The Soft Moon // In Short

unnamed

If you’ve been paying any attention to the Brooklyn-based Captured Tracks over the last couple of years, you’ll know that the label’s boasted one of the most consistently impressive rosters – so you can safely bet that anything new from the people who brought you Mac DeMarco and Perfect Pussy is going to be up our alley.

Indeed, The Soft Moon’s music is instantly mesmerising; brooding, industrial, brilliantly creepy stuff to soundtrack the run up to Halloween. We caught up with him ahead of his show at Electrowerkz on October 21st, which you should probably make an effort to get out to, him being ace ‘n’ all.

Check out one of his tracks below while you read his rather fittingly dark answers to our In Short, and get inside his vaguely twisted mind.
