Dead Soft
Dead Soft
Dead Soft is a four piece rock n roll band from Vancouver, BC comprised of members Nathaniel Epp, Keeley Rochon, Kyle Schick, and Alex Smith. After forming in 2011, they have released a string of EPs and singles leading up to their debut self-titled album, originally released by Kingfisher Bluez in Canada and later on American soil by JEFF The Brotherhood’s Infinity Cat Recordings. Blending hefty portions of heavy, dirge-like punk with an upbeat pop flourish, Dead Soft has been known to evoke an aesthetic of doom and sweetness in equal measure.

When a baby’s born, I can’t help but think about the parents. Are they ready? Do they know what they’re getting into? Is that kid sorta fucked or sorta blessed? Same goes with bands where you already know their genealogy before the needle hits the groove. April Froschheuser was/is in Vena Cava. John was in The Achievement: two so-honest-it-aches bands that I’ve spent weeks-worth of spins listening to over the years. Black Dots sounds like a wise democracy that’s figured out its infrastructure before putting up flashing signage. Three principle songwriters. Two principle singers—vacillating between Florida ex-pat Wade and John—topically ranging from teenage depression-cutting to “the journey vs. the top of the mountain” headspace of an isolated band playing in Denver. In the background, on the blacktop in the distance, I hear Rumbleseat, Tim Version, long drives to find sympathetic souls, and small, semi-hidden tattoos being way more meaningful than sleeves of brightly-colored ink. Like little black dots. Worth seeking out. –Todd Taylor, Razorcake
