Surrey indie dream-pop band Softer Still released “Turtle Bay” last month as the first single to come from their forthcoming debut album. With positive reviews coming out of the pipeline and favourable comparisons to the likes of The Cure and DIIV, the four piece now come through with an alluringly lo-fi new video.
Two successful EPs in the bag already (Softer Still and Visions Of You), which garnered a lot of strong praise from the likes of NME, BBC Radio 6 Music, Radio 1 and CLASH Magazine to name a few, “Turtle Bay” sees the band’s sound at its most breezy-beach-pop to date and it comes with a fully performative video set against the projected backdrop of the beach.
Speaking on the track, frontman Grant Williams and drummer Ollie Kitson state that: “‘Turtle Bay‘ is a metaphor for reaching paradise spiritually by pushing through the weather and chaos with someone you love on the journey of life as opposed to being an actual place.”
Having been personally invited to support American shoegazers DIIV on their recent UK Tour, Softer Still will be bringing tracks from their melodic debut album Nuances around the UK in November. Proving that Softer Still is an act for all indie generations, they have also recently supported renowned talent like Razorlight and The Railway Children.
