Following on from ‘Piano Player‘, ‘Soft Animal’ is the second track to be taken from ‘Goodness’ which is out 27th May via Tiny Engines.
Speaking to Fader, Christian Holden explains that ‘Goodness’ is “a progression from our last record in that it’s a development on a feeling. There are still a lot of feelings on Goodness, but it sort of evokes peacefulness, calm, and like, constant—not necessarily good, not necessarily bad, but something sort of steady. And there are more stories on this record then on the other records. The stories are a little bit mystical, in a way. Or maybe, a little bit more supernatural and less concrete in the real world. More surreal.
“Sonically, it consciously messes around a lot with space and around with silence. The last record was all action all the time, it didn’t really take time to stop. With this record, in trying to evoke peaceful and calm, we had to mess around with silence and space more, and try to not feed into the body’s desire to want that all-action-all-the-time, to force the listener to be patient.”
