelling and crush­ing gui­tars on ‘Hard Candy’ to the un­re­lent­ing dirge of ‘Bunny Room’, “Sav­ior” is a cre­ative tour de force. Draw­ing from a di­verse mu­si­cal pal­ette, “Sav­ior” is in­flu­enced by early U2, Gun Club, The Re­place­ments and a re­quiem to Tom Petty. (RIYL: Drab Majesty, The Cure, Chameleons, Joy Di­vi­sion etc)
